Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Do you happen to know what codes you may have? since you mentioned the Service Engine Soon light is on

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Don't know how to get codes. At time of first stall gas gauge read 1/4 tank but was empty. Also few days before radio had stopped working. Radio now works but gas gauge does not

Well this is the first thing I would do. Auto Zone offers free scans. Maybe swing by there and have them scan it and return back to this question with the code. This way once I have the code I can better assist you.

Do you think you can do that?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok. Will do and get back.
