Hi everyone, i'd need some help on the digital gas gauge of my 1996 falcon gli olympic classic. it's a dual fuel sedan with a flip switch on the instrument cluster panel next to the air con dials.

It always shows the tank is on 1/4 or low, but the actual analog gauge on the tank itself shows its full.

Can anyone help me with this?Either to reset it or to repair?All advice appreciated!!

You need to check the resistance at the gauge on the tank. The resistance range will be on the gauge face.
If that is fine you'll need to replace the dash gauge.

So you tested it with a multi meter?
