    Default Gas Gauge Not Working

    My gas gauge shows full all the time, even on empty. The bars never move, just stuck showing full. Miles to empty works fine and thats what I've been using to determine how low I am on fuel. Anyone have any ideas? I know I can take it to the dealership under warranty, but I would prefer not to do that if I can avoid it.

    Assuming the float is not stuck full up:

    If the Ryker sender is low resistance empty and higher resistance full, then the sender may not have adequate ground or the sender lead is disconnected.

    If the Ryker sender is higher resistance on empty and lower resistance full, then likely the sender lead wire is grounded.
