Re: fuel gauge not working

mine just quit registering the front tank about 2 weeks ago. I havent had a chance to take apart the dash and make sure the switch is is seated to it's harness correctly, but that's where i'm going to start prior to dropping the tank and checking the sending unit. Is your intermitent tank working on the front, back, or dosent matter? If it works sometimes, but on both tanks, I would definately look into the switch in the dash. From what i've read in older threads, it seems to be a fairly common problem..
