Default Gas guage

My 2003 SSEi has been sitting for about six weeks. Now my gas guage is stuck full - copnsequently, the associated electronics also all mis-read. Will this likely correct itself on next fill up or is it a warranty item?

Thanks'

It could be a warranty claim if your extended warranty covers such failures.

Otherwise, your fuel level sensor is suspect.

I agree with Vital49. Try the warranty program first. If not covered, the try the GM fuel system treatment to see if that clears things up. If not, time to move to the sender.

You say it'* affecting your other gauges as well? How so? If all your gauges are acting funny, it might be more of a cluster issue.

I don't see how your fuel sending unit would affect your other gauges.

When I refered to the guages, I was talking about the range left in the tank, right now the range is increasing, rather than decreasing as the fuel is used.
