92 prelude no gas gauge but working temp gauge.

So I just got a low mileage 1 owner prelude si to keep as a collector piece. It has some minor problems that can be fixed easily mainly cosmetic. However the gas gauge shows absolutely nothing and the owner claims it was filled up. I havent done any diving into it yet nor have I verified it has gas. (I know i know chexk that first.) Ill be taking a 5 gallon gas can with me just to make sure. If that doesnt fix it is it most likely a sending unit or just a bad ground? Excited to have the car and hope to enjoy it for many years to come.

One other thing I forgot to mention is that the car comes with a full service history from day one.

Does the gauge light up, and shows empty, or does it just not light up?

I got time to play with it yesterday after bringing it home and i pulled the cover off the sending unit in the trunk and found a broken wire. Spliced it bqck together and it works perfect now.
