Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I can check now to see if you have a fuse for your fuel gauge. Just give me a few minutes and I will have that information for you.

Okay. You have several fuses associated with the fuel pump. I'm not sure if one in particular is for the gauge. I advise you to test them all to make sure none are blown. I'm providing you a diagram for the vehicle and you will see were each fuel pump fuse is located.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The fuel gauge not working could be an issue in the instrument cluster itself, a wiring or connection problem, or it could be the fuel level sending unit.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to check for fault codes. Have you checked for codes?
