View Full Version : Gas Gauge not working

05-25-2011, 10:11 PM
2000 sportstar gas gauge quit last year. Replaced gauge and still not working. Replaced fuel sending unit and after replacing unit the gauge does nothing before it read full when key was turned on. Help, Im a novice at best. Cleaned grounds at block last year as all gauges quit about the same time. Oil pressure and Temp are working fine.

Sounds like a ground behind the dash??? I replaced dash last year and "thought" I meticulously re-attached every wire... but I misplaced (1) little ground... the boat wouldn't start for anything! LOL.

Where is the ground behind the dash?

The is a small metal bar that should have several wires hook to it that provide ground for most of the dash. Use a test light hooked to postive to test for ground. Or at least this is the way my 02 xstar is.
