Default 2003 93 Fuel Gauge only works when I first start the car

Hi all,

I just purchased a 2003 Saab 9-3 and the fuel gauge will show the correct amount of fuel when the car is first started, then it "turns off" and goes down to below E. Also, randomly the gas gauge will start again while I'm driving but will almost immediately turn off. This leads me to think it might be electrical in nature, but I really do not know..any thoughts?

You need a new fuel line sender. You'll have to drop the tank. Very common.
