SOURCE: Fuel gauge acting up!

Check the ground wire for the guage..sounds like a grounding problem...hey some of us use the tripmeter/odometer to guage our fuel...so do'nt worry about this too much.......Good Luck to you friend....Tim

SOURCE: my fuel gauge indicator stays

You problem could be the gauge or the float. Simply because the float moves does not mean it's sending the correct signal to the gauge. If you will contact me directly as [email protected], I will send you information on how the gauge works and how to check it. Since you didn't mention what year and model bike, my information is probably for an earlier model but the principle of operation is still the same. I think it will help you determine what and where the problem is.

Good Luck
Steve

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

The fuel sending unit has a rhetrostat its a variable resitor ..As fuel is added the fuel lever mover along the rhetrostat and gives resitor signal to the fuel guage, the fuel gauge interpets this as level indicators to show on the gas tank.

89 jeep Grand Wagoneer fuel gauge not reading.


Did the mechanic use an OEM replacement unit or an after-market unit? I think the original unit has a damping circuit to prevent immediate response when accelerating/stopping/cornering; the needle reacts slowly to changes in fuel level. If the new unit shows an immediate transient response, but settles back down to the actual fuel level, I'd just live with it.

Gas gauge reads full all the time


hello, it sounds like it has something to do with your fuel sending unit located inside your gas tank,on the sending unit it has a float arm that reads the fuel level, some times that float arm gets jammed and wont show your actual fuel level,to fix this with your gas tank at least half full use a rubber mallet or any other object that wont damage the tank and with your key in the start position with the car not running but reading your gages hit the gas tank not to hard but hard enough to lodge the float arm loose, if this is unsuccessful then it will probably be a bad fuel sender location sensor located on the actual fuel sender if that's the case you'll need a new fuel sender. good luck and please send me a update or any questions let me know.

Gas gage does not work


I had the exact same problem. It ended up being the float inside the tank. The float was around $90 but 2-3 weeks later I ended up replacing the whole fuel unit which came with a new float attached. I should have just replaced the whole unit when I replaced the float. If you still have the original fuel unit, you might want to consider just replacing the whole unit. I hope you find this helpfull.
