Upon starting the vehicle consumer noticed that gas gauge was on empty. Consumer then took the vehicle to a gas station and filled the gas tank but the gas gauge still was on empty when the vehicle was restarted. Vehicle was then taken to a repair shop. Mechanic indicated that when the vehicle got hot from the sun the dashboard components become inoperative. When this occurred the driver was unable to determine the speed he was driving, and how much fuel was in the gas tank.
