1995 Honda Civic fuel gauge stuck onfull.

1995 Honda Civic fuel gauge always shows full. I removed the instrument cluster and moved gauge down by hand. The needle moved back to full when the key was switched to acc position. I did not find any loose wiring or bad connections at the back of the instrument cluster.

My 1995 Honda civic dash cluster went out


sounds like your instrument cluster went bad, try a salvage yard and install a used cluster, normal price is $100.00 to $150.00, also might check on ebay

Fuel gauge is moving slowly to full


I'd use a couple of resistors representing full and empty. Take connector loose from fuel level sending unit at gas tank, two wires, use resistor between the proper two wires, turn key just to on, you shouldn't have to start it. If gage reacts properly to both resistors, I believe the problem is the sending unit in the gas tank. If it still doesn't function properly, have to check wiring circuits and instrument cluster. The resistor ohms, 16 ohm--and 158 ohms. These are just generic specs.
Some ford instrument clusters can do a self test. The only problem I have is, I don't which years this applies.
With the engine off, depress and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the key to the run position and hold until the gages sweep, within 5--8 seconds. Depress the reset button once to advance to each stage of the self test. Turn the ignition to the off position to exit self test. This test is w/o outside input, so if all gages sweep except the fuel gage, I suspect the instrument cluster has a problem. I'm not sure if your instrument cluster has the self test ability?

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue, and the fuel gauge needle is stuck behind the peg at the FULL mark. I noticed it after my battery went dead. And the temp gauge too. Both have spun backwards to the peg....


this sometimes happens under this condition.i assume you have tapped on the instrument face and they haven`t returned to normal position.take a magnet and place on the instrument face and move the magnet towards the low end of the gage the needle should move back to the normal position.

Well, theres a sending unit/float in the tank that sends a signal thru wires to your instrument cluster's fuel gauge. You should have an auto electric repairperson determine where your problem lies. It's not often the needle's just 'stuck' to where you could dislodge it. More often, it's pegged overfull or underempty-signaling a shorted component upstream of the gauge.

Similar problem and found the solution:
In the back of the gauge, where the 2 coils are located, there are very tiny copper wires which connect all the resistors/diodes. they each travel from within the coil and are soldered to 3 out of the 4 mounting pins. if any of these wires are shorting out or disconnected, the gauge will malfunction.

- take the gauge and flip upside down
- temp gauge has 1 resistor (blue) and 1 diode (copper)
- fuel gauge has 2 resistors, no diodes
- 1 wire should be attached to bottom mounting pin (letter E for EMPTY)
- 1 wire should be attached to pin holding both resistors (half tank)
- 1 wire should be attached to the stand-alone ground pin (no mounting bracket)

Hope that helps!

Fuel Gauge spun around in opposite direction. The electronic display still shows the mileage remaining. What could the problem be???


It will take about 30 min to fix. Well that's how long it took me to reapair my 2006 SL. First remove the 3 screws from the shroud around your column they are under your column. Make sure your column is extended and in its lowest position. Second remove the 3 trim pieces on top of the cluster by using a flat blade screwdriver be careful not to damage your dash. Third remove the single screw on top of the cluster and the two that are underneath. Fourth release the tabs that hold the bezel around your cluster. Fifth each lens can then be removed exposing the gauge face and needles. Sixth gently move the needle counter clockwise until it rest on top of the needle stop. Seventh try to remember how it all goes back together haha. No really it is a piece of cake 30 to 40 min versus the 2 hour quote from my local Nissan dealer.

Fuel gauge not working properly Hyundai Accent


The fuel gauge utilizes a voltage stabilizer located on the back of the instrument cluster. if it's faulty it could cause this problem. The other causes are a wire fault (short) between the gauge and the tank sending unit and the sending unit itself being corroded and stuck in the full position (the float assembly that is). One way to quickly isolate (and maybe eliminate) the problem is to get a used cluster from a wrecking yard and swap it out. If it works normally, there you go... if not you will need to access the tank sending unit (this usually, but not always, involves draining and dropping the tank to get to it. Some cars have an access panel in the body over the fuel tank for this purpose... look under the carpeting in the rear of the vehicle) Once you have access disconnect the power wire (usually red or with a red stripe), and with the key on, the gauge should drop to empty. If it doesn't, the problem is not the sending unit. Hope this helps...;-)

Fuel gauge needle way past full, holding temp needle down so I cannot read temp either! 2005 with no low beams. Could problem be related?


Most likely this is the common 03-05 Cavalier instrument cluster problem where the stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board go out. It can be fixed, check this page for more on how to get it taken care of - Cavalier fuel gauge broken
