How do you fix a broken gas gauge with a gas light that stays on most of the time even when tank is full?
Sounds like you will have to replace the sending unit that is in the gas tank with the fuel pump. This is the electrical unit that has the float on it. When you fill your tank the float moves and tells your gauge where the level is at.
You could aways hope that maybe the plug is loose at the tank but unless someone messed with it and broke the plug clips in the past that is unlikely. If you have over 100,000 miles and decide to replace it you should go ahead and replace the fuel pump too while your in there to keep from having to do it down the road later on. Hope this helps.

What could be the problem when the dome light for a 1995 GMC Sonoma stays on even when truck is off?
pull the gauge cluster and check to make sure all the wires are hooked up. if not it will probably be the sending unit or even problems with the fuel pump. pull the gauge cluster and check to make sure all the wires are hooked up. if not it will probably be the sending unit or even problems with the fuel pump.
Would the temperature sensor cause the coolant temperature dial to always stay in the middle even with the engine cold and where is it located on a 1996 Mitsubishi Galant?
Unplug the coolant temp sensor and check what the gauge says...If it falls to cold, then the sensor is at fault. If it stays, then the gauge is either faulty or the contact points on the back of the gauges need to be cleaned...

Have you ever heard the expression "A family who's eats together stays together"? Well, that is true, but and emotionally broken up family means that the family has grown apart, fights all the time, doesn't get along. It doesn't just take a toll on the family, it takes a toll on the family members. No one wants a broken home. Even if they say they do.
The dome light in my Impreza has a three way switch that in the full rear position remains off even with the doors open. In the middle position it is on auto so that when a door is opened it comes on. And in the full forward position it stays on constantly. If yours has a switch you might try moving it to the middle position or the full rear position per your preference.
