It has always been said that electrical guages are not as accurate as mechanicals. Don't know if that is true today with the newer technology.

You may have a ground problem. That is usually the problem when the "factory" electrical guages screw up.

Gauge

[size=3]Doc here

Check the sender wire, to be sure it hasn't broken or fallen off the sender.

On Electrics When they receive No signal, they peg high...

If the wire is good, measure the sender to ground with a DMM, It should read between 30 to 100 ohms (with wire disconnected)..If not, the sender is bad, Get a new one and try again.
