    93 Deville flashing E


    I recently took my car out of storage and the mechanic discovered that it needed a new fuel pump and sending unit; now my fuel data center is flashing E, when I know there is gas in the car. I would say that I have added about 5 gallons of gas in the tank. I have not had the chance to take it to gas station due to the fact that I am still working on it in my driveway. Does anyone know if there is a certain amount of fuel that is needed before the system will display the proper amount; does the car need to be driven a certain distance? Thanks

    if I remember correctly - when it gets down to two gallons -
    it triggers the E -

    are you SURE there is at least 5 gallons in it?

    if you already paid a mechanic to do the work -
    take it back and let him fix it -

    The E comes when it has less than 2 gal. left, and it starts flashing when it probably has around 1 gal. or less. Your mechanic did not hook something right.

    When all else fails, read the owners manual.
