ICC 000096.03 – Fuel Sender Voltage Above Normal, or Shorted to High Source

ICC 000096.03 (ICC 96.03)

Code: 000096.03

Shortcode: 96.03


This error code indicates that the fuel sender output voltage is above the normal operating range, suggesting an open circuit. This could be due to a wiring issue, a faulty fuel sender, or a connection problem within the system.


When this error is detected, the fuel gauge might display inaccurate readings, potentially leading to incorrect fuel level information for the operator.


  • Inspect Wiring and Connections:
    • Check the wiring for any signs of damage, corrosion, or loose connections.
    • Ensure all connectors are properly seated and free of dirt or debris.
  • Test the Fuel Sender:
    • Use a multimeter to check the resistance of the fuel sender. Compare the readings to the manufacturer’s specifications.
    • Replace the fuel sender if it is found to be faulty.
  • Verify ECU Input:
    • Check the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) inputs for correct voltage levels.
    • Ensure the ECU is functioning correctly and update its software if necessary.


This code is typically triggered by an electrical issue. Regular inspection and maintenance of the fuel system wiring can help prevent recurrence.
