Default FUEL GAUGE 93 CIVIC EX SENDING UNIT OR GAUGE DEFECTIVE ??

Just bought the car, the fuel gauge always stays on full. Wondering
what is most likely the problem.

Thanks in advance!

=======================

I had a stinkin' FORD that I soldered a resistor on the backside of the
cluster so it would stay that way. Otherwise it would jump around and
click against the bottom E. It was the sender.

You may just have a disconnected / broken wire, or short to ground. Just
unplug the sender to confirm, isn't it under the rear seat in that one?

you need to trace back the circuit. before you do that though, look
under the car and check the tank for dents - if dented, the internal
baffles of the tank could be bent and the float stuck.
