Check the fuses first but if the other gauges work the fuses are most likely OK (most common failure is the fuel tank sender unit). If you can't find the owner's manual to identify the fuses check here http://repairpal.com/automobile-owners-manuals-online or try this link you may be able to down load a free copy of the owner's manual for your vehicle http://www.autousermanual.com/
To get diagnostic trouble shooting guides you need a work shop manual
