Follow the appropriate pinpoint test (PPT) for “Fuel Gauge Inaccurate” in Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 413-01. If PPT test results lead to fuel pump module replacement, proceed to Step 2. If PPT test results isolate any problem other than fuel pump module replacement, repair as indicated and do not continue with this TSB. b. Install diagnostic scan tool to retrieve DTCs.
