Fuel gauge

Recommended Posts

I may have asked this before.

On my bought-new '92 XE coming up on 100k, the gas gauge can't seem to make up its mind, occasionally showing full when full, then empty a mile later, then up and down,

It could, of course, be the gauge or the sender, but the low fuel light never comes on.  It must use a different sender.

This is not serious, but I would like an easy solve if someone has it.

Thanks,

Me as well on my’91. I would love an easy fix. I have to use the OD to figure out how much fuel it has.

First thing I suggest would be to review this thread and see of you have similar symptoms, this may be your issue and fix...

I am sure nobody will be shocked at the news the gauge worked just fine all day yesterday.

I don't want to argue, but I do not consider pulling the instrument cluster are replacing the voltage regulator with one that needs soldering in  an easy fix.

I would undertake that only with a complete failure of the dash units.

Provided they're still available, the factory replacement voltage regulator is not a solder job. In the thread, I believe, that was a work around. However, considering the age of the vehicle and parts availability, that might be the only way..

 

When I had the fuel gauge failure, it also took out the temp gauge as well. Once I replaced the regulator, they both worked. This was also 7 years ago...

 

24866-54A00 is the Part number I bought. There are 2 different kinds if my memory is correct. It appears as though you can still find them in places. You can contact the dealer to see which one you need based on your VIN
