Look for the wiring harness coming from the top of your fuel tank. There should be a single black wire all by itself. If you were to follow that wire, you will see that it is attached to ground, or at least should be. If the connection is corroded, there is a possibility the connection is not grounded. If not the ground wire, you may have to replace the fuel sending unit inside the tank.

I had this issue for about two years..It stopped working..I took it to the Dealer and they blew me off by saying that the line is shot and it would cost $700 to replace and they talked me out of it... But there is an underlying issue when your guess gauge is not working- your fuel pump is going..Like I said it took two years and bam, fuel pump went. When they replaced it by gas gauge began to work again. This line is tied into the both the gauge and fuel pump..It cost me $1,000 from the dealer plus towing...
