Either the sensor is broken or Your gaug on the dash is not working.
Your fuel sending unit is not giving the correct reading to your gauge
Perhaps there is an insufficient gas level in the tank?
Car no go.
i have a 1990 ford ranger and my fule gauge always reads full, why?
Bad gauge Bad float in tank
it might be a fuse
its a transistor located behind the cluster panel.usually cost 45 dollars from nissan......symptons are usually empty fuel reading and temp reading are nil. If fuel gauge goes from empty to full can be ground wire problems.
no power at the sending unit.
This is a common malfunction that happens when the vehicle gas tank runs out of fuel.
There is none. But you can try disconnecting the wiring attached to the fuel sending unit and look at the fuel gauge. If it is giving you an empty reading, the fuel gauge is faulty and should be replaced.
The fuel gauge will no longer give an accurate reading.
Either your temperature gauge is reading too hot , your oil pressure is too low , or your gas gauge is at or near empty
Float could be stuck in the tank or the ground wire on the tank is broke.
if its computer orientated i would disconect the battery for 20 minutes
Inside. You should always place your rain gauge outdoor in a nice open space where there is nothing to hinder the rain falling directly into the gauge. Mount the gauge vertically and level, and check and empty it after every rain fall.
Then fix it
This is usually caused by either the sender in the tank is bad and should be replaced, or the gauge is not reading correctly and needs to be repaired or replaced.
there is a sensor inside the gas tank. if you have the GM dealer replace it.. its about $500.00.
Either your oil pressure gauge is reading low , your engine temperature gauge is reading high , or your fuel gauge is reading low so your almost out of gas
The way to test the gauge is to unhook the wires to the sender and the gauge should read empty. Now, ground the sensor wire and the gauge should go all the way past the full level. If this happens your wiring and gauge are fine.
I was having the same problem with my 99 explorer. What I discovered was that the overflow tank for the radiator was empty and was causing a false reading by the temp gauge.
That depends entirely on the vehicle and on how accurate the gauge is.
the float could stick
