It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.

The pump won't work if you unplug it, I'm just trying to help you diagnose the gauge. If unplugging it doesn't make the gauge go the other way then hook a jumper wire between one of the black wires and the purple wire. Turn the key on and see if the gauge moves the other way. If it moves when you ground it test both black wires for good ground. If they are good, replace the sending unit in the tank, again, even if its new, the parts store should warranty it if its less than a year old.

Common issue on the 03-06 Rendezvous instrument clusters, usually it's caused by failing stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board and can be repaired. Check out this page for info on how to get it fixed - Rendezvous fuel gauge doesn't work
