If it doesn't move, the problem probably exist with the sending unit. Unfortunately, the work required to get to it may not be worth the trouble. First you must remove the unit from the the fuel tank. This requires removing the tank-major undertaking; estimated at $500. Once the unit is out of the tank, open the casing and clean it thoroughly-debris is the most likely culprit for it not working. Re-assemble and install.
