I have a 2005 Envoy, the fuel gauge does not work when full, always reads empty. The stereo only works when it is over 100 degrees and dry outside, the warning sounds (i.e. seatbelt, lights etc) are not audible anymore, the speedometer does not work at times, the oil and battery gauge do not work, always on one end or the other and the dashboard lights went out on one side. ARGHHHH.

Here we go.....I have a 99 Ford Super Duty DRW w/7.3 and about 3 years ago my fuel gauge stopped working (reads full) after backing over a curb I noticed that after that it reads full all the time.

The instrument cluster on my 2003 Chevy Cavalier has been gradualy going out over the past year. first the temp gauge stopped working, then the speedo would read higher than actual speed and now it is dead and now the tac is dead too. The fuel gauge was the only thing working for the longest time and now it is dead too. Now that the fuel gauge is dead, i cannot put gas in the car even when it is empty. it spits it back out like it's full. The gass backflow problem should be caused by the vent va

I took my 1989 Dodge Ram into a shop because the diesel fuel was leaking, ended up having to pay for a fuel injector pump. Now three of the four gauges on the dash do not work (fuel, oil pressure and temperature...they all read off the scale "high"). The repair shop also did work on the brake light switch, under the dash. The repair shop worked on the truck trying to find the problem for over 4 hours. They don't know what to do.


If they can't fined anything wrong with the car itself the problem might be in the sensors. IDK what kind they use in that car, but the mechanic might not have the electronic equipment to diagnose, check, or solve the problem. They may have been dama ... 1989 Dodge Ram D-Series Pickups

I have recently been given a 93 chrysler new yorker to drive to and from work. It sat for 1.5 yrs because the fuel pump went out. Well, the fuel pump was replaced, and the oil was changed (black).

2001 Taurus Flex Fuel vehicle gas gauge stays on full constantly. I monitor the trip mileage so as not to run out. One day I noticed it worked properly, then next day it read full again. I tapped on the dash several times thinking it was maybe stuck, but it did not change. It stays on full even when key is switched off. Checked fuses, none bad. I am hoping for a solution where I do not have to drop the tank. I also suspect car may have been in a minor front end collision, but not sure.


Hi, the problem you are having is going to be with the fuel sendor unit in the tank as the fuel gauge will work even when the ignition is switched off. So the problem is more than likely the sendor on the top of the tank it has more than likely got j ... 2001 Ford Taurus

I have a 2004 Impala SS and yesterday the fuel gauge started reading weird. It does not go back down to empty when turned off like it is stuck and when started goes way up past the full line when I know it is not full.
