Some customers may comment on the vehicle stalling and will not restart, vehicle ran out of fuel, vehicle appears to be out of fuel but the fuel gauge reads above empty. The fuel gauge may read 1/4 tank.


Contamination on the fuel sending card may cause inaccurate/incorrect fuel gauge readings.


Follow the service procedure below for diagnosis and repair of this concern.
1. Confirm that the vehicle is actually out of fuel.

^ If the vehicle is not out of fuel but Engine Cranks but Does Not Run, refer to the appropriate Service Information.

^ If the vehicle is out of fuel and the gauge does not read empty, test the fuel gauge. Refer to the following information:

- Fuel Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative Single Tank

- Fuel Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative Dual Tanks

- Fuel Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative Colorado and Canyon

2. If testing reveals that the fuel gauge is operating correctly, replace the fuel sensor assembly and auxiliary tank fuel level sensor if equipped.

3. Replace the fuel level sensor. Refer to the following appropriate service information:
