Fuel tank does not have a separate fuse- more than likely you have a broken wire at the tank connector or a bad ground at the tank

Is there a fuse or relay for the fuel gauge,does the gauge share a fuse with other electrical consumers ?

should be a fuse in fuse panel for all gauges, not one per gauge.. there is a fuel pump relay on most fuel injection cars but that gives fuel pump power . most of the time if fuel gauge is not working its the sending unit inside the tank ,wich if your in there might as well change fuel pump to.

97 VW Jetta GLS, manual transmission. The speedometer stopped working & the fuel gauge is jumping around.

Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John

The fuse gauge has stopped working. Do I need to check any fuses or must I find a new gauge.

Resistance meter needs to be coupled to fuel sender to check gauge or through diagnostic test mode using VW tester VAS5051.It will probably be sender unit in tank

Fuel gauge just stopped working.Had new petrol pump fitted 2 weeks ago. My question is : is their a fuse relating to fuel guage or do I need a new gauge ? I would appreciate some feedback .

There is no separate fuse for the gage--it uses the same power as the others. The fuel level sending unot is integral with your new pump. This leads one to wonder if the new pump has a defect or perhaps was not installed correctly. Let me know if you have more questions.

there is no fuse for only the fuel gauge light. the fuse for the panel illumination is all on the same fuse so if only one part of the panel is out then its will be a bulb or diode behind the gauge that has failed.

Speedometer, tachometer, fuel, and temp gauge not working

Take out the pc board and examine the copper traces. On my '94 Jetta I found one corroded trace that disabled the the same functions. I had to solder a wire to fix the connection. Good luck.
