The gas gauge operates using a series of wires that should be clean and properly connected to both the battery and the tank sending unit. To determine whether the gauge is receiving power, connect a jumper wire from the ignition to the dash gauge. If the gauge works while connected to the jumper wire, replace the wiring from the ignition to the gauge. Test the wiring connected to the sending unit by attaching a jumper wire and checking the operation of the gauge.
