The sending unit is in the tank. Its possible it failed, but I'd be more apt to think its an electrical problem at the sender than the sender failing. Check all the electrical connections to the sender. Check the grounds for good contact, too.
I dont think the 02's had problems with the gauges failing, like the 03-04s do. I'm not totally sure, though.
There is no "fuel pump" in the Dmax fuel system. Its a "vacuum" system, with the engine fuel injection pump pulling fuel from the tank. It is a good idea to add a lift pump to the system to help the Cp3 do its job, especially when upping the power levels.
