Default low fuel light

First time posting, Thanks to all. Hope I do this correctly. Low fuel light always on(& ck engine light). Dealer says need new sending unit($882). Can the low fuel indicator be turned off, so the computer won't see it and turn on the ck engine light. I can figure my mileage without a stupid light. Dealer says the computer will still turn on ck engine light when it senses the no fuel light gauge is not connected. I'd like the ck engine light to still work for other parts of the vehicle, but don't really need the low fuel light. Any ideas?
Thanks, lfeather:

I would have it fixed but not by a dealer, Go aftermarket and to a shop if you cant do it yourself

thanks XLT. I think I'm beyond warranty. I'll check for a TSB.
