I know I've seen information on an electric gas gauge on this forum ..... but I can't find it in a search.

Help!

I heard that the 2005's have a sending unit already installed, and all you need to do is install a gauge with the proper resistance. Is this true? Anyone done it?

Does that mean you've done it? :) If so, can you tell me what all is needed to wire it up and what gauge works properly? I just replaced the stock gas cap with a solid one, because it was broke and leaked gas.

I have a 2006 and wonder if anyone has done a fuel gauge on one of these? If I have a sending unit then what or where do I buy the gauge? Really appreciate any info. TYhanks, smoker

You guys ROCK! Just finished installing a fuel gauge in my 05 700XP. Dealer said I was crazy and that there was no sending unit in the 05. I found the purple wire tied to the wiring harness near the accessory power plug in the dash. Estimated the fuel level in the tank at about a third full and took an ohm reading and got a reading of 34 ohms. Filled the tank, did another reading and got a reading of 87 ohms.

I picked up a 2 5/8 inch 0-90 ohm Stewart Warner gauge on ebay, followed the installation instructions and now have a functioning fuel gauge in the dash where the safety/warning decal used to be. I put it there as I don't consider a fuel gauge something that requires constant attention and it is out of the way.

Just wanted to say thanks to those who figured it out in the first place!

Yep, just installed my gauges, as well. I like knowing what's going on now that I have them. Thanks carnivore!

My gas cap / gauge is leaking and I was wanting to swap it out for a solid cap and put a gauge on my dash.
During my search I found this post. But the links dont seem to work ???

Does my 2005 500 already have the sending unit in the tank ?


If anyone has done this on a 500 or if its no differnt from the 700's can you tell me what I need to do it :?

Sending Unit

I have a 2005 500 camo and it did not have a sending unit in the tank.
I had to install one from Napa.
The worst part was cuting the hole in the tank without getting the plastic shavings into the tank.

Did you keep a list of what all you bought, or does anyone have list of what is needed for this ?

Fuel Gauge

Scooby,
No I did not keep a parts list. But I think if you go to any auto parts store and tell them you are looking for a sending unit and a gauge it would come with a diagram.
Good luck
John

I'll go talk to the guys at NAPA.
I think I see what your saying, sounds like the sender is sort of a "all purpose /multi application" type of sender. :)
I was thinking you were buying something for a paticular vehicle and then adapting it to the ranger :?
