Default Fuel gauge not working

My fuel gauge has been reading wrong for 2 yrs. now. It will show right sometimes and sometimes just show empty all the time. thats how it has been goin up until the past few months now the gauge stays on empty and the low fuel light never goes off. Anyone had this problem before and if so, any ideas on how to fix it?

I have the same problem with my 97 Dakota. Since my son is going to vo-tech for auto I had him bring it into the shop. He checked the sending unit in the tank and seemed ok but there was no power going to the fuel guage. Probably a bad guage or a short. You need to check the same. I have not fixed it yet.

Cool. Thanks. I hope I dont have to drop the tank. I think I'll check for power at the gauge first.

My gas guage has been out for over 3 years just got lazy cause i though I would have to drop entire dash. Turs out all I have to do is take off dash bezzel(pops off)and instrament cluster it right here. Probably the same on the Ram.
