I assume you have the wire connected to the sender. Did you put teflon tape on the sender when you installed it?

Make sure you have a good ground on the motor.
Do not put any tape or sealer on the sending unit, the sending unit needs a good grounding from the motor to work.

The connector on mine had corrosion.. I put it on and got no read. Took it off, cleaned it up a bit along with the end of the sending unit, put it back on and its been great ever since.

(Senders are like... $8 or so)
