well thats the fuel sender unit, could be on it's way out, do u ever find that your fuel gauge reads lower than it should, i.e it say u have a quarter of a tank when u know it should have a half full tank? or does it take upto 30 seconds from when u turn on the ignition for it to register?

I have just finished replacing my fuel pump/sender unit today, pain in the !Removed! !Removed!

long shot but how much fuel do u have in the tank when u do the in dash test? if the level is low then it might just be because of the try half a tank full see if it comes up with it then, might wanna try disconnecting the battery first for 15. if u have plenty of fuel when u tried it then i don't know, codes generally don't appair for no reason esp if they wont go away

some codes though cleared will stay on the dash until the car has completed a preset amount of driving ie a month without the fault reoccuring which is what sounds like is happening for example if you got a low battery code and replaced the battery it will still show on the dash till the car has been turned on and off so many times and completed so many miles
