Most times the fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank is at fault. And once again, most times it requires removing the fuel tank to gain access to the sending unit for replacement.

How do you repair a fuel gauge on a 1998 dodge ram truck after the gas tank and fuel pump was replaced and now the fuel gauge does not work?

The gas gauge and fuel pump are on two separate circuits tand both go inside the gas tank. The gas gauge usesf a float that moves a resistor according to fuel level. Gas gauges. When you experiewnce the gas gauge not working at all I would look for a disconection external to the tank first. If you cna send six volts from the tank sender to the gauge this should cause the gauge to read. If it does then you know the problem is with the sending unit and it must be removed from the tank to repair or replace.
