Broken fuel gauge - 1999 Audi A4

Posted by on

  • addressit2me Nov 14, 2008

    Most of the time the gauge indicates no fuel, but occasionally it moves up to the 3/4 full mark. There appears to be no correlation between fuel levels and whether or not the gauge works.

I dropped the tank on my '99 Durango, installed a new fuel pump unit but the fuel gauge still shows empty. How do I troubleshoot?


The fuel gauge is directly controlled by the fuel sending unit inside the fuel tank, it sends a ground return signal back to the fuel gauge. I am assuming of course that your fuel gauge is okay. To test your fuel gauge, connect the wire which goes to the fuel sending unit to chassis ground. Your fuel gauge should respond and indicate Full Tank. If not, there is a broken wire somewhere between your fuel gauge and the sending unit. Before connecting the wire that goes to the sending unit to ground, check it first with a DC Voltmeter, you should be able to read +12volts. Be sure that you turn your ignition switch to it's ON position.

Had fuel level sensor replaced few years ago. today fuel gauge needle does not move and is positioned below the empty point. any ideas what may cause this?


It could be any one or more of this list:
Fuel level sensor. Just because you replaced it once, doesn't mean it's still good.
Connection to fuel sensor
Broken wire between fuel sensor and gauge
Broken wire between battery and fuel sensor/gauge
Bad gauge

I have a97 chevy c1500 the fuel gauge never worked,so i put a new sending unit in still dont work gauge reads past full @all times can anyone help


Your problem with you fuel gauge is not the sending unit or the gauge in the cluster. You have a broken ground wire in the the harness that goes to the sending unit. look for broken wires or wires that have bin picked with a test light they will have corrosion

Daihatsu fourtrak broken fuel gauge


it could be anything from the float in the tank is broken or stuck to a bag gauge. I would lean towards the float or perhaps a broken or chaffed wire somewhere between the tank and the gauge.

Fuel gage not working on a 1998 vw jetta


i believe he means how can he fix the fuel gauge not working problem not the running out of gas. since we already know why that happened (didnt know he was out of gas due to broken fuel gauge) theres only a few things it could be. the gauges power source or ground could be corroded or broken, the guage itself is broken or the sending unit is worn out or the wiring is faulty or broken to it.

Hyundai atoz temperature and fuel gauge needles have both suddenly gone to the extreme right


Hi, in my case, there was a fuel level gauge fault. Inside are tiny wires used like coils and one connection was broken. Fuel gauge also affects temperature gauge. From behind the dash check if on position signed 7V is about 7 volts. If not, that is the problem.

My fuel gage recently started to behave in a weird way. It can drop rapidly like in 2 seconds to a position below the Empty mark regards of the fuel amount in the tank. Sometimes it just shoots up back to...


look for broken/loose wires/connections around the tank while someone else is observing the fuel gauge. a broken/loose ground could be at fault. the fuel sending unit sends the signal to the gauge, also, look for broken/loose wires/connections from the fuel tank to the fuel gauge if you haven't found the problem yet. if all else fais, ground the body with a temporary connection to see if that is good, body ground is needed to keep them running good.

Gas guage doesnt work


It sounds like a problem with the fuel gauge sender unit in the fuel tank which has worn out and gone open circuit and needs replacing. Access to the unit is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring connector and any hoses and then remove the securing screws. Replacement is done by reversing procedure.

ANYONE KNOW WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE FUEL GAUGE IN MY 2001 CHRYLSER SEBRING TO BOUNCE FROM FULL TO EMPTY AND DING THE LOW FUEL LIGHT ON AND OFF? IT JUST KEEPS DOING IT WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING.


  1. Abraded insulation on the fuel gauge sender wire (intermittent short to ground).
  2. Bad fuel level sensor.
  3. Corroded or broken connector in the fuel gauge sender circuit.
