pt cruiser fuel gauge not working properly

I have an 01 PT Cruiser. when you turn the key on, the gauge goes to half full, stays there for a few seconds and then drops to empty. I have replaced the fuel pump and it is still doing the same thing.

From what I've been reading it appears to a sender issue. You changed the pump. Did you change the entire in-tank assembly including the sender and the pump ?

Does that instrument cluster use 'stepper motors'? Could be a bad one.
