Check the wire and be sure it is not grounding out. If it is all good then the sending unit in the gas tank needs to be replace. The unit is on the side of the fuel pump mounting bracket in the tank.

1996 ford f150 front gas tank gauge reads empty but tank is full pump in front tank was replaced about a year ago what could problem be

When pump was replaced, did you also replace sending unit? It is usually a good idea to replace sending unit when replacing pump. The sending unit also "sends" information about the fuel level to your fuel gage. It is also possible the float on the sending unit is stuck in the low fuel or empty position on the sending unit. Although on some vehicles you can replace individual parts of the fuel delivery system, it is usually a good idea to replace all the internal parts of the sending unit assembly at the same time. After all, most fuel tanks can be a real pain to gain access to the inner workings of the fuel delivery system, so why take the chance of having to gain access again.
Good luck.

I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo the gas gage is not reading correctly i fill it up and it reads empty and the gas light is on all the time.

The fuel level sending unit is located inside the fuel tank along with the fuel pump and will need to be replaced if it has burned out. It may be included with a new fuel pump assembly or sold seperately. There could be a bad electrical connection so be sure and check that all electrical connections are clean and secured before you spend money replacing parts and removing the fuel tank.
