Fuel gauge needle swinging full to empty to full; next time 2000 Escalade won't start
Towed to dealer. Replaced fuel pump, electronic sensor (?), changed fuel filter and cleaned injectors. Ran fine. 2 days later, same thing. Towed to dealer. They re-checked and tightened all their work - could not find cause. Ran fine for an hour before gauge acted up again, swinging all the way to empty and then back - then back to empty. Next time I went to start the car, it would not start.
Battery is fine. I tried a different ignition key, released the gas cap - still would not start. Just had it towed in again. 125,000 miles - great running until now.
Issue seems connected to the fuel gauge as when it begins acting up, within 1-2 days it won't start. Any thoughts here?

Update: Dealer found the new fuel pump they installed was faulty. Fixed now.
