2000 Ford Taurus fuel gage stuck in high level with P0460 code


Code P0460 (fuel sending unit malfunction) is present despite changing the fuel-sending unit in the fuel tank. The fuel gage in the dash panel was also replaced but still the same result.

Basic Concept:

The only component that was not mentioned here in the fuel gage circuit is the flexible fuel sensor module. This part also control your fuel level indicator. This part has to be tested including the wires in between.

Repair Strategy:

Contact ATS to locate and test the flexible fuel sensor module and replace if necessary. Also check the wires for proper ground and continuity using ATS wiring diagram for this circuit supplied by ATS. Reset the code after performing all the repairs.
