ELECTRICAL SENSOR MONITORING FUEL LEVEL COMMENCED TO PROMOTE FALSE FUEL LEVEL DISPLAY AT ABOUT 41,000 MILES. PROBLEM WOULD MANIFEST UPON FUEL LEVEL REACHING 1/4 FULL; FUEL GUAGE WOULD MOVE TO NEAR FULL. RESEARCHING INTERNET CAR WEBSITES THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON COMPLAINT AMONG OWNERS OF 1997 BRAVADA, JIMMYS AND BLAZERS. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SAFETY DEFECT CAUSING OPERATOR TO RUN OUT OF FUEL BELIEVING VEHICLE HAS ANYWHERE BETWEEN 1/2 TO 3/4'S A FULL TANK. MY WIFE RAN OUT OF GAS ON I-77 OUTSIDE OF CHARLOTTE, NC DURING FAST TRAFFIC, ALMOST RESULTING IN AN ACCIDENT WHILE TRYING TO GET OFF THE ROAD. THERE WAS ALSO DANGER OF SOMEONE STOPPING WITH INTENTIONS OTHER THAN HELP. COST QUOTED FOR REPAIR WAS $1,000, ALTHOUGH THIS AMOUNT WAS REDUCED TO $500.
