Default gas gauge not working

Yesterday while welding patches on my floor I disconnected my battery. I reconnected it and now my gas gauge is not working,the needle is below e with the ******* light on. The tank is about 3/4 full. All the other gauges are working. Anyone have any ideas

If I did burn through a wire for the gas gauge,why would the gas light still be on?

what part of the floors were you welding? the gas gauge wires run along the drivers side below the doors and go through the floor under the back seat. anything else not working too?
