The most common cause of this problem is that the gas gage sending unit that senses the fuel level is defective, it is an open circuit. The sending unit is part of the fuel pump module and all comes as one part. To replace the fuel pump module you must drop the fuel tank out of the truck.

You can do this without dropping the tank.
There is a panel where you can cut in just above the fuel pump and change it easily and painlessly.
See the attached video that I made.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that my C/T guage reads about three degrees higher on the outside temperature side than the actual temperature is. I realize that might be a minor problem,...


Are you talking about the coolant temperature (c/t) or the ambient temperature (outside temp). If you're refering to the ambient temperature the problem is the sensor is located under the radiator support and picks up the temperature off the pavement this is done intentionally to help detect icing conditions and unfortunatley there is no calibration for the sensor.
