Hi Anonymous, check for broken or loose wires under gauge, then disconnect wires and remove gauge. With a set of jumper wires hooked up to the battery connect the positive lead to the fuel gage and flash the negative lead to the ground post on the gauge, if the needle pegs the gauge is probaly ok. if nothing happens you have a bad gauge and needs to be replaced. Then ckeck the wiring on the sending unit, if ok remove sending unit from fuel tank and connect it back up to the fuel gauge, use a test lite to make sure you have power to the gauge and sending unit with the ignition switch on. Manually raise and lower the float assembly and watch the gauge, if nothing happens you have a bad sending unit/float assembly and needs to be replaced. Good luck

Fuel gauge not working properly


Hi, Anonymous you could have a faulty sending unit or gauge, there could be a problem with your wiring. On models with the fuel gauge posing as a left-hand fuel cap the gauge is a press fit do not try to unscrew it, simply ample force lift up in a rocking motion to remove gauge. Disconnect wires to the gauge and with a set of positive and negative jumpers from the battery connect the positive jumper and flash the negative, gauge should peg full, if not replace the gauge. With a test light check for power to the sending unit, then remove the sending unit and manually operate the float arm slowly with the correct wiring hooked up to the fuel gauge and sending unit and the ignition on, the gauge should respond accordingly if not replace the float arm assembly. If your fuel gauge registers the incorrect amount of fuel in the tank you can try bending the float arm the necessary amount for a more accurate reading.

How to replace fuel gauge on 1984 Grand Marquis


Are you sure its not the fuel sending unit and not the fuel gauge itself.Because the sending unit controls the fuel gauge level and if the float gets stuck then the fuel gauge will not work.

How do you install a fuel gauge on a 2004 H-D fatboy


If the bike came with a fuel gauge, no problem. Just work the fuel gauge up out of the tank. It's held in by a rubber o-ring. The wires under it are very short so be careful. The sender unit is inside the tank. You'll have to determine which is the problem piece and replace it.

If your bike did not come with a fuel gauge, you'll have to purchase a left side fuel tank if that's the location of the original fuel gauges. I do not know where Harley puts the fuel gauges on the Softails. If they have a fuel gauge on them, they are fuel injected. I do not work on fuel injected bikes, carbs only. Sorry.

Good Luck
