    So You want us to come around and fix the problem?

    Step 1, Drive to your nearest Holden dealership.
    Step 2, pay them to fix the problem.

    Problem solved!

    I can't help those that can't help themselves!

    Just a friendly bit of advice because you're a newbie on the forum
    It's not a real smart move to be getting cocky and giving attitude to the moderators....They rule the roost around here whether you like it or not

    The fuel gauge thing is a known fault. You should be able to find it from doing a Search.

    Except the problem is with the fuel level sender unit.

    Yes. The fuel sender works by resistance, a broken connection (or unplugging) basically shows the same as a full tank. I did mention that in my very first reply to your querry.

    omg
    do you want to listen to people who know what they're talking about
    or anybody that has an opinion
    also please proof read what you type
    half of what you write does not make sense
    it is not the pump
    it is not the fuel pump relay
    do you own a multimeter and know how to use one
    if you plan on doing work on any car especially a modern one, it is a necessity
    at the plug to the fuel pump
    measure the voltage on the tan wire and the black/yellow wire
    too lazy to look up the values but tan is the ground wire, black/yellow should be between 0v and 5v depending on how much fuel you have
    it is possibly the cluster but that would be the least most likely item
    most common is the sender, but assuming you fitted a good quality pump/sender unit and did not bend the float arm then next choice would be a broken wire as already mentioned
    but using a multimeter you will be able to diagnose 100% in a couple of hours
    edit fuel gauge is a 5v signal

    At this stage all I can probably suggest is you go back to your Fords, clearly Holdens are to difficult.

    Good luck!
