Honda Accord Fuel 03 Fuel Gauage Issue by douchesnozzle(m): 4:48pm On Dec 24, 2016
Please I need help with my Honda accord fuel gauage. The gauage is stuck on empty even when I have a full thank. Took the car to the car electrician, after much testing he said I had to get a gauage cluster as the sender unit and other wiring are correct. I bought a new guage cluster from onitsha but was surprised that it didn't work. When connected to my car, the dashboard lights, speedometer and other meters worked but d fuel guage was still stuck on empty. My electrician said the cluster I bought wasn't for my car. He showed me the numbers on mine and the one I bought the difference was just in alphabet. Mine had AF before alphabet but one I bought had a different alphabet which I can't recall. He also said mine was a 2013 while I bought a 2014, but my car is a 2003 model

Please gurus in d house kindly advise, is it possible that a car of d same yr model would have certain different electrical components? Also if it was different like d electrician stated, how come other meters on the car worked except the fuel guage. Please I need ur thoughts so I don't spend more money returning something that isn't faulty cos am already suspecting that I didn't need a new cluster in the first place.

Based on your words you said he said wires are correct, what does he mean by that ?

Meaning no grounding issues or lose connections.
