pic's not working....... i'd have to say your sending unit has had a better day... but i'd start with the ground and hot wires just to cover the simple stuff first..

It does sound like the sending unit. Grounding the sending unit makes the gauge read full. A broken ground will read empty.

Does this happen no matter how much gas is in the tank though?
