No dome lights fuel gauge says below E and low fuel light comes on

(2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac)
in Camp Verde, AZ on April 28, 2012
Had the fuel pump changed out and now the fuel gauge doesnt register (it stays below E) on the dash and low fuel light is on all the time though there is plenty of fuel. Dome lights inside and bed light are out too since the fuel pump was replaced... I am thinking fuses but dont know which ones are out. Can you tell me which ones to check?

Ah!! The infamous Sports Trac! The related fuse is no. 26 on the fuse block on the left side of the dashboard. But, still this may NOT be your problem. On changing the fuel pump, the gauge sending unit may have dislodged. When you turn the ignition ON, does the fuel gauge needle tend to move down? I found that a tankful of non-ethenol fuel will sometimes resolve the whole issue.
Good luck and please let me know the outcome.
