    Aloha, Wow got into my vette the other day and I looked at the dash and thought WHAT NOW? Oh It was the gas gauge Working Again I didn't recognize it after not seeing it for over a year....I drove for a few miles then it went to empty again, BUT then went back to almost full ( I recently topped off the tank) and stayed working all the way home for 19 miles!!!!!!!! I was happy....but then found out today my son was put into Hospice after failing his 13 month fight with stage 4 cancer. Well I got a little good news before the bad. David

    David so glad to hear about this fuel gauge finally working.....not glad to hear about your son! I sure pray that the Lord will touch him with comfort and give him doctors of wisdom and knowledge on his fight. He is in our prayers.

    Aloha, sorry to report my son passed away April 3rd 2017 but thanks for all the good wishes, he is now free from all the pain and suffering from the past 14 months. Worse time of our life but we will move forward.
    Now I will concentrate on working on my Vette doing the oil change myself and removing some rear panels to check connections to the fuel sending units to look for wire connection problems or whatever I can see.....

    So sorry for your loss. Suddenly all the crap with the car becomes so much less important. May your son finally rest in peace and your family have the strength to carry on.
    As I approach my own 2 year "anniversary" I have great empathy for those in the fight and their loved ones.

    Aloha, Thanks to all the sincere replies. I changed my oil changed today and now i need to find out how to reset the oil life display....any thoughts? And my gas gauge works each day now.. though still intermittent, sometimes shows the 7/8 full tank as it should be now , then sometimes it read 1/4 tank and then other times reads empty again. Still want to get some panels removed underneath and get a look see. I think I'll invest in an impact wrench to make the job faster and get into it. Still hoping its rats that got into something....like they just did to 2 of my spark plug cable insulators and some black foam rubber protectors on the air intake lines to the valve covers....it's always something!

    Sorry to read about the continuing issues! If you garage your Vette, you might consider installing one or more ultrasonic pest repellers. I have used them in my garages (we live on a golf course) and they have been extremely effective. To reset the oil life indicator, while the message is displayed, press and hold SEL (the same way you do to reset the trip odometer).

    I am so very sorry to hear the excruciating news about your son. Can not comprehend how difficult this was for you, for him and the entire rest of your family.

    Thankful that he is no longer suffering. However, I can not imagine your and your family's challenges trying to move forward from his devastating passing.

    So very sorry. But, as you say, he's no longer in pain and is at peace. Godspeed for him and for your family.

    David, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Without going in to a lot of detail, I know the pain you're feeling. Time does not heal all wounds. It just lessens the frequency of the grief. God bless you and your family.
