    I think the gauge failed in the dash but Autozone has the wiring diagram on their website

    I've heard the Ranger's and Explorer's it's most commonly the sending unit. I found this in a google search so you can test your gauge and sending unit.

    It might be a cracked fuel filler hose. Without the correct pressure in the tank the fuel probe malfunctions.
