    Thank you. I have tried disconnecting the battery but I am a novice and do not know where the connector at the fuel pump is. Could the contacts be dirty?

Disconnect the connector at the fuel pump. This may allow the needle to come down which would be a good thing. If it stays up you may need a sending unit thats in the tank, and the gauge. Also try disconnecting the battery. This may allow the needle to settle.
If the needle comes down thats good.. You may be able to replace just the sending unit.

    Your going to have to disconnect the fuel pump to find out, It may not come down till you put the new sender in the tank. If it doesnt come down after the new sender unit the gauge is bad. Its also possible the gauge comes as a sealed unit in the instrument cluster. You may need to replace the whole unit.

Won't turn over. The instrument cluster won't work

ok iif the instrument cluster does not work.. before i give a solution can you tell me if it have atach and temp gage not a temp gage witha idiot light but a actual temp gage.. because if temp gage and fule gage hands are not in their proper place like if yo uhave a 1/4 tank of gas and it reads way past full and the temp gage is gone out of site way past say 240 degrees then it is your speedo head .. have this trouble the other day on a chevy 2002 cavalier.. replaced the head and wahla the car started. it seems the speedo head is tied in with the computer system on these cars.. and if the tach is not working you need not worry if you cannot find a head with a built in tach.. a normal speedo head with out the tach part will also work.. just when you change the head count the pins on the old one and compare it to the new one if they match then just plug it in and car should start..

What makes the speed odometer work improperly?

there is a sender in the fule tank this may be faulty so its not sending the info to the tank gage find the whire from this sender on the fule tank and short it out to the car bodywork the tank should then read full up if the wireing is good, if there is still no reading its likley to be the gage not working, or a broken wire to the sender,,,if the sender is broken it canot be fixed so fit a new one but check how much fule is in the tank before you try to remove the old sender or it may spill out every were, if you fit a new selder only add a gall of fule and see if there is a reading on the gage before adding more so you find out when the tank is realy empty,, never trust the gage to be true
