    Just purchased my first Mustang and it's a '68 and noticed the fuel gauge isn't working. I pulled off the dash and it looked like all the wires were in tack but not too sure whats going on

    My 1965 Mustang Coupe has developed an intermittent electrical fault. When turning the ignition key so that the ALT light is illuminated, the fuel gauge needle rises as you'd expect. When the key is turned fully so the engine starts, sometimes the fuel gauge needle drops to zero. When this...

    Hey all, I took off my instrument cluster on my 65 to do some stuff with the heater. Prior to this the fuel gauge was working properly and so was the temp. gauge. I went to wire the instrument panel back up and when I turned the car on, the gas gauge and temp gauge needles began to rise and...

    Just wanted to go down the line here about my fuel gauge... I had replaced the float in the gas tank, voltage regulator, wires going to and from the gauge and even taken the gauge out, cleaned it and painted the needle to match the car! When I start the car, the needle in the fuel gauge does...

    Help me... just bought a 2001 Mustang GT. My problem is once the car gets down to 1/4 tank of fuel it falls on its face about 3000RPM. Now that being said the problem goes away once I fill it up with fuel. Do you think the float in the tank is getting stuck at 1/4 of fuel when its really empty...

    Hi, My 2005 V6 fuel gage just pinned itself to the right side. Added some gas and it went even further over to the right side of the gauge. It seems to be recieving information as to the supply, but will not go to the correct position. I don't need an instrument cluster do I? BTW - The temp...

    Okay so I just replaced the fuel pump. Car started and then shut off. It does the same thing it did before I replaced the fuel pump, now though the fuel gauge stays at half a tank even with the key off. Here is what the car does. Well it's act's a little different with the new pump. Symptoms...

    I have already posted an embarrassing amount of threads about this to no avail. Originally, my fuel gauge would go to full as soon as it got power, and then continue to rise depending on how hard I pressed the gas pedal (when started of course). Thinking that the "Constant Voltage Regulator" was...

    In my girlfriend's 98 mustang, when she is driving the fuel gauge never stays still. I think it is the anti-slosh screwing up, but I am not sure. When she drives uphill the needle dramatically rises, and when going downhill it fleets towards empty. Normally this would not bother me, but she...

    My V6 Mustang is having some issues starting, I was driving on the interstate when my Mustang decided to all of a sudden stop working, in fact when i pressed the gas pedal it actually decelerated and when i came to a stop it would not start. Me and my dad got it back home, and were able to get...

    HELP! My 2005 V6 Mustang has some crazy electrical issues going on. When I go over a bump or the vehicle is jarred in any way, the fuel gauge drops down to empty, all the dummy lights on the dash come on (including the check engine light), the blinker lights won't work on the dash (but they do...

    So I've noticed that the fuel warning lights goes off when the fuel level is somewhere around halfway between empty and full. The computer is also telling me that I have about 70 km before empty. Is the warning light just going off early or is there in fact less fuel in the tank than I'm lead to...

    My fuel gauge only works for a block and only when it is cold outside. I have check the voltage going in (5V) and out of the sending unit. I have check the ground on the back side of the instrument cluster. I also, recently have the oil pressure gauge goes negative when I turn the key to run...

    My fuel gauge seems to be faulty. After a fill up, the needle goes reads full, but after only a few miles of driving it reads 1/4 tank. At first we thought it was a leak but upon filling it up only six gallons topped her off. Over the summer, I let the car sit with saran wrap zip tied over the...

    Why would a fuel gauge read correctly for one minute on cold days, then read empty after that one minute and read empty all the time on warm days?
