Sounds like the fuel sending unit has packed it in. You will have to drop the tank to check the wiring, etc. but this is typically the problem. There is a chance your gas gauge has died, this can be purchased separately from other dash components but I would suspect the sending unit first.

I would try replacing the instrament cluster first there were alot of issues with them in 95 and 96. You should be able to pick up a used for a good price.

i got the same thing on the same truck. my truck runs fine. mine has a bad float because on a half a tank the needle would bearly move. its a $1000 repair so i left it alone.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

what if the gas gage come back on after u shut it off and turn it on I had went thow a mud hole then it started I was thank it was a wire
