Default Gas Gauge Stuck Below E

I have a 2007 G35 Coupe and am having problem with the gas gauge. After replacing the car battery the gas gauge is now "stuck" below the E marker and won't move.

Has anyone encountered this issues before and know how to fix? I've heard that this could be an issue with the fuel sending unit but not sure why this would suddenly occur after changing the battery.

Thanks!

Seems more than a coincidence. Someone here may know of a way to 'reset' or reboot ... you might get some feed back.

With the ignition off, press and hold the trip reset button, then turn the key on and keep holding it. When the odometer starts to blink let go of the button. Press the trip reset button again and reset will appear. The gauges will bounce around then return to zero.

Nice! Good to know that.

Wow - Somebody was up early !!

I'll never remember this and may need it someday so I'm going to print it off and put with my car papers.

Thanks for the tip; I tried the reset several times but didn't get any movement from any of the dash gauges (including the gas gauge). Tried turning ignition for just power and then tried turing ignition to start engine but to no avail. Is there something else in the sequence that I'm missing?

Thanks!

I tried probably about a dozen times or so...the longest I waited was for about 120 seconds.

Just to be sure- if you're getting no movement at all are you going to "on" or that first key setting which is more of a standby.

Does everything else work? The float might be stuck.

I was thinking that too but it doesn't sound like this is a "going from an empty to a full tank" issue...

It's easy enough to check I suppose but once that cap comes off the FSM advises to change out that O ring as well under the cover so OP if you're going to check make sure you have one handy. They're about 8 bucks I think at the local Nissan.

I've tried the reset with both turning ignition to standby and turning ignition to start the engine. Neither appeared to have worked.

All of the other gauges are working correctly. Its only the fuel gauge that is the problem. The gauge needle is stuck about 1/4" below the E indicator and won't move regardless if the tank is filled up or not.

Like others have said, what about the float being stuck?

I've been having this issue intermittently on my 2007 coupe...but it started before I replaced the battery. I'll try the reset the next time it happens. Thanks for posting it.
