the actual fuel gauge might be dead, you should be able to pull your other one out and swap it over.

Best wishes

I used to have a XF Ghia (until those low life scum sucking pigs stole it). With a similar problem, only the gauge would read full all the time. It turned out the sensors are easily upset by moisture.
2 things to check for. 1 is it the right sensor, I think the eletrioncic dash used a different sensor. 2. Try putting 2 litres of Metho (don't drink it) into your fuel tank, it absorbs any mositure.
Good luck

Capacitance type fuel gauges

A system that was designed to be used on aircraft where the fuel quality is a lot better than what we get from our local petrol station where tanks can be forty even fifty years old. The short answer is they don’t like contaminated fuel.
