First we would need to know what make , model and year vehicle ? Going to say it's not a fuse anyway , instrument cluster has main battery voltage inputs that would power the fuel gauge ,not a fuse just for the fuel gauge. Most cars the fuel tank sending unit inside the fuel tank would most likely be the problem or the gauge it self is bad .

Is there a fuse or relay for the fuel gauge,does the gauge share a fuse with other electrical consumers ?


should be a fuse in fuse panel for all gauges, not one per gauge.. there is a fuel pump relay on most fuel injection cars but that gives fuel pump power . most of the time if fuel gauge is not working its the sending unit inside the tank ,wich if your in there might as well change fuel pump to.

The computer does a sweep test everytime it senses power. Check it next time you turn the key to run the gages do a little self test. However the fuse and gage won't be your problem. They are very bad for the fuel level sensor in the tank getting corrupted or dirty and doesn't read properly. You can try to add port fuel injector cleaner to the tank, but problem will usually reoccur. You will need the fuel tank dropped and the level sensor replaced.
