1995 E320 Fuel Sending unit

my gas gauge is dead. I'm sure it's a wire problem. the gauge reserve light comes on with the 2nd position of the key, but no fuel level reading, is there much to this system or should I try replacing the sender and going from there?

Sending unit is a basic variable resistor..full is about 5 ohms & empty is about 85 ohms.

ok, how does it connect up with the gauge on the dash? can anything happen between the sender and the gauge? or should I just replace it and go from there?
