Hello Justin. You can test the sending. should be 10-73 ohms depending on if its full or empty. If your getting anything other then that you have either a short or broken conetion and then you'll need to replace it. Gauge is easy to test. Use a 9v battery and touch it to the gauge. If it jumps to full then it's good. If its not sending unit or gauge the you'll néed to hunt down the problem in the wiring harness.
