Sounds like the gauge is bad.

Usually a big hammer helps in these situations...just kidding.

I'm not an electrical guru, but I believe power should flow through the gauge to the sending unit which varies resistance in the circuit via the float going up and down. The varied resistance shows on the gauge as the amount of gas in the tank.

If you're getting power to the gauge and not out then the gauge or the connections there are the culprit.
