I have a 2004 Ranger 520VX with touch pad and regular gas gauge. Both gas gauges are stuck on full no matter which tank i choose on touch pad.

I am decent at working on things. Is this possible I can fix myself? I don't think it would be the sender unit if both arent reading right?

Any help would be appreciated.

I just fixed mine on my 521vx. First remove the seats. To do that you remove the center fusion on the two seat backs and there are two screws behind each one. Then slide the seat forward slightly and lifting up and out of the way. You will now see the fuel tanks and the sending unit on each one. Take one wire off of the sender and touch it to the other with the power on and touchpad on each side when you touch them. If the gauge does not move when the wires are touched then the gauge is bad. If it does move the your sending units are bad. Both of my sending units were bad, and I replaced them with mueller units that were a direct fit and about $30 each.

These are the ones I bought. Just make the rods the same as the ones you remove from the tanks. https://www.amazon.com/Moeller-Marine-Electric-Universal-Sending/dp/B000MTCRAA
