thanx guys, ill try that resistor thing first and see if that will last me till summer i appreciate it alot also, just for wanting to know, when the fuel actually does go low, since my check gauges light is on, will my gas tank show on the DIC when it is really actually low, cause it isnt showing anything now?

Yep, when the fuel level is actually low, the fuel tank icon will light in the driver info display.

Had the same exact problem on my 99 GMC Sierra truck - new fuel sensor (and pump, etc. in the tank) solved it also. Must be a GM thing !

Both of my cars do this occasionally. They both return to normal after a few miles. No problemo, senor.

Unless the problem proves permanent, just live with it.

Mine does that. For $425, I'm ignoring the bejesus out of it.

I reply more on the trip odo anyway.

Our GMC truck did it for awhile until it goes worse and worse, where it started reading erratic at all levels - at which time we decided to finally fix it !

As I stated earlier, both my cars do this occasionally. The SSEi has for 3 years, and it doesn't get any worse.
