Subject: Re: Gas Gauge Drops to Empty?

Shane, My car ('04 9-3 Arc) did the same thing yesterday, and the day before. On my way to work, I stopped by Just SAAB Dayton to see if they knew about this problem. In less than 45 min I was out of there, and on my way to work. They had to unplug the power cable to the gas pump-float (I don't know where it may be located, but they had my car on the lift), cleaned the wiring harness connector, and then put it back together. That seemed to fix it the problem with the gas gauge. Good Luck! SB Shane Almeida wrote: > I started my car this morning and everything was fine.
