Greetings from Phoenix!

Can anyone please tell me about the gas gauge in my 98 230 SLK?

The car has been sitting for a couple of years. I wanted to siphon out the old gas before I tried to start it. When I put the key in and turn to position 2, the gas gauge doesn't move (Still reads empty) When does your gas gauge activate?

The car has an interesting story behind it, that you can find in another post called "What up with My SLK?"

It should be switching on when its not so possibly an issue with the fuel sender or maybe the display itself

It turns out a new battery solved this problem. The old battery had a bad cell and did not put out proper power. Once I installed the new battery all the guages started working including the gas guage.

Unfortunatley now I need to siphon out 1/2 a tank of gas.
