Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Absolutely, your gauge works off of resistance that is calibrated, if you have a rusty or bad ground you are causing more resistance, hence a full reading. Disconnecting it puts it to its default setting which is full, All the resistance in the unclean ground is tricking your sender in to thinking tank is full...

Ive repaired many of these .run your tank down near empty .jack up the truck ,remove tank straps and fuel hoses . remove tank and remove the ring on top of tank pull out sending unit ,plastic float connected to the pickup and vent pipes all 1 unit and just replace it .plug n the new sending unit and pipes use the new o ring provided .dont bother trying to fix the old stuff just change it and have peice of mind its a cheap part.the work, is removing the tank if you dont have a shop and tools ,zip cut, deep sockets ,hammer and a dull chisle . good luck. often 1 of the bolts on the straps breaks i often drill t add a new bolt and use it anyways .
