2002 Volkswagen Polo

Dear Tom and Ray
I have a 2002 VW Polo Classic 1.4. The gas gauge indicator does not move from empty when the car is turned off even when the car is started. It never shows anything in between or full, no matter how much gas is in the tank. What’s the problem?

What the heck is a Polo ?
Tom passed away almost 5 years ago.
Ray doesn’t come here.

A 17 year old VW, could be the gas gauge, the sending unit, a broken wire, a bad ground, bad fuse, dirty connection at one of the many electrical connections.

Some one is going to have to test all these things.

A Polo is a 5/6ths scale VW Golf. Very popular in some European markets.


Sending unit is defective.
