Hi Troy, you could have a faulty sending unit or guage, there could be a problem with your wiring. On models with the fuel gauge posing as a left hand fuel cap the gauge is a press fit do not try to unscrew it, simply ample force lift up in a rocking motion to remove gauge. Disconnect wires to the gauge and with a set of positive and negative jumpers from the battery connect the positive jumper and flash the negative, gauge should peg full, if not replace gauge. With a test light check for power to the sending unit, then remove the sending unit and manually operate the float arm slowly with the correct wiring hooked up to the fuel gauge and sending unit and the ignition on, the gauge should respond accordingly if not replace the float arm assembly. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website below and good luck.

SOURCE: Fuel Gauge reads empty all the time

The circuit for a fuel gauge is: battery positive through the gauge resistor to the sending unit to the fuel tank(sheet metal) to the chassis to the battery negative. If you didn't remove the sending unit the most likely problem is the fuel tank is not grounded to the frame. Scrape some paint at the rear mounting bolt where you can't see it and re-tighten the bolt. If you removed the sending unit, check the cork gasket. There should be a staple in it that is the connection to the sheet metal. No kidding.

SOURCE: i need to remove the fuel tank on my 2006 harley davidson

I haven't worked on a bike as new as yours but your bike is one of the Dyna series of motorcycles that Harley makes. Most Dyna's have one piece tanks instead of the twin tanks like on a Softail series bike.

To get the tank off, first remove the seat. Disconnect the fuel lines and drain the fuel from the tank. Disconnect the fuel "crossover" hose at the front of the tank. Disconnect any wires going to fuel gauges and fuel pumps in the tank. Now, take the nut off the top of the dash and remove it. There should be three bolts that hold the instrument cluster on, remove them. Unplug the connectors under the instrument cluster, usually three of those. Now, there is one bolt at the front of the tank and possibly two at the rear. Lift the tank off the frame.

Taking the tank off is not that difficult of a problem. Just watch what you're doing and don't force anything. If something won't come off, look for anonother bolt somewhere. Usually, the wiring connectors are idiot proof in that they will only connect with the correct mating plug and you can't connect them in the wrong way.

If the bike per chance has split tanks, you won't have to take the instrument panel off the frame, just the dash cover. The tanks have two bolts in the front and one bolt in the rear of each tank, one on either side of the frame.

Now, keep in mind that I told you that I haven't worked on your particular model of bike doing this particular job. But, Harley usually doesn't change much on their bikes. View the information I gave you here a "general guidelines". Use your head and you'll be using the best tool you've got. No problem.

Fuel gauge doesn t work


Most of the time it is the sending unit in the fuel tank.Remove the connection from the fuel tank,and using a test light,test the wires that you removed from the fuel tank. Clip the alligator clip on the test light to a good known ground,and use the probe on the test light to touch the terminals in the connector you unplugged.Make sure the ignition key is turned to the on position,right before start position.Have someone to watch the gauge.At this point the gauge should be showing past the full position.When touching the right terminal in the connector you removed from the tank,the fuel gauge should move down toward the empty mark.If this fuel gauge doe do this when you are testing it,then the gauge in the dash is good and the sending unit is bad.

Fuel gauge not working properly. Says fuel tank full when fuel tank empty


Could be 3 thing - the gauge on the dash, the wiring or the fuel level indicator in the tank. All three are not easily accessible - the best test would be to measure the voltage on the level sensor on the tank.

It usually means removing the fuel tank and start measuring. If its ok, supply voltage to the lead towards the fuel gauge. If the gauge doesn't move it's wiring or the fuel gauge itself.

Gas guage doesnt work


It sounds like a problem with the fuel gauge sender unit in the fuel tank which has worn out and gone open circuit and needs replacing. Access to the unit is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring connector and any hoses and then remove the securing screws. Replacement is done by reversing procedure.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1995 Nissan PU


see instructions from AutoZone:
The fuel pump assembly is located in the fuel tank. Refer to the fuel tank assembly illustrations in this section. On most applications, the fuel tank must be lowered to remove the fuel pump assembly. The fuel pump assembly is cooled by the fuel in the tank.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figure 1
  1. Before disconnecting the fuel lines or any of the fuel system components, release the fuel system pressure as described previously in this section. Releasing system pressure is a very important step for the correct removal of the electric fuel pump.




0900c1528018d240.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: Internal view of the electric fuel pump
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Unfasten the fuel pump assembly electrical connector and remove the fuel tank inspection cover.

If the truck has no fuel tank inspection cover, the fuel tank must be lowered or removed to gain access to the in-tank fuel pump.
  1. Disconnect the fuel outlet and return hoses. Remove the fuel tank assembly, if necessary.
  2. Remove the ring retaining bolts and the O-ring, then lift the fuel pump assembly from the fuel tank. Plug the opening with a clean rag to prevent dirt from entering the system.

When removing or installing the fuel pump assembly, be careful not to damage or deform it. Always install a new O-ring.
To install:
  1. Install the fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank with a new O-ring. Install the ring retaining bolts. Install the fuel tank if removed.
  2. Reconnect the fuel lines and fasten the electrical connection.
  3. Connect the battery cable, then start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

The "Check Engine Light'' may stay on after installation is completed. If so, the trouble code in the control unit's memory must be erased. To erase the code, disconnect the battery cable for 10 seconds, then reconnect it a verify that the light is extinguished.

TESTING


See Figures 2 and 3
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure, as described previously in this section.
  2. Disconnect the fuel inlet hose at the electro injection unit.

0900c1528018d242.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 3: Testing fuel system pressure using a gauge and a "T'' fitting
  1. Install a fuel pressure gauge.
  2. Start the engine and check the fuel line for leakage.
  3. Read the pressure on the pressure gauge. The gauge should read approximately 36.3 psi (250 kPa).
  4. Relieve the fuel system pressure again.
  5. Remove the pressure gauge from the fuel line and reconnect the fuel inlet hose.

Fuel gauge problem


Got the same problem, when empty fuel gauge shows full but fuel indicator light lights on.
Problem was the gauge itself and replaced by a second hand one.
How to remove: Remove the front glass (8 screws), remove the black frame (free), pull out both gauges (Fuel & Temp) they come togheter with their frame using a little screewdriver under their corners. Push the new unit in.That's it. Michel
