    If I fill tank gage will go to zero. After driving 50 miles or so gage will register correct level. Solution try not to fill tank and live with it. Dealer says fix is up to $1800
    At 121000 miles problem failed to correct. Went on youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jkuap-JM7To
    followed directions only removed fuse with small needle nose plier and reinserted. Problem solved in 5 minutes. However suspect the underlying problem which caused it is still there.

  • Fuel level does not indicate level when you first put gas into tank. I have to keep tank on full so that I can mentally keep up with miles if I do not fill tank up. The gas gage will come up eventually, you just don't know when it is going to happen.

    When I fill up, nothing.

    My solution:
    When filling up, I turn the car off then turn the key so that the car powers to the point that all of the accessory lights are on and I reset the trip mileage tracker. As I am filling up, the needle moves in the right direction and once it is full, the needle is in the right place. Sometimes within 5 minutes of driving, the needle will drop to empty, but there is a sharp curve near my gas station and for some odd reason taking that curve will make the needle stay where it is supposed to.

    The dealer says this is related to my needing a new AAM...their cost to fix $2000. The cost of a new AAM $180, so since a dealer can only put the AAM in and program it...I'll continue doing it my way.
