2002 Bonneville My gas gauge wasn't working right


it may be that you didn't run out of fuel but the fuel pump quit-check the fuse-you more than likely need a new fuel pump-the fuel pump and the fuel level sensor are one unit in the fuel tank-cheers Denny

2002 chevolet cavalier no power to fuel pump or gauge


on driver's side, behind carpet where kick panel is, there is a green connector with several wires. check that the wires are not burned or connector is not melted. i found that the connector for the ground wire is melted and requires a splice around connector.

it may be due to a bad fual pump open the little door to the gas cap and put your ear up to the tank and have someone turn the ignition on and see if you hear the pump, if nothing it may be in your pump.

The humming noise is from the fual pump. I had to change out 3 pumps before one would work. Put a pressue gage on the fual line to the carb and it should stay at +20 lbs for at least 1/2 day. Most likely the fual lines are ok and so is the fual filter. It is a very dangerous job to change out a fuel tank pump. I always have a machanic to the job. Think it over, safety first! And if the machanic installs a faulty pump then he will install another new one at no charge. Good Luck
