Gas gage stuck on empty

\015 My dad changed my key ignition because my previous one was difficult with my key. I don't know why he bothered doing that. But now my gas gage is stuck on empty and MPH gage also. Anyone know what caused this besides the key ignition being a factor?\015

I would check the fuses first.
