How come my fuel gauge needle stop moving?

It stops at 3/4 mark and not at full or empty.

The float in the fuel tank could be faulty.

Depending on the fault, either remove whole speedometer assembly or dropping the whole fuel tank and disseminate the fuel pump assembly. If going to scrap soon, advisable to retain it, just reset your trip meter after every refill to monitor fuel usage.

So chun stuck at 3/4?

 

Many people that always go in JB

 

pay good money for luck like that.

 

Its a sign to just leave it.

 

:D

 

And just fill to 3/4 every time you go

 

JB. Even if they check manually you

 

will always be ok.

Is it a used car? The previous owner might have done something..... There might be a secret toggle switch that you accidentally activated recently.

And I'd suggest that you fix it really soon too. You never know whether the warning light was tampered too. Besides stalling on the causeway, excessively low fuel levels can damage various parts of your car, including your catalytic converter, which can be quite expensive to replace.

Haven't fix yet. Currently pump more regularly and monitoring distance travelled.

Will repair after cny...after clicking an unknown button, the fuel gauge still won't go down.

It will display full when I pump to full.

But after using some petrol, it will always stop at around 3/4 mark.

Unknown switch ? Looks like you have bought a used car that was aclimatised for JB refueling before.

Better remove the magic switch.

 

Driving in below 3/4 is one offence

 

but tempering with the nice switch

 

is a worse offense. I know done by

 

previous owner but if caught how is

 

TS going to prove this?

 

:D

Just change the wiring of the magic switch to ignition wire

 

so cannot start the car if the magic switch is not switched on.

 Best is don't go in or pump full tank before going in. Worst is TS dunno what rewiring is done to the car and many of these are not done properly which would results in turning the car into  风火轮。
