Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation on Cadillac Escalade

Problem Description and Possible Solution

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

i have a 2002 escalade. I'm the first owner and my gas gauge goes crazy all the time,when its full it shows empty.when its empty its shows full..i'm thinking its might be the gauge?
fuel guage not working check engine light on don't want to receive gas when refilling
Fuel level sensor doesn't stay on the correct level. Shows empty most of the time and once in a while jumps up to the correct level.
I have had this problem with my 2005 Cadillac
Escalade as well. since about 70,000 mi. Of course it is not covered by warranty but should be a recall because of the potential safety issue if you run out of gas.-RA
02 escalade reads no gas when I know I just put gas
Fuel level sensor failure p0463 code
I'll park in my garage with gas then in the morning I'm almost in the "RED"!! WTH Did the Gas Fairy's come again?? Cadillac is not really clear on how much your reserve is?? But I've went 50 mile's in the red!! I do believe there is an issue I feel though. But with the Economy as it is.....If it ain't to broke I don't fix it!! I did just recently spend $1,078 for Front Brakes & Rotor's,Rear brake resurfacing and last but not least Lt. Shock was leaking so had all replaced. 2 months ago $500.00 for a new Radiator >:( My Truck (Mr.LucKy)does 100 mile daily commute. He is Awesome so he's deserving of Maintenance Repair's. All I've ever bought before is tires. So with 130,000 miles put on him in 4 year's,Yes he's deserving ;D
My sensor is inaccurate.
Gauge states half tank when there is 3/4 tank, empty when there is 1/4 tank-I'm told it is a $600.00 repair.... No thanks
i to had this problem. easy fix just buy a new oem pump. they have been upgraded to fix this issue
replaced the fuel pump and sending unit
Fuel Gauge seems to stick. Incorrect readings
I use the fuel range button to keep track
fuel gadge has gone haywire
It doesnt mark how much gas it has
Fuel gauge keeps going crazy have to keep fueling up every 160 miles
the fuel gauge sensor is not reading the tank amount correctly. it is erratic when traveling. this vehicle is also sensitive to parking on an incline. the gas gauge will show no fuel!
I fill my tank up and all of a sudden its dropping and stays on low fuel all the time.
when it is cold outside my gas gauge goes all the way around you cannot tell how much gas is in the car when the weather is nice it seems to work okay
Keep making my truck stop. I continue to have to put gas in my car
