Fuel indicator

I have a 1992 F150. It has two tanks of course. When the tank is on one tank it shows how much gas is in the tank. When i switch it over, the gauge doesnt work. Is there a sensor or float or what that isnt working. Thanks.

Yes, there is a fuel sender usually attached to the fuel pump in the tank that sends the signal to the gauge.

Just a thought: Do we know that it is even switching over tanks?

There is a lot of stuff on Google and you can try to type in stuff like "Ford dual tanks", for instance.

If you have a friend or two, it's usually easier to unbolt the bed and move it back to access the tops of the tanks. The bed is usually just held on by 6 bolts or so.
