Recommended Posts

Replaced both fuel pumps and sending units in the tanks now the gas gauge is not working right. Any ideas?

Didn't put the float on the arm in the tank, connectors damaged or not fully inserted, wiring problem, incorrect pump installed, faulty pump installed.

 

Maybe describe how it is not working right?

Is that movement part of the initial gauge test sweep, or after that?

 

Anyway, only thing I can suggest is using a scanner to see if the problem is before the bcm or after by reading what the computer thinks the fuel levels are.  But most likely, assuming the system was working before the old pumps failed, that the problem is before the bcm, perhaps a fuse blew, or it's a problem at the pumps themselves (bad sender, or connector/wiring problem there).
