I had the same problem with my 90 daytona. The tach and the speedometer would work intermitantly. I took the whole gauge cluster out, and heated all the soldering with a solder gun to reflow the connections. It seems that this is a common problem with the connections cracking. You may not be able to see the cracks in the solder.

SOURCE: Gas gauge reading is erratic.
Your sending unit is getting flaky - it's a known issue. You can repair it though, rather than buy a new sender.
Do not do this job with any more than a 1/4 tank of gas or you'll get a fuel bath in the trunk.
Here's a DIY procedure on how to do it - 99% of the time on these cars, when there's a gas gauge issue, it's the broken wire they show in the procedure. I was out of solder at the time I fixed mine, so I used barrel clamp connectors to crimp a jumper wire into place on the broken ends of the wire, and that fixed it permanently.
Here's the link:)
Instead of replacing the sender, fix the visibly broken wire and it'll fix the failure.

first replace your fuse if the fuse burn again there is a short circuit cause of the hit search wire that is contct to the body of your car
