View Full Version : Crazy fuel gauge readings

04-23-2008, 12:31 PM
Has anyone out there had their fuel gauge swing all over the place be it full or low? I have a 2000 PS195 and I can hear the electromachanical gauges making noises "powering up" when I turn on the key on but the gas gauge doesn't stop making the noise or settle down. It just keeps a swing'n. I tried a new sender with no luck and checked for ground issues with no luck there too. Please help

I have a 97 Pro Star with the same problem. Had it looked at a while back and they were stumped too. I get some what of an accurate reading but I usually pull the seat cover off and look how much fuel is in the tank.

We had the same issue a few years ago in our ps205. All of the guages were doing what you described. What it ended up being was the computer that controls all of the guages. It had water in it. Had it replaced and never had anymore problems.

For 3 years!?! Wow - you have the patience of a saint. Did you try a new gauge or the computer?
