    Fuel Gauge Problem

    I have a 99 GTX Limited. When I purchased it the gas gauge wasn't working. I replaced the float and did the fuse bypass fix posted earlier. When I put it back together it read "low fuel". I can short out the leads and it shows full. I thought it must be the circuit board on the fuel baffle so I replaced the fuel baffle with a brand new one. After putting it back together it still reads low fuel even though it has a half tank. Any idea of what could be the problem or are there any other tests I can run?

    Thanks for any help.

    Harold, welcome to the baords...

    When you pulled the baffle, did you find the float and 2 magnets?

    If not, look in the tank. usually what happen on the 99 fuel system is that the bottom of the baffle would pop off, thus the float comes out. Once it is out, the 2 magnets stick together and it will read LOW FUEL even when full....

    Also, when you pulled the baffle, you didn't move the tank did you? because you can get the unit out laying the steering assemble down....

    Once nice thing about the 3 seaters, just remove the bucket in the glove box by taking out the 4 retailer clips that hold the bucket in. just below, you will see the sending unit with access to pull it out.
