LOW TANK ALERT CHIME

1998 Dodge Caravan

Electrical problem
1998 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 134000 miles

My gas gauge swings wildly after it reaches 3/4 tank or less, and constantly sets off the alert chime. Is there a way to turn off the chime until I can get the fuel sensor replaced?

2. After diagnostic code display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order:  Dim test.
 Calibration test.
 Odometer segment test.
 Electronic Transmission Range indicator segment test.
