What cases this is a bad signal from your sening unit in the gas tank. Before you go out tearing that apart check the wire harness from the tank to the frame. The wire's may have a break in it and Good luck

Should be on the passenger side kickplate below the glovebox and to the right. You may have to remove the plastic panel to access it or look for a small hole in it and feel around for the button

My 2001 Silverado with 113,000 mi has the same problem. I was told that with the fuel formula change in last few years it has affected vehicles 2002 or 2003 and older because it has corroded the metal that the float moves on. Mine will at times start working when it's 3/4 or less gas in the tank. My solution is to reset the trip od at every fill up. I get approx 450 mi on a tank but refill at 400 to be on the safe side.
This answer I got makes sense to me, but who knows.

all you need to do is listen to hear the tank switching valve is working. It will make a soft noise under the rear cab section with the key on with the engine off. zif you do hear it sounding the switch your tank unit for that one tank you try to switch to is a fault. Sorry no illustrated diagrams are on hand, just knowledge
