My fuel gauge stopped working


Hi, probably your gas tank float doesn't work. According to me cause of the problem , some metal parts of gas tank float mechanism is stuck or the gas tank float is dislocated.

My gas gauge don't work. how do you fix that problem?


Hi, 1st , of course, check for a blown fuse for your instrument panel.
If your gas gauge is reading empty then it could be that the float in the gas tank has a leak and doesn't float anymore. It has sunk. This will cause a working gauge to show empty all of the time. The float that goes into the gas tank is about 1.5 inches long by about an inch wide. It should be a hollow brass cylinder.
this cylinder attaches to a swinging arm that when it moves in the tank, it shows a different resistance depending on where the float is. In other words the height of the float connected to the arm shows the different reading. Note: if you are going to replace the float, or the fuel tank sending unit, make sure the gasoline tank is as empty as possible.
Photo below of what a float looks like (this is probably not the exact one). You may only be able to purchase a complete "fuel sending unit", which includes the float. Probably the best way to get one is from a junk yard.

My gas light not working and it cut off wfen i get to 1/4 tank


By gas light I am assuming you are talking about your gas gauge that tells you how much gas you have. This is probably your fuel pump level sensor. The fuel pump has a float mounted on the sending unit which floats to the top of your tank when it's full and gradually decends into the tank as you use up your gas. Most commonly, the float builds up residue that in your tank which causes it to stick in one place which can explain why it's cutting off at a 1/4 tank. I hope this helps you solve the problem.

05 grd caravan fuel gauge showed quarter tank and


The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

FUELGAUGE STUCK ON MY 2002 FIREBIRD


There is a float in your gas tank that raises up and down. When you fill your car with gas it will move up, when your burning gas it will go down. So if your fuel gauge is stuck then your float in your tank is stuck and you won't know how much gas you have. To fix this you will have to remove the tank to fix the float. Hope this helps.

I have a 1994 dodge ram 1500 slt. and the gas gage will not read the amount of gas in the gas tank and gas light stays on when I know the tank is full. leaving me wondering how much gas i run on sometimes....


The problem is with the sensor inside the gas tank since the method of indication used is by passing an electric current & the resistance to that current is a measure of level of liquid in the tank , i.e. the gauge consists of two parts:
  • The sensing unit
  • The indicator
The sensing unit usually uses a float connected to a potentiometer. As the tank empties, the float drops and slides a moving contact along the resistor, increasing its resistance. In addition, when the resistance is at a certain point, it will also turn on a "low fuel" light on some vehicles.
However if this float gets stuck to the bottom of the tank or a leak fills up the float making it sink to the bottom of the tank, thus always indicating 'E' for empty.........................sodeep

1 got 1994 saturn sl1 gas guage not working


The two most common things that cause this are a float in the gas tank or a wiring problem. The float may not be giving a proper signal to the the engine control module (ecm). The float is located in the gas tank and you need to remove the gas tank and fuel pump in order to get a good look at it.

What i would do first is check the resistance of the signal wire that goes from the float to the ecm. If it is at, or less than, .5 mill-amps then the wire is good and your float is not working properly.

1.floating gas hand 2.true amount of gas in tank.


If you mean that the gas gauge is floating and you do not know the amount of gas in the tank, then the most common cause for this is the fuel level sensor in the tank. The fule tank would need to be removed to replace it.- Tech jk
