Gas gauge

60

Asked by Apr 20, 2016 at 06:49 PM about the 2006 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently replaced my fuel pump on my 06 F150
because I was not getting fuel to engine. Come to
find out it was the fuel rail pressure sensor.
Replaced sensor and truck fired right up. But, now
my gas gauge isn't reading at all. Could an
aftermarket fuel pump not be compatible to read
my gauge?

nope...the gas gauge is it's own set of wires which connect to the fuel float/sender...just test the leads for continuity...it reads varying resistances based on the float position...same for the display...variable resistance indicates WHERE to put the needle~

Really was hoping I wouldn't have to drop the tank again. But, I guess there's no way around that.

well kinda...am having trouble finding your exact model...this picture shows this chap testing with the tank in place...so just take a looksee if you can get to the gauge sender without the fuss~

Raised up back seats but don't see anything like that. Unless I have to take seats out and pull back carpet

..well that's just a picture from the F 150...may not be xtended cab...just look where the fuel float is...and look above it to find the access hatch~...not entirely sure that your model has that...but most likely~ finding pictures has been hellish...perhaps we may be out of luck in this department~
