Chances are the gauge sending unit was either damaged or not plugged in after the install of the pump. It's mounted on the pump assembly and likely has its own electrical connector that needs to be plugged in.

Fuel Gauge 1999-2003 GM Vehicles


If your fuel gauge in your 1999-2002 GM vehicle is not working properly, the fault is most likely the fuel gauge sending unit in the tank. The fuel pump and sending unit are one unit so the entire assembly needs to be changed. The problem is almost never the actual gauge in the instrument cluster.

2004 ford explorer fuel gauge fuse


If your fuel gauge isn't working , it's not a fuse ! The gauge or the sending unit in the fuel tank is bad . If you had other thing's not working in the instrument cluster I would say probably a fuse. There is not a fuse just for the fuel gauge .

Fuel gauge 2005 tahoe


9 times out of 10 it is a bad sender at the fuel pump . The pump and sender are built as one . It requires a new fuel pump . Ive had this happen before so my remedy until i could afford the new pump was to use the trip set on my odometer. I would fill it up and set the trip to 0 and once it hit 250 miles i would fill it up again . But that wont fix your problem , just get you by. It will need a new fuel pump and sender Airtex Electric Fuel Pump Assembly

I changed the fuel pump in my 2002 kia rio but the gas gage still dont work


Gas gauge has nothing to do with fuel pump. possible causes:

1. Low fuel in tank, get some more fuel
2. Rat chewed the fuel gauge wire or its socket is loose
3. gauge itself is faulty

Change the fuel pump gas gauge was working before after changing the fuel pump gauge stop working


i presume it was an all in one set up, pump and gauge, check you have the gauge adjusted to the right setting and plugged in around the fuel pump.
