Remove the No. 1 BACK UP (7.5 A) fuse from the under-dash fuse/relay box for at least 10 seconds, then reinstall it.
Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Check that the pointer of the fuel gauge indicates ‘‘F'' with the float at F.
If the pointer of the fuel gauge does not indicate ‘‘F'', replace the gauge assembly.
If the gauge is OK, the test is complete.
The pointer of the fuel gauge returns to the bottom of the gauge dial when the ignition switch is to LOCK (0), regardless of the fuel level.
Remove the No. 1 BACK UP (7.5 A) fuse from the under-dash fuse/relay box for at least 10 seconds after completing troubleshooting, otherwise it may take up to 20 minutes for the fuel gauge to indicate the correct fuel level.
