    Vx fuel gauge always empty

    Got an issue with my fuel gauge in a 2002 VX II Acclaim Sedan, the needle always shows empty and the DTE varies between 40-50kms. Any advice on how to diagnose it the fault is in the sender or cluster? Is there anywhere to check the resistance of the sender without dropping the tank or ripping...

    Fuel Gauge not working after going over bumps

    I had half a tank of fuel then I drove on a dirt road. At the end of the road I noticed the gauge was all the way down and the fuel light came on. There are no leaks and the car still drives but Im not sure what might have come loose on that bloody road.

    VT fuel gauge stuck after fuel pump replacement

    I was having problems with my fuel gauge showing empty when I still had some 30L in the tank. It wasn't a problem with the fuel gauge itself because the computer was coinciding with the fuel gauge in terms of "kms to go till empty". I replaced the fuel pump and sender assembly with a brand...

    Dodgy fuel guage sender on VS wagon

    The fuel gauge works reliably most of the time. Sometimes though, it drops to zero and the "fuel empty" warning flashes and beeps. Later in the day, when i start the car, it works fine again. Its not a sticky gauge, and if the sender is stuffed, why would it work most of the time? Could it be a...

    How much fuel used when gauge on empty?

    Hi all, On earlier Commodores (VT - VY), if the fuel gauge was sitting on empty, the tank would always take 60L or so to fill. I'm finding that on the VE Berlina I'm putting in 70L or so. I was wondering if my gauge is faulty - a dealer said it should be taking 62L, but at the same time...
