APPLIED ENGINE #:
If the fuel gauge on a 1998-99 Frontier exhibits the symptoms listed below (indicated by bullet points), the cause may be wire harness to body ground
contact points, the fuel sender (in the fuel tank) or the unified control meter (contained in the speedometer assembly).
The wire harness to body ground and fuel sender conditions only apply to vehicles built before September 1, 1999. The unified control meter
condition only applies to vehicles built before January 1, 1999.
Fuel gauge indicates less than full after the fuel tank is filled.
Fuel gauge moves down rapidly to 7/8 or 3/4 after the fuel tank is filled.
Use the following service procedure to repair the vehicle if these incidents occur.
Confirm the incidents occur as described above.
If the incidents occur, proceed with step 2.
If the incidents do not occur, this bulletin does not apply.
Remove the machine bolt from body ground M68 (located behind the passenger side kick panel) and clean the contact surfaces of the ground wire
eyelet and the body panel as necessary to ensure metal-to-metal contact (see Figure 1). Reinstall the bolt carefully to avoid damaging the threads.
