Recently, I'm having problem with my SS gas gauge. I been noticing this for a while, but it just been confirm just the other day and wasn't figment of my imagination.
Problem I'm having is sometimes, on rare occasion, my fuel gauge needle gets stuck on the right side, way passed full mark like the connection at the sender is disconnected. When I noticed this, I was driving, on my way to PT so I figure I'll look under the car when my PT is done. About 10 minutes into drive, gauge started to work normal. This has been going on more and more recently, I just couldn't confirm this until recently.
I'm suspecting something simple like bad ground, but I thought I'll ask here first. What could be more common cause for this? Connection side at the rear or more on printed circuit at the gauge panel? I do have Autometer fuel gauge sitting somewhere if I need to bypass the stock unit, but it's just fuel gauge. As much as possible, I like to stick to stock unit.
Oh, and by the way, since we are on the subject of fuel gauge, how can I stop the needle from going all over the gauge when I'm driving? I had a 85' Gutless before and that fuel gauge didn't bounce all over. Diode in one of the feed line?
