Fuel Guage help

Guys I need help as I'm stumped. I have a 02 lariat 4x4 7.3. I've been driving the truck all day without issues. When I got home I had a nice brown box waiting for me from Riffraff with my 6637 filter kit. I disconnected the battery, removed the sensors, and the air box. I installed the filter and ran to start the car just to be met with a fuel Guage not reading. There isn't a fuse for it and then I ran out of light this afternoon? Has this happened to anyone as one has nothing to do with the other?

Thanks in advance.

Did the truck start and it's just a bad gauge, or do you not have any fuel pressure?

Where does the gauge get it's power from? If it's electric, was it powered by the battery you disconnected?

Well I let the truck run for a while to see if it was the pump and I ran fine. I decided to push the envelope and drive it to dinner. The whole way there it was on and the car ran fine. After dinner I started the truck and everything was back to normal... I guess my fuel sending unit might be starting to fail so I'll keep an eye on it.

Thanks for the reply.
