Fuel system doesn't read driver tank

Hello all,

My driver's side fuel tank doesn't read any level on my fuel gauge. IOW, when I fill up the tank, my cluster gauge only goes to half full. As I use fuel when the tank gets to about half full, the gauge seems normal.

I ran the 6, 6.1 & 6.2 cluster tests. The driver's side tank indicates 0.0 lts of fuel (with a full tank). I replaced the fuel level sender and checked the resistance across the sender leads, the sender is fine. (unfortunately, I found this out after purchasing a new one - my old one is working normal too).

No blown fuses, nor cluster test test issues.

Does anyone know how to test the cable that attaches to the fuel level sender?
