Question about 2002 Toyota Sequoia
Either the sender has failed (a device within the gas tank) or wiring has been damaged.
Normally there is a variable resistor that produces the reading and a switch that turns on the warning light but they may be deriving a value from the resistor to control the light which would only require a single wire be present instead of two.
Another recent possibility is that a thief has drilled a hole in it and stolen the fuel; a trick that became common after gasoline exceeded the $3/gallon threshold. I doubt that in your case however, since I assume you can still start and drive.
