Fuel Gage

My fuel gage was bad on my Wellcraft. The needle layed completely way below the empty. When you turned the switch on it did nothing. I bought a new gage and put it on and hooked all wires up according to diaghram. Now when I turn the switch on the needle drops below the empty and when I turn the switch back off it goes back up to the empty mark on the gage. Any suggestions as to where to look. I did reverse the polarity just in case that was it but it was not.

Sounds like you have a bad sender or a nicked wire.
