Fuel gage reading wrong for 1999 Ford Taurus: No codes


My fuel gage does not work properly and fluctuates between 1/4 to 1/2 all the time even if the tank is full. Over the weekend, I changed the fuel sending unit inside the fuel tank but it's still the same. Some friends are telling me to change the instrument cluster but I am not sure. Can you help?

ATS Advisor:

It's good you did not follow your friends because you would be wasting your time. There is small black box behind your radio near the glove compartment and this part is usually the culprit. This part is called a flex module and connects to your fuel gage in the instrument panel and usually goes. This is a common problem and ford stock them all the time.

ATS Tip:

To get a wiring diagram so you can locate this part, please contact ATS if you are a member.
