You are watching: Ford ranger fuel gauge always reads full

I have actually a 2003 XLT v 3.0 Flex Fuel and also only 43,000 miles.My fuel gauge is currently reading full at all times now. That does not go come empty when I rotate the an essential off and also it stays on full when I understand it need to be at the very least a quarter of a tank lower.I"m really concerned the this might be a huge repair also though the truck only has actually 43,000 mile on it. I"ve only had actually it 4 months.Whats walk on ? Is this basic fix, a bad wire come look for, or something much more serious ?Please help.Thanks everyone.Gary

you have uncovered the divine Grail that trucks!! one the never needs gas!anyways, every levity aside, your swarm is more than likely the issue, for every little thing reason the needle is stuck. You might have the ability to smack the swarm close to the fuel gauge and totally free it up, or you may need to take the cluster out and also disassemble it...removing the cluster shouldn"t be too much of a hassle, just several panels and bezels have to be removed. Great luck and also let us recognize what girlfriend find.AJ

the other alternative that can be your concern is the to rise in the sender unit in the tank might be grounding on optimal after fill up. Take it the truck down a bumpy road and see if that fixes it. Or take it a rubber hammer and also whack the fuel tank a couple of times.Try this an initial before messing witht the clusterAJ

I seem to remember reading about testing fuel gauge. Something like grounding the end the gauge would certainly make it check out full. Possibly you have actually a cable shorted to ground.
