Hi, my name is ***** ***** this is caused by abad instrumen t cluster and is very common, we do alot if them, to verify this, remove the instrument cluster, but leave it plugged in, then probe the green wire coming out of the instrument cluster, it should have voltage with the key on, if it does not, then the cluster is bad and will need to be replaced, As I said, this is very common when the P0462 is set and the gauge reads full,Tim

Hi there, I would like to add a little input on this also.
These sending units use resistance depending on the fuel level to determine a voltage output. Your getting the code because the sender is not producing a voltage to the ECM.
One thing we see happen from time to time is the wire in the harness that runs up by the drivers side rear wheel breaks. So you get no voltage and the high reading at the cluster.
Another something to keep in mind.
