Default Gas light after spark plug change?

I just did a spark plug change on my 2007 WRX and when I got in the car to start it up the gas light came on and stayed on. I let the motor warm up to operating temp and it was still on. I unplugged the battery, let it sit for a while then plugged the battery back up and started the car again with the gas light still on. What could be causing this? The motor is running fine, holds idle great. Nothing else is abnormal except the gas light. Thanks for any suggestions.

Haha. Not a stupid question, I should have said in my original post. I have half a tank.

well, your gauge says you have half a tank. How much do you really have? The only way to tell is to either drain the tank, or go fill up and do some math. Maybe your gauge is broken.

Also, check for any wires that may have been messed with/left unplugged when you last tinkered with it.

I'm not quite sure how changing spark plugs could have anything to do with the fuel gauge.

I also don't see a need to remove any grounds. shrug.
