LH side of the block. It's a round thing about 50mm in dia, has two
terminals. One - analogue sender, second - on-off idiot light switch. Was
~$50 in my case this Summer.
You have a slim hope that maybe just a wire came loose or the terminal is
badly corroded and you are getting an intermittent contact on the bumps.
If not - you'll have to replace the whole bloody thing.

You'll also need a special socket to do that.
