    you need two properly operating fuel senders,the senders report to the fuel module ahead of the front tank,when the front tank gets lower then the rear tank, the module turns on the transfer pump and pumps rear to front. the module averages the two sender readings and reports to the dash guage.this is a simplified explaination and all diag for this lousy system needs to be done with a scan tool and a service manual.
