On my 93 Chevy caprice the dash lights and cluster won't work. Gas gauge went so far up that I can no longer see it.

First check and see if the dash light dimmer control on the headlight switch is turned down all the way, which shuts off the dash lights. As far as the gas gage goes that is more then likely a defective gas tank fuel level sending unit.

i put gas in my car and the gas hand fell to empty and when i turn the car off the gas hand comes up on my 94 caprice

Sounds like you need a new fuel sending unit. It is a big job because the device is located inside the gas tank. You have to drain it, drop the tank, replace unit and reinstall the tank.

My gas Hand is stuck on full in my 94 chevy Caprice what do I need to do

It's possible that the sending unit in the tank went bad, or the gauge in your cluster stuck. You can begin by testing the sending unit and seeing if its sending a proper signal.
If it's fine, then I would look into having the cluster checked or replaced. This is all assuming the wiring harness hasn't been tampered with.
Goodluck and please rate
