You are watching: 2001 ford taurus fuel gauge stuck on full


I recently purchased mine 2003 Taurus. Originally the fuel gauge was stuck top top full and also then after several days it would certainly drop to virtually empty. The last 3 weeks, it has actually just stayed past the full mark. All i can discover is talking about a sensor behind the radio when this happens. My vehicle does not use flex fuel. How can I deal with this? many thanks in advance for all your assist on this.

Thank friend UKfordguy. Feather into how to change this, it doesn"t look like basic or cheap project to fix. I am not a mechanic. Having to reduced the tank, disconect a many hoses and also clamps. Undo the pump in the tank to get to the sending unit. Placed it earlier together and also then raise the tank ago up is not straightforward for one person. Is there an easier means to get to this and adjust it out?

Before also thinking about dropping the tank and also replacing the sending unit, i would execute some troubleshooting. First, use a great scan tool, prefer Forscan with an ELM327 and also see what the cluster thinks the FLI% (fuel level input %) is, and compare come the fuel gauge reading. Likewise look for any kind of network (U series) codes present. Friend can likewise locate the harness for the sender / pump (it comes up right into the trunk), and also check the resistance of the sender and see if that matches with the (roughly) well-known amount of fuel in the tank. The course, to carry out this you require wiring diagrams to determine the shade codes and a practically connector for measuring sender ohms.
