what is your skill level? to determine the fault (it could be the cluster OR wiring you will need to be able to follow a wiring diagram and use a digital volt/ohm meter to get some voltage readings AT the sending unit connector.with the lift pump unplugged what does the gauge read?I will DEFINITLY need the full vin to get the correct wiring diagram

well the cluster is the instrument cluster ( a computer) and i'm sorry there rarely is a "miracle fix" to diagnosis, there has to be some tests done to get the proper the saying goes, good repairs are rarely cheap and cheap repairs are rarely good

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!It's going to take some electrical testing to determine exactly what is going on. Possible causes are the instrument cluster, wiring, the sender, or possibly the TIPM (module/fuse box under the hood.The TIPM is where you'd be looking for fault codes regarding the fuel sender and you may not have that capability. What did you use to check for codes?Where did the replacement transfer pumps come from?
