The fuel pump is submerged in gas in the tank. The liquid gas keeps it from overheating. If the fuel pump was run in an almost dry tank and is the original pump, it may have gone bad. On many cars you can hear the pump run for a few seconds when the key is placed in the start position without starting the engine.

SOURCE: 2000 Buick Century gas gauge reads full all the time

You're either looking at a short in the wire that goes to the fuel sender, or a bad fuel sender. If it was just a broken wire, it would read empty instead. The fuel sender is a permanent part of the fuel pump, so that has to be replaced as a unit.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter located for Buick Century 2001

The fuel filter is located underneath the car in front of the gas tank.
You have release the fuel pressure. Remove the fuel filler cap, locate the fuel test port on the fuel rail on the passenger side on the end of the right real fuel rail for a 3.1L engine.
3.8L engine yhr test port is located at the pressure regulator under the trim cover.

Gm cars are common for having defective fuel tank sending units in the tank. Yours likely needs replaced.

It is in the side cover on the valve body. The transmission needs to be removed to access the solenoids.

Sound like your fuel pump went out. Turn the key to on postion and see if you can hear it turn on in the gas tank. It will be a whinning sound in the gas tank. If nothing it is you fuel pump need to be replaced.

Does the culster board control the gas indicator as will as the millege


Yes, the gas gauge works with the digital gas information on the cluster. So if your gauge is malfunctioning, your gas info in the digital cluster will be a misreading.

Ran out of gas now will not start


There should be a fuse for the fuel pump check this first. If fuse is good you will probably need a pump. The fuel pump is cooled by being in the fuel. When ran low or out of fuel the pump gets hot and will blow a fuse or overheat and quit.
