The gauge does has wires.The top wire is the lamp, then (in order) Send, Ground, Ignition (Power).
It gets power, it's on Empty when it is turned off and when I enable the ignition it slowly moves all the way to Full, which is why I think it's a sender problem, it has to be measuring infinite resistance because the sender is faulty, I just can't find the darn thing.
Unless there's a different way to troubleshoot a faulty gauge, when I turn off the gauge it falls slowly back to Empty.
