Default Fuel Gauge

I havea 1980 Jaguar XJ6, the fuel gauge doesn't work on it.. Need to know what to check and how to check it, I've never messed with fuel gauges or any of the related components, so I don't really know what to look for, please help, thanks.

Does it work on one side and not the other? The most common failure is the fuel sending unit. You have one for each tank. One side should still work.

Afflict, just my two cents worth, Ken is right about the fuel sending unit. Another possiblity. On my 85 XJ-6, when I first got it, the button on the dash that changes from left to right tank had one of the wires disconnected. Once reconnected, the gauge worked as it should.

The sending units have a tremendous failure rate on these models.
