Guage reads full most of the time. Ocassionaly will go to empty when tank is low. I removed the harness in the trunk from the sending unit @ gauge still reads full with ignition switch is on.

Likely the fuel tank guage sensor is faulty. With it unpluged from tank unit it is normal for the dash guage to go to full or past full. The wire to the guage unit when its grounded the dash guage would go to empty.
