Not sure about the '00, but on the newer models that happens if you don't have the fuel level guage connector connected.

Have you tried disconnecting the battery to let it reset?

Bottom of the tank. You should have two wire connectors plugged into it.

121 miles - you're about on fumes.

IF its the same as the '98, you will find a green connector behind the LHS plastic tank infill (Bottom rear edge of tank). That is the connector for the Fuel level Sensor.

If this is plugged in, it sounds like time to check all the loom connectors, check the internal connections are clean, none burnt and apply dielectric/silicone grease.

See THIS thread.
