Its uncommon for honda to have problems with the gas gauge unit but is possible, the first thing is to check all the fuses, this may have a bad sending unit which is located inside the fuel tank, to gain access remove the rear seat bottom, you will see a round plate, remove it, they are held it by glue chalk, pry off, then you will see top of the tank with a cover which is the fuel sending unit, remove the bolts and pull out and check the float arm see if it fell off, also before removing it check the connection and wiring to make sure the wiring is good.

    My car had a similar issue, it would not accurately show the amount of fuel unless it was 3/4 full or lower. It would sometiems go to full, sometimes stay at 3/4, then as it went down, it went accurately. After I had the timing belt replaced it was fixed, not sure if it was related, or the mechanic tightened up a loose cable while they were working on it.

The easy fix, is if the ground wire back near the tank coming from the fuel pump in the tank, coming out the top, and going to the frame is corroded or broken

Very likely the (sending unit) located inside your gas tank.

In order to fix this, you will have to (or have it done)...drop the gas tank and remove the old unit replacing it with a new one, then return everything as it was. hope this helps!

    If your particular model does not provide an access door under back seat cushion, you will have to lower the fuel tank to gain access to the fuel pump.

Where is the thermostat located on the 1998 accord ex 4cyl? I have noticed the temp gauge rising repidly in only a 1-3 mile drive, I thought the thermostat may not be opening and wanted to change it.


Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine. The place where the hose mates the engine is the thermostat housing, and of course, the thermostat is inside it. Another reason for rapid temperature increase is that the electric radiator fans are not turning on when the engine reaches normal operating temperature.

Gas gauge does not work on my accord


you may have damaged the fuel gauge when you were messing with the gauge cluster, they can be very delicate.

Check you connections real well.

Could be also, just by coincindence that the sending unit in the gas tank has gone bad.
