The float in the tank has probably corroded and broken off making the gauge read empty all the time you have to drop the fuel tank to replace the float.

What would cause fuel gauge to stop working, and tripometer, and odometer to stop working?


I don't know that any one thing would cause these issues.

As for the fuel gauge, you may need to replace the sending unit in the tank.

As for the trip/odometer, you may need to replace the gears.

My gas gauge stopped working,says it's full,I go to put gas in it and can't get gas into tank ,it wants to come out,but knowing it's empty,was wandering if it needs a new sensor?


Putting gas has nothing to do with you fuel gauge problem
Must problems to add fuel and comes out can be cause by air flow in the tank, also it is recommended to fuel with the engine turn off so the pressure from fuel pump going back to the tank will not affect the fueling , about you fuel gauge not working properly can be cause by a electrical problem such wiring or defective gauge or can be fuel sender problem with most the time it is install on fuel pump assy.

Fuel gauge gmc


It could be a loose connection on the gauge or the fuel sending unit.
The fuel sending unit can get worn and have breaks in the contact area that is used to determine float position to send the fuel level reading to the gauge.
I suspect that you have problem with the fuel sending unit considering that the light is on. I am assuming that the light that is on is the "low fuel light". Check your connections at the sending unit if the connections are secure then I would suggest replacing the fuel sending unit.

After market fuel pump installed in 2004 malibu maxx why did the fuel gauge stop working?


it sounds like a problem with the sending unit. This is usually with the fuel pump itself. The wiring may not have been hooked up quite right or the sending unit may just be bad. That will cause the fuel gauge to stop working. The wiring harness for different cars is different and even varies sometimes just on year of the vehicle.

My gas gauge does not work?


If you're fuel gauge stopped working, this would not affect the fuel pump or pump relay. More then likely, the sending unit is at fault. You may check fuses to see if this vehicle has a fuse for the gauge. some do. The fuel pump has a relay under hood and also a 30 amp fuse.Has separate circuits for gauges.I would be looking at the sending unit.
