Question Odd? Electrical Issue?

First off, HORRAY for someone posting in the correct board!

So I was leaving work today and I turned the volume down on the stereo and all of a sudden...

...my fuel gauge drops to nothing. All the way red, blood red.

Now I know full well I have 3/4 tank of gas because I check it before I leave to go somewhere and when I arrive, and also numerous times in between to gauge my gas consumption given current driving conditions and how im driving.

Btw, 2001 TJ, 2.5.

So anyway, I stop at a light after looking out my mirror to see if Im losing fuel. Nothing. Then the needle shoots back up to normal.

Could I possibly have a short in the gauge or circuit?

Any clues?


cheers,

With all the rain and cold on the east coast, my first thought is some ice in the sending unit. I've had the same problem with the oil gauge in my F-150.

It's not that life is so short, it's that you're dead for so long.

ninja man...you sneaky bastarrrdo

i was just thinking that it was probobly from all the rain we've gotten. there hasnt been any freezing temps around here tho, so probobly no ice formation.

everything seems back to normal but i'm gonna check the wiring anyway.

thanks!
