Question about 2003 Subaru Forester

Subaru fule indicator

My fuel indicator reads empty even though the tank is full and the check engine light just went on. Have had no problems with this car and everything was working well last evening. Is there any way to fix the gauge without removing the gas tank?

Sorry no the sending unit in your tank is bad replace it. If you are sure of amount of as you have and you know your average MPG you could wait till your tank is low so as not to waste much gas Give yourself a 3MPG reduction for error accountability.

Low fuel light indicator


try checking for other fuses, replace them with the same ampacity. With the radio, radio and light are on the same fuse i believe the lights for the radio are bad. If fuses are okay maybe the light bulb for the low fuel indicator has blown the light bulb can be replaced.

Full tank-fuel gague registers empty-need fuel light is on


There is a sending unit in the fuel tank that registers how much fuel there is. It is probably broken, giving you a funny reading on your gauge.
