fuel gage

I bought a 2000 cherokee last fall with 83,000 on it. The fuel gage will sometimes work and sometimes not. It will never read full at all, just empty most of the time. Is there any chance it could be a fuse or could it be something else. Also, do I have to go to a dealer to have an extra key made? I only have one and the manual says something about a chip or something in it?

First of all just so you know its a xj cherokee not a fullsize cherokee fyi. Deffinatly not a fuse, sounds like either a sending unit, the gauge, or the wiring. And third yeah probably do have to go to dealership to get a key made, chrysler started that chip in key stuff in like 95 i think, and its gonna be exspensive like $80 if i remember correctly.

Oops, not sure how I got that fsj on there and don't know how to change it. So is the sending unit a pricey fix? I also am in need of some new shocks, is there any recommendations? Its a nice, clean Jeep so probably no hard driving. I just want a smoother ride.

As mentioned could be a wiring problem, and since you have a 2000 thatīs very common case, search in the Tech section for "No bus" it would give you some guidance.
