No your problem is the sending unit but first check if ther not a short to positive.
the fuel pump is under the cargo floor carpet disconet the 4 wire plug from pump open the ign and check how many positive you have (need 2) if there more you have a short if not replace the sending unit.

Check that the float isnt getting stuck or even bad also check the wires some times the float can get hung up and will only read to a certain point, or it could even your gauge could be off might need to pull the insterment cluster cover off and slide the needle off and reset it i would check the float first though

Battery went dead for my 2005 range rover but i recharged it right away. now my fuel and rpm gauge stay zero.speed and temperature gauge is ok.


Disconnect the battery both leads and join them together for half hour then see what happens if they still dont work then iam afraid you have had brown out in the system and this will have damaged the speedo unit electronics which are on the back of the speedo ,it has a mini computer on the back in fact and its expensive

Dash gas gauge stops showing proper gas level once it hits half a tank. Then gauge will fluctuate between empty (light will come on), full and anywhere in between but seems fine from full tank to half


If the trouble with the gauge started after you worked on it then you likely damaged or created a restriction to the movement of the sending unit. You will have to remove the tank and double-check your work.

Fuel gage showing half a tank but trip computer only registering 60 miles left


Its very simple. If the gauge is showing half full then fill the tank and see how much fuel it takes. If the amount you add is approximately 50 percent of the fuel tank capacity then you know the fuel gauge is accurate . In that case the computer is giving an inaccurate reading and should be ignored. All you need is an accurate fuel gauge - it does not matter a row of beans what the computer says if the fuel gauge is reading correctly.

Fule gauge dose not work right


Does it stick at about half full? I would fill up, the gauge would show full then after 60-70 mile when gauge should show less than half to a 1/4 tank the gauge still showed 1/2 tank so I'd go ahead and fill it up. Finally, I watched my mileage and when my yellow low on gas light came on I filled it half full. After a couple of weeks I filled it up and the gauge has worked every since.

Fuel gauge doesn't work on my 1996 Range Rover


On any vehicle's fuel tank you will find an electrical switch. This is the fuel gauge. Replace it and see if thats the problem. (they are cheap). If you still have a problem, then run the wires to the fuse panel. You may find a short or a fuse blows. Please let me know it I can be of help

Pressure test the system, it sounds like head gaskets that is backing into the water jackets and not the oil ports, which is the best of the two. Have heads checked for cracks of warping.
