Question about 2003 Yamaha Road Star Silverado

1 Answer

Fuel gauge not working

I have 2003 Yamaha Silverado SE and the fuel gauge no longer works. When I filled up the tank on the last trip I took, the fuel gauge only showed about 1/2 to 3/4 full and it took a while for the low fuel indicator lamp to stop blinking. By the end of my trip, the gauge would not reflect any fuel in the tank and the light stopped blinking altogether.
I rode from Minneapolis to Western Massachusetts and back on this trip and I encountered a lot of rain, some frost, heavy winds and the temperatures were anywhere from 34 to 60 degrees.
Could any of these things have contributed to this failure?

Hi, 94CountryBoy and the usual suspects are:
1. Blown instrument fuse.
2. Faulty sending unit.
3. Faulty wiring between sending unit and gauge.
4. Faulty ground or power connection.
5. Bad fuel gauge.

Check resistance of fuel sensor,connector should be under seat at rear of tank. If open sensor may be bad.Check the connector for good contact.Check with a good dealer about problem ,most will give you some help if you buy your parts from them.

My fuel gage on my 2003 silverado bike does not work. What could the problem be?


check the connections on the gauge or the connections on the fuel tank as these might be off or corroded if this is not it check your fuses or it just might be a defective ,you might have to get it checked by a auto electrician cheers

Fuel gauge "freezed"


When checking fuel level you check resistance, the resistance changes with fuel level. You may have burned out your sensor.

I own a 2003 chevy silverado diesel dullay 4x4 and none of the controls work for the passenger side window, I need a wiring diagram.


Hi I have a 4x4 2003 chevy 3500 silverado dually with dual tanks
rear tank stoped pumping into front tank and was full . I siphoned the fuel out of rear tank and fuel gauge reads 9/16 full . is there a way to reset the fuel sending units so they can calculate the fuel readings. I always filled the two tanks with the same amount of fuel
until now ? I'm thinking there is a inkine fuel pump

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm
