My fuel gauge stopped working after I did the Big3.

What could I of messed up or what went wrong?

Is there a common error here? How can I fix it.

My gas tank gauge just doesn't move, it stays BELOW the needle it's suppose to sit on.

CAR: 1997 Buick Park Avenue

If it's supposed to be sitting on the peg (where the term "pegged" originated was the post the needle hit as a stop) and it's below the peg then it's not going to get above it, the peg will do it's job in reverse and hold it down. How on earth did it manage to get under the peg?

No idea, I noticed it after we were done and I started my car.

You might have to pull your gauges apart and pull it past the peg by flexing it out a tad. It could be below the range of the actuator's throw. It uses a design similar to a HDD arm motor.

Dunno, I don't have the service manual for your car. You can toddle down to the local library and read or check out the Chilton's or Haynes manuals for your car though. They'll have it in one of them. If they consider it a reference book they won't let you check it out but you can make a photocopy of the relevant pages for a quarter or so.

Did you leave the factory wiring hooked up to the alt?

And those pegs dont stop everything. I've seen F-150's go past the peg on the speedo....
