Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

It sounds like you have a bad fuel tank sending unit, but to verify this you will need to see what codes are setting and then drop the tank and ohm the sending unit.. The sending unit is mounted on the side of the fuel pump module which means you will need to drop the fuel tank to replace it..

I hope this helps,

Brad
