not sure about the fuse......but if you take the sending wire on the sending unit and ground it, the guage should read full. If it does, you have a bad sending unit. Mine read waaaay empty last week, and it turned out to be the sending unit. If your guage worked great til now, and everything else is working properly, I'd bet your sending unit went south. Hope this helps.

In most cases, a dead fuel gauge indicates a bad sending unit for the gauge!

Forgot to mention when you take your old one out it'll probably say ISSPRO and it's a simple plug in :D
