Check your instrument cluster to see if the needle is stuck past the pin, if it is then take the cluster out and open it, and pop the needle back over. After you replaced the pump and the sending unit, the light still stays on?

SOURCE: Fuel Sending unit on a 2000 Chevy Silverado

if it is the fuel level sending unit you will have to replace the pump because they are a 1 piece assambly. it will be a task to change too as you will need to either remove the truck bed or drop the fuel tank to get to it.

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

Need to replace the sensor inside the gas tank. I have a 2008 Malibu with the same problem. It was a faulty fuel gauge sensor.

I had the same issue with my 99 Silverado, The sending unit and fuel pump had to be replaced. (the fuel pump and sending unit are one piece units) Chevrolet dealers are aware of this issue, but its still not listed as a recall. I received a lifetime warranty w/labor when I had mine replaced. I also had an issue with the instrument cluster in dash that had to be sent out for repair unrelated to fuel gauge (speedometer)...also dropping the fuel cell is how mine was done also.

My guess would be the fuel pump purchased was bad...

Fuel gauge problem


sending unit on the fuel pump in the tank is stuck, and needs to be replaced. its expensive, but that will fix your issue. its the housing around the pump that has the float arm on it. you can try to free the float arm by removing your pump assembly, but cant guarantee its any good after being stuck

Fuel sensor gauge


you will need to replace the fuel level sensor.(sending unit) it is in the tank and is hooked to the fuel pump. you can buy seperatly from pump. you may finf it easier to remove the bed if you have some help. it is six or eight bolts and harness unplugs then you can get right to it.
