[DML] Re: Low Fuel Light Malfunction



It sounds like it is working fine to me.

I would guess the fuel level is reading a bit low on the gauge. I had 
one like that - when the light came on the gauge read below empty and 
I needed to find gas quick.

If you installed an OEM - some were more accurate than others as 
there were apparently a couple of improvements throughout the 
production cycle. Early ones in my experience read somewhat low but 
the light worked correctly. When the light comes on you're nearly out.
