Low fuel light on gauge doesnt work


lamp burned out, ?
but does the fuel guage work 100%
and at what tank level do you expect the lamp to come on.?
did you read the FSM on this, its covered
or alldata.com?
free.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

on this car, the PCM reads the fuel level then sets the fuel guage
and if the level (voltage from tank sender) is below a specific
voltage , it glows the lamp, low fuel
so if the fuel guage works, and the lamp is dead, the lamp is burned out. (or conn. bad to it)

Fuel gauage not reading on 2005 kia sedona


the fuel sender in the tank is probably the problem, they do wear out quick on KIA some models.

GAS GAGE WANT STOP READING EMPTY WHEN GAS IS IN IT


To confirm if the fault is with the Rheostat float within the fuel tank or the fuel guage in the dashbboard, you can remove the wiring to the fuel tank float. If the guage reading changes- to full- then the guage is good and the fault can be a jammed rheostat which can be removed from the tank and replaced after draining the tank. The guage can be tested on the outside with a ground wiring to the plate of the fittings and as the float is moved the guage must show a change in reading. if not the voltage must be measured to confirm the working of the guage.

Fuel guage reading was erratic. Replaced fuel pump and sensor..fuel guage then read a constant 1/4 tank lower than it actually was. Mechanic checked and said it was wired wrong...fuel guage then read...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You may have a bad sending unit. It could also be a defective dash voltage regulator, lost ground at sending unit, break in the wire at the dash harness too. It can be anyone of these to be honest.

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.

2004 mazda 6 with 3.0l V6..WHen the gas guage falls below a quarter tank the car shutters really bad getting on and off the interstate. Almost as if no gas is getting pushed to the engine. Dealer ship said...


Find out how many gallons your fuel tank holds. Once it falls below a 1/4 tank and starts to shutter. Proceed to the nearest gas station and fill up. If you fill it up with 12 gallons and your tank holds 12 gallons then your fuel gauge is off. So it should be reading empty instead a 1/4 tank.

Gas Gauge not reading correctly


The most likely culprit is the sending unit in the tank. They are relatively easy to change, as long as you don't have much fuel in the tank. It's a mechanical unit that has a float that raises and lowers with the fuel level, however with age, the floats can develop leaks and no longer float, of the electronic portion of the unit can go bad and not register the proper level. They are replaced and an entire unit, so it doesn't matter which happened, you will need to change the fuel tank sending unit.

Fuel guage reads 1/4 at all times even when full. How do I repair


1.If the needle on the guage is stuck. you can try tapping the guage to see if the needle moves or turn the ignition on and off a few times to see if you can get it to move. If the guage drops to empty when you turn off the ignition you know that its not the guage. (note that the guage does not drop to zero when ignition is off with all cars of this age).

2. The problem could be with the sensor in the fuel tank itself. Rocking the vehicle up and down from the rear (you will need help doing this) may free the sensor level indicator ball in the tank.
