Hey bro, this may help you use the process of elimination to figure out if it's a failed guage or fuel sensor.

The following is a copy of a previous post....


Hey guys, I want to expose this little secret to the Mopar brotherhood for us Dodge/Chrysler guys. Many of you may already know this but here is a very cool thing.
Hold down your Tripometer/Trip reset button/push stick while your vehicle is off, put the keys to the ON position, don't turn them enough to get the stereo or AC/Heat going, just to the ON position! Let go, wait a couple seconds and watch your Instruments, LED's & Gauges! Your care will look like it has a mind of it's own! It should test all of your Instruments, LED'& Gauges in your dash console above your steering wheel. This is how the dealers usually test functionality! I love this, it looks so tight! If you do it at night or in the dark you can also turn your parking lights on to light up your Instruments & Gauges so you can see

Hope this helps.

Later,
MoparPerformance :cool:

I had a problem when my gas guage would go to 0, ding, & go back to where it was. It just needed a fuel sending KIT!. The key word is KIT! The OTHER dealer wanted to sell me a whole fuel assembly for $600. Turns out kit was available & the parts box was dated 1997. Gee guess it's been around awhile! Don't let them tell you that you need the whole 600 dollar fuel sending unit. You may not.

yesterday out of stupidity I ran my gas tank down to the point that the OTIS distance to empty read only 1 mile to go!!

damn I hope that thing isn't to accurate, kinda scary to think I had less than a mile to go..what would of happened if the gas station had a line or closed early for some reason????

I never reached zero miles and never hope to either
