Could be a bad sending unit (level sensor) in the tank or maybe the float detached itself from the arm. Unfortunately to check this, it's all part of the fuel pump assembly and it requires dropping the tank. Check the connector and connection at the the sending unit at the top of the tank to verify good connection.
