Q: Code for fuel level sensor.

asked by on

I received a Code P0463 - Fuel Level Sensor "A" Circuit High. What does this mean?

This means that the sensor inside your fuel tank isn’t reading properly. This could mean faulty fuel gauge readings and could even leave you stranded without fuel. I suggest having a qualified technician, like one from YourMechanic to diagnose and repair the issue.
