Fuel Gauge

Need some info from anybody with regards to my fuel gauge on my 2009 Nissan Cube SL. It is not giving me the right amount of fuel in the gauge even though the tank is full of fuel. I want to take it in to the dealership my question is, is there a recall for it or it is covered under warranty? Thanks for your input.

Re: Fuel Gauge

I think I remember someone on here complaining about that as well.. You'd fill it up and it would still have a line or two missing, right?

Re: Fuel Gauge

Yes, 2 - 3 bars missing on the gauge. Do you think the fuel sending unit is defective or something else? Would this be covered under warranty if I take it in? Thanks.

Re: Fuel Gauge

When you fill the tank, do you stop after the first ''click'' or you keep going after for more.

I fill up and after the first click, I ease up on the knossle fill up more until the second click I stop. I just don't want it to overflow. Still 2 bars missing on the gauge.

Re: Fuel Gauge

This is a common problem in the cube. I had the same problem, whether I filled it up past the click on the fuel handle or not. It's the sending unit. Take it in if it's under warranty and they'll fix it for free. Problem solved...mine reads very accurate now.

Re: Fuel Gauge

Do agree with glhboy on fuel gauge issue. If it is under warranty period then one can exchange it with new one.

Re: Fuel Gauge

I finally took the Cube to the dealership and they replaced the defective fuel sending unit under warranty. All is well now with the gauge and I am a very happy man. Thanks everyone...

Re: Fuel Gauge

Had a appointement with my dealer about my issue. It just seem, according to them and they aggreed it could be the sender unit which was defect ended just that it wasn't the sender unit after all.

They didn't actually told me what it was and got myself a appointement for next wednesday because they need to order the part.
