Its a bad ground, but its easy to fix. By the fuse block/hood open latch (in side the car) there is a bundle of wire, find the light blue wire, cut it and connect each end to the car body. I did mine and it works. But quarter tank is now empty, rpm guage is fine... Hey check out www.lincolnsonline.com and go to the tech part, and see "dash ground fix" that's how i learned this very helpfull tip.
Look for a bad grounding wire. If the fule gauge sending unti is properly gounded, it should send the signal to the fuel gauge, make sure the fuel gauge is grounded. You may have a bad fuel gauge.
most failures lead to the fuel sending unit inside fuel tank.and yes the tank must come out
Fuel tank sending unit. Fuse.
In most cases it is the sending unit in the fuel tank that is faulty. Disconnect the wire at the fuel tank and ground that wire, turn the key on and see if the fuel gauge goes to the full mark. If it does the sending unit has failed. The float is also known to fail and sink to the bottom.
The fuel level sensor is shorted or a wire is shorted.
Typically when a fuel gauge reads incorrectly it is the fuel sending unit in the fuel tank.In order to determine where the problem really is accessing the fuel sending unit on newer cars is fairly easy.Most have a access area either from removing the bottom of the back seat or from the trunk area under the carpet.In short if the fuel sending signal wire is grounded it should make the gauge either go back to empty or to the full mark IF it is not working properly.Just a simple check to verify if the part above is defective,or possibly your gauge itself has a electrical issue.I just recently fixed a exact issue as I have done before gauge read full and already knew the problem.
car may turn over but not start; fuel gauge might be off; car will run ragged with little power
If you really want to fix it, then you will have to drop the fuel tank and remove the sensor, go from there. You can check the float while it is your hand, just plug the wire harness in, move it up and down and have someone check the gauge. Might also be the gauge needle in the dash. You will find out this way.
Sounds like the charging system has failed. Have the system tested by your local auto parts store, they will do this for no cost.
I would suspect a thermostat stuck open.
It is likely that your fuel sending unit is in need of replacement. It is located in the fuel tank. Some vehicle have a cover that can be removed to access it, others need the fuel tank removed for replacement.
To the left and right below the fuel gauge almost in line with the 150 mph or 240 kph mark.
In any vehicle, when the radiator system is working correctly, the temperature gauge needle should be just below the half way mark when up to operating speed and temperature.
It is a marking gauge.
Fuel level sending unit mat be bad if it goes down other than it normally will as you burn the fuel up.
The mark viii headlights on the 93-96 model years suffer from a condition where the plastic in the headlight lenses cloud up over time usually replacement is the only option
Some gas gauges read overfull when you fill the gas tank because the needle goes past the full mark on the gauge. A bad sending unit,bad level sender, or stepping motor may be the cause of the gas gauge not working properly.
The fuel pam timing mark Scania 400 is on the engine.
One question.. does it read past the "Full" mark? Or does it move around a little? But... A common problem with the GM vans... There is a "Fuel Level Card" in the fuel pump located in the fuel tank.. The card send a signal to the ECM to the dashboard for your fuel gauge.. If you have over 100,000 miles on the van I would replace the whole fuel pump assembly (250 -300 bucks +labor) as the tank has to come out anyway.. remember Murphys law will come in if you just replace the fuel card.
A butt gauge is used to mark and cut the notches in doors and jambs to install butt hinges.
headlights and grille on a mk4 are oval and a mk5 are more angular
What was the repair? Sounds like they did more harm than good. Could be disconnected. If not, there may be a blown fuse or (worse) a blown resistor in the gauge.
