This sounds more like a damaged wire shorting out against the frame than a sending unit. My old Volkswagen did the same thing, and with it, the wire from the tank had become corroded with road salt. This may very well be your problem as well, and if so, a simple wire replacement can solve your problem!

Pull the DTCs (error codes) from the system via a scan tool and post them here - this is usually related to failing sensors or connectors on the transaxle.

The car's computer might have entered into a "Limp Mode". The computer probably detected an abnormal condition dangerous for the engine/transmission and protects it from damge but allowing you to reach home or a service shop. The computer should be scanned for OBDII codes for trouble diagnose. Hope this helps.

The control knob is faulty..the dash must be removed to access the control switch and knobs..This is a moderately complcated repair,and somethng alway breaks,as there are plastic snaps on the dash that pop in and out,but once done will rattle forever..a couple screws hold in th dimming switch and a wire plugs into it,un plug,and snap in new unit..word...these can be as much as $100..or more a cheap mini light mouted aimed at the gages can be easier,plugged into cig lighter,and wire concealed in dash contour..and the come in cool colors Good luck
