1995 Oldsmobile Aurora Gas Gauge

Oldsmobile Olds Aurora 1995, 4.0 V8. We just brake work, bearings, and electrical. Gas gauge hasn't worked since I got the (used) car. Question: I would like to know what you think the approximate cost(parts and labor) would be to replace the gas gauge on my '99 Olds Aurora. Thanks so much.

If in fact the level sensor in the tank is bad, approximate cost for replacement is $300. This depends on the labor rate of the shop that is doing the work.

With the age of the car and mileage, some technicians will quote not just the sensor, but the whole fuel pump module assembly in the tank, which includes the fuel pump. If that is the case, then you can add approx. $300.

Live Chat: Question: 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora all the needles on the gauges went to -0- the heating and air conditioning system doesn't work, the remote trunk release doesn't work and the car locks don't work....the date and time instrument malfunction panel went out or reminder panel...went out all at the same time.

Mechanic: Does it start?

Yes, the lights work internally and exrernally, the radio works, the key remote doesn't work either..it all happened at once. When i hit the electric seat button all of the electrical went out.

There are wires under the drivers seat that get corroded and break, especially a splice. I would have that checked.

But how does that effect the needles on the gas gauge and the heating system?

It depends on which wires are corroded. Just because the wires are under the seat, does not mean they are only for the seat. The main wiring harness of the interior runs from one side of car to the other- under the seats/carpet.

So its not a fuse under the hood? The electric lever on the drivers side door, the hazard lights come on.

There may be a blow fuse or two. There is also a fuse box under the back seat. If there are any blown, this goes back to the wires under the seat causing a short circuit.

How to do you get to the fuse box under the back seat? Where is it located exactly? drivers side? passengers side?

Pull up on the right font, then the left front of the rear seat. It will pop the whole seat up. It is on drivers side.

Gonna check it out and hit you up if we have any more questions :) peace and thanks. Yah, well, we are going to check it out and yes!!! you are helpful and ill add you or like you on facebook... Okay we got the seat off and now there is one small box on the left and two larger boxes behind the drivers seat. which box is it?

Check all three.

OK, thanks alot !
