Hey, guys i got a problem with my gas meter on my speedometer, I changed the speedometer thinking the gas meter was busted than i changed the sending unit but still the meter doesnt move. Any advice? on what i can do to read how much gas i got please help!! ive been driving without reading gas for the past 4 years. and yeas ive been strainded multiple times
IIRC? so what should i do cause my the temp works perfectly
IIRC, If I Recall
You said that you relocated the temp gauge using a aftermarket gauge, right? The one next to the gas gauge doesn't work, correct? That is the one I'm referring to. Both the gas and temp gauge in the speedo cluster are tied to together, I think if there is no power to the temp gauge, the gas gauge won't work either. At least that's how my 74 works.
It's a Jeep Thing, Chrysler Doesn't Understand!
Not how it works. The fuel gauge gets 12 volts first and then feeds voltage over to the temp gauge. The fuel gauge will work regardless of whether or not the temp gauge is present. The problem could be one of several things. You will need to check the following things to narrow it down.
1. Check you are getting 12 volts at the red wire connected to the fuel gauge. (I terminal)
2. Check that the speedometer housing has a good connection to ground.
3. Check that the gas tank sending unit has a good connection to ground.
4. Check that the resistance on the pink wire connected to the fuel gauge is appropriate for the amount of fuel in the tank. 10 ohms full, 73 ohms empty. (S terminal)
If that all checks out then it would be a problem with the gauge not grounded to the speedometer housing or the gauge itself.
