Default Fuel Level Circuit Malfunction P0460

Hi everyone, hope can get some help on this.
I have a Kia Sephia 2001 and I got the code P460, Fuel Level Circuit Malfunction. I am lost with this, I don't know what it is. Could anyone help me?

What does it mean? What should I check?
I have a Haynes book and it shows me the Fuel pressure tank sensor but doesn't show me where is a level sensor.

Thanks for any help.

The circuit is located on the assembly under the back seat that has the fuel pump and tank sensor assembly.


I think it is hanging of to the side there.

** Hope that helps **

Oops - forgot to mention "the best part" ---- I was getting the same and found out I got some bad gas.
The computer could not understand so 2 tanks later till running like crap and giving 460+134 codes... Ran till empty - got best gas I could find ** -> the KEY **-> Unplugged the battery for a full 20 minutes, checked every wire for grounding issue (none really found) --- everything is great now.
Mileage went down for that tank but then came back to normal.

Kia - driving and fixing/fixing and driving.
Best car is the one without payments.
