RE: [DML] Low Fuel Light Malfunction

Tom gives good advice on this topic. I have only opened up a DeLorean fuel tank twice so I am not an expert on the topic or any other DeLorean topic for that matter. I would recommend disconnecting the battery before doing anything gas tank related. Sparks and gasoline fumes can be a lethal combination.  Rod Dillman 10921

Its possible that the problem is not the low fuel light, but your fuel pickup. if your fuel pickup line off the pump is not at the bottom of the tank properly you may "run out of gas" before the fuel level actually gets low enough to turn on the light.

Remove your spare tire, and then remove the fiberglass fuel pump access cover. Clean the area well to prevent contamination. You can then unscrew the retaining ring and lift out the fuel level sender. When you lift it out of the gas, still plugged in, wait for the gas to drain out and see if the low level light comes on, you can verify that it works.
