HELP :) dash problems

I pulled my dash out today to see if i could fix my stopped oddometer and trip meter. Now the fuel gauge wont work. When i turn the key on (which is when they normally display the level of fuel) it goes straight up to the bottom of the red bit (ie moves bout 5 mm) and yeah, the tank is full for sure. Now everything has been put back together exactly the way it came out, so im kinda stumped, ive pulled everything out and put it back in again, same deal, although at one stage it went straight to max setting, and its not that full, should be just under the 'Full Line' but yeah, it maxed out the gauge.
Any thoughts?
Im kinda sad and pissed off with myself, should have just left it!!!!

Check that the plugs in the back of the dash are fully seated and all the wiring harness is plugged in. I suspect the plug at the back of the dash is not fully seated.
