Fuel gauge testing?
Hey guys what are the best steps to determine why my fuel gauge is not working? Is there a fuse I should check? Is there a sensor that is replaceable?

Use a paperclip, or whatever you can find, to short the wires that normally connect the the tank. The gauge should read full with these wires connected. Next would be to check the sending unit (baffle) with a multimeter - should read 90 when empty and zero when full. 90 when full means that your magnets have fallen out or the float doesn't float anymore. Open or infinite resistance most likely means that the internal fuse has blown or rotted. There is a thread pinned to the top of this forum about bypassing this fuse.
