Fuel Gauge Not Working? Try This First....
Ok, we all know about the legendary Jeep fuel gauge. If yours doesn't work, try this first. Take apart the center of the dash and remove the gauge. Take some fine sandpaper and clean the contacts on the back of the gauge and on the circuit board that the gauge mounts to. After you clean them off, put the gauge back and then turn your ignition on. If it doesn't work, try cleaning them a little more, making sure you covered all the spots where the gauge contacts the circuit board. Then put the gauge back in again and see if that does it. I figure it's worth a try. It's easier than replacing the sending unit and cheaper than replacing the gauge.
