There was an issue with the sending unit itself. There were 4 or 5 thin contact points on the sending unit. The new ones have 3 thicker contact points, they tend to last longer. As the contacts break off one by one the fuel gauge becomes intermittent and then nothing.

Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus


try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

I replaced my fuel pump and sending unit, Gauge still not working

1992 Saturn SC Fuel Pump Problem


You need to get the schematic / wiring diagram . There is a junction block in the center console where the wiring is routed to the entire car. The contact on the power wire to the pump gets burned /dirty and becomes intermittant . It needs to be cleaned .This happened to me twice.
