You don't list your year or model but more than likely it is the sending unit in the tank. Some are replacable and some come as module which is the pump and sending unit in one.

My fuel guage doesn't work


you don't, it either works or does'nt, check all grounds, put power to it (12) volts, sending units are very delicate, care must be taken when replacing, in tank, . a wire diagram would show you the power wire, the ground wire, etc., maybe you can check it ?

Change fuel gauge and fuel pump on a 2002 tauras a gauge still doesn't work . What else could be the problem


I assume you are not getting a level on the guage - it would be the sender unit if this is the case.

Fuel guage doesn't work


Most common cause of this is a defective fuel level sending unit inside the gas tank. Remove the gas tank and replace the sending unit.

1991 honda accord starts intermittently. When it doesn't the gas guage goes below E. Gets spark, no fuel. Already changed main relay.


Hey man if you already changed out the relay i would try changing your fuel pump and sending unit that should stop both of your problems.

Fuel gauge not working


GM has a real bad wiper system on the sender in the tank. It usually wears through then the fuel guage doesn't work.

It sounds like your fuel pump is bad. The fuel sending unit, which tells your gas guage how much gas you have is integrated into the pump so when you replace the pump it will fix both problems.

Good Luck!

Just bought a '92 plymouth Acclaim with 37000 miles. It's in great shape but I'm not sure if the fuel guage is working. Only drove it home, less than 10 miles. Is the guage mechanical or...


There's a float inside the tank that the fuel gauge works off of. If you step on the brakes or accelerate hard it causes the gas inside the tank to slosh around and you can see the fuel gauge move when you do this. If you know the vehicle has gas in it, the best way to check if the gauge is bad is to drive around enough to where you should have burnt a noticeable amount of gas. If the gauge doesn't move, then there's something wrong with it.


Since the gauge moved when you braked hard, I would assume it's working properly because it picked up on the level change inside the tank where the float's at.

2001 chevy 1500 5.3l 4x4 fuel guage not working. changed sending unit no change. grounded gauge in dash went to full not guage. not getting power to sending unit fuses/ wiring good


You won't get power at the sending unit. The sending unit provides a variable ground to the dash unit. Where did you ground the dash unit? If you disconnect the sending unit at the tank and ground the fuel gauge circuit there the gauge should go to full. If if doesn't the problem is between that connector and the place you cheched it before. If it does the problem is with the sender. Occasionally new parts are found to be defective.

Silverado 2000 5.3 4x4 gas gauge not working properly. Listen I have installed (2) new fuel pumps and fuel level sensor. I installed a insturment cluster. I ran a new ground wire from fuel pump to...


there are 4 wires at the sender - and 3 wires for the vapour sensor-the two heavier wires are for the pump and the lighter wires are for the guage-the lighter purple wire should have 5 volts on it-if not you may have a wire or computer problem-th guage is an input to the pcm(computor) under the hood and then is transmitted via comm. line to the cluster-if the rest of the guages work in the cluster you need to look at the pcm or wiring to the tank
