Sounds like it. HTH. -Jim


Any resolution to your problem Tom. I have a 2014 1500 5.7 and my fuel Gauge is doing the same thing. At 1st it was just the gas cap sensor that made the check engine light go on and off constantly. Now unless my tank is completely topped off the gage reads below empty and I get a "fuel sensor fail" on my messages. How is it failing if it reads a full tank but anything below full it reads empty... I'm thinking maybe my float is stuck?!?! Idk

Thanks for the reply, I'm told it's the float on top of my tank. To get to it you need to take the body off!,,. So for now I just keep it full, I also had a bad leak on the back window so I had to seal it with silicone , my is a 2014 1500 crew cab, last one I'm going to buy , iv had three in 9 years but no more.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 and the gas gauge wont work i put a new fuel pump and sending unit in it and still don't work so i dropped the gas tank and took the fuel pump back out of the tank and just plug in the fuel pump and the gas gauge will go to fill for about 20 seconds and go back to empty

I too am having fuel gauge problems. I have a 2015 1500 Long Horn that I just bought used with 48k. When I bought it the gauge said just over 1/2 tank. I went and filled it and the gauge was off the charts all the way down on the right, way past the full mark. Today I the gauge fell just below 1/2 a tank and the fuel light came on! What the hell is it?

Crap, I typoed, I have a 2014 Long Horn


I am told its a case of taking off the body to get to the area to fix it. this is my third ram truck , and I am disappointed in it, the rear window or roof light leaked so I had to seal that too. Not sure if I will have another one.
