69 camaro. When parked last everything worked. sat for a few months or longer and now fuel gauge stuck on full and spedo does not work.I hope the spedo is a stuck, broken cable. Fuel gauge is my problem. How do I determine the cause. Tank is basically empty.

Is it reading full or over full? Over full is an indication that the ground circuit is interrupted somewhere. Disconnected wire, broken wire, etc.

Friends don’t let friends drive Fords.

Thanks Jay. Kinda what I thought. Don't know how that would happen by just sitting. Some day I'll be able to get back to it to hopefully solve the problem.
