Gas gage went to empty and low gas light went on and low tire light


Put gas in your car and check your tire pressures. If your fuel gauge just "Jumped" suddenly to empty, you probably have a bad sending unit in the fuel tank.

Test alternator. With engine running, voltage at battery should be at least 14 volts. If not, remove alternator and have it tested at parts store. Low voltage could be setting all 3 lights. Let us know if you have more questions.

Fuel Gage


this problem is caused by a defective fuel gauge sending unit, the sending unit is inside the gas tank, you must drop the fuel tank out of the car to replace the sender, it is part of the fuel pump module.

Fuel gage on 2005 altima is way beyond full. Does


It is either the sending unit in the gas tank or the dashboard gauge, either job poses its own challenges take your pick. If it is the gauge if you were lucky in a couple of weeks it will become unstuck in to pegged out position but that is only if it is a mechanical issue with the needle itself wedged in place.

Gas gage stuck


Sounds like your fuel level sending unit is bad. This is a common problem with these and my 190E is doing the same thing. They are very easy to replace. If you decide to do it get beck to me and I will walk you through it.
