Fuel Gauge

Hey, I have yet to track down the cause of it but I wanted to post just incase this has happend to some of you so I could save myself some time. For some odd reason every so often my Fuel gauge will drop to empty and my message center will display Low Fuel. I cant figure out what is causing it and it doesnt seem to be affecting anything but it sure is annoying. Hope you guys can help. Thanks

Well im under a 30 day dealer warrenty on top of my GM Protection Plan (36/24) so I should be alright. Unless it messes up something else I may just leave it alone. I love my truck. Feels good going down the road :)

I got my truck used from the dealer last Sept. It came with a 90 day 3000 mile warrenty. I noticed the problem after about 2 days, but the dealer said they could never get it to repeat the problem. I took it to them about 5 times. It wasn't until I started coming to these boards that I found out that alot of nbs trucks have the same problem. It's never caused a problem other than the gauge dropping to "E" for a few minutes.

my dad's sierra has the SAME problem. When it's > than 1/2 full it's always at zero/bobbing all over the place. Took it too the dealer and yea they have to replace the whole thing, like $500 :flame:

That just happened to my 2000 lik 2 months ago. Don't let them replace just the sending unit. On 00' and up GM told me you have to replace the whole pump. Something to do with the sending units having falty connection to the pump. Really easy to fix though.
