Sounds like a bad sending unit in the gas tank. While there you may as well replace the fuel pump too.

I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Jeep Truck I just purchased and the gas gauge is not working it's on empty even when fill it up!

Check the Fuel Sending Unit in the fuel pump. Disconnect the wire to the sending unit, at the tank, and ground it to the car frame. Turn the key to on and see if the fuel gauge goes to Full. If it does the gauge and wire are good and the problem is in the sending unit. If it's still on E the gauge is bad or the wire is open.

Keep us updated.

Fuel tank show empty when full

either the wire feeding the gauge is broken somewhere between the gauge or the fuel tank, or the sender unit needs replacing. Anyone recently work on your fuel delivery system?

Fuel gauge

Well, your fuel gauge can be stuck at the 3/4 mark. Or you bent it while installing it, causing a wrong reading.

Take out the fuel pump and ensure when the float is at the empty position your gauge is at E. If not adjust it properly. Also make sure your connections are correct. You said you swith the wires, don't see how they only go one way unless you have the nut and screw type.

Again, I think you bent it while installing it.. Also make sure you put the pump in correctly, you could have installed it the wrong way not letting the float ..............float!
