Answer Replace it. Just replaced mine as it was always on "Full" or above. Seems to be OK now. Aussie Bill.

Fair enough but I'd suggest seeing if the fault is elsewhere first, such as a poor electrical connection on the supply or earth side of the sender or gauge. If these are OK... establish if it is the sender on the tank, or the gauge itself, that has failed.

First you have to determine if the problem is the gauge in the dash, a bad fuel level sending unit, or a wiring problem. You'll need a digital ohm meter and a wiring diagram to check it out. If you're sure it's the dash gauge and the gauge is part of the instrument cluster, you can take it to a local speedometer repair shop and they can fix it. Or, you can look on the internet for speedometer/instrument repair shops. Rick I'm a retired ASE Master/L-1 Technician. I still keep current with the latest automotive technology.

The problem is most likely the sending unit, not the gauge itself. The sending unit would have to be replaced.

I have a 1988 ford ranger 2.9L V6. the speedo stops at 85 but ive had it pegged all the way to the bottom. Judging by the distances between the speeds on the gauge i would say it was about 104 or 105 mph.

The fuel gauge, temp gauge, and starter relay are on the same fuse (instrument panel). Does the car start? if the car starts then it is the module on the back of the instrument panel. it has 3 wires ( black, blue and yellow). once changed the guages would work fine.

THere are 2. one for the gauge, and one that reads for the fan. the gauge one is located by the firewall, while the other is near the coolant thermostat housing.
