The fuel control relay is mounted on the right fender, a foot aft of the battery. It is one of two cube-looking relays mounted there. It is controlled by the Electronic Engine control. Replacement is about $20.
Several things can cause the fuel gauge to stop working. 1.The sending unit in the fuel tank may be malfunctioning or broken. 2.There may be a broken, disconnected, or grounded wire going to the fuel pump/sending unit. 3. There may be a disconnected wire at the gauge cluster, or the gauge cluster itself may be malfunctioning.
A faulty fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank could cause that.
check ground on fuel tank
The gauge could be bad, the fuel gauge sending unit in the gas tank as part fo the fuel pump could be bad you could have a bad ground wire you could have a broken wire in the harness runnign from the fuel tank to the gauge.
You either have a bad connection or a abad sending unit. Check out the wire to the tank and connection at the sending unit . .
It is to prevent the fuel from sloshing back and forth. Fuel sloshing can cause the fuel gauge to be erratic.It is to prevent the fuel from sloshing back and forth. Fuel sloshing can cause the fuel gauge to be erratic.
Bad gauge Bad float in tank
It is in the fuel tank attached to the fuel pump. Remove the fuel tank , replace the unit and reinstall.
fuel level sensor located in the top of the fuel tank, can be purchased seperatly from gm
bad ground or float stuck 2 possibilities i can think of
Could be a fuse, could be the fuel pump relay.
either the fuel gauge needs replacing or the fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank is stuck
The cause of the faulty fuel gauge is probably the fuel gauge sending unit located inside the fuel tank. Replacing the sending unit would require dropping the fuel tank.
Fuel [Petrol] Gauges that Fail to WorkAlthough there could be one or more other causes for a fuel/Petrol gauge to fail to work, the answer is YES, a "blown" fuse could cause the gauge to not work.
maybe fuse or the sending unit. hope that helps
Several things can cause your fuel gauge not to work. The most common cause is a bad ground wire. A malfunctioning float in the fuel tank can also cause the problem.
No, you installing a fuel pump has nothing to do with the fuel gauge
Several things can cause the gas gauge to not work. Check the fuel gauge fuse, the wiring, the gauge, and the fuel sending unit to find the problem.
Bad fuse - I believe it is fuse # 17 - 15 amp for the fuel gauge on your 1994 Explorer bad sending unit - it's combined with your fuel pump inside the fuel tank bad wiring connection possibly the gauge itself
try changing the fuel filter
No, two separate circuits.
The fuel cap has no effect on the fuel gauge and there is no "reset" for this. More than likely the problem is with fuel sending unit in the tank. A less likely cause is incorrect levels of additives in fuel, this can cause the gauge to flucuate erratically.
It COULD be the fuel filter or the fuel pump. If you haven't replaced the fuel filter, try that. A fuel pressure gauge will tell you if you are losing fuel pressure.
Most vehicles have one fuse that protects all the gauges so if the fuel gauge is the only one not working, the fuse is probably okay. Most causes for a inop fuel gauge is a faulty fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank.
You need a new fuel pump
