Vauxhall Astra H 1.6 20 - Fuel Gauge reading empty - willjicar

Hello everyone,

The fuel gauge of my Vauxhall Astra H 1.6 is reading empty even though it is half full.

Yesterday I had to take my battery out and charge it (Bad connections on stereo I suspect, I usually take my stereo out when I turn the car off, but the past few days i've left it in and now the battery is dead, not the first time it's happened).

When I put the battery back, the car works but I noticed the fuel gauge all of a sudden is stuck on 0 and the Low Fuel light is flashing. I'm not sure whether this is a mechanical problem with the fuel tank or an electrical one with the signal not being transmitted.

I've not done any diagnostics on it yet and i'm hoping it's a cheap fix lol

Disconnect the battery for 10 mins. Re connect and drive the car .This should make the dash network relearn where it was.
