My 2000 Accord Coupe's fuel low level warning light has not worked in a few years. Your's lasted longer than mine. I haven't taken it in to be repaired because I always buy gas when the milage on the 'A' trip counter reaches 320. I reset it at every fill up.The low fuel light doesn't come on when the engine is not running...unless you actually have a low fuel condition.
The light quit working on my 2001 Accord as well. Never did troubleshoot it to figure out what happened. I suspect it was a wiring issue.
I've never seen mine go on and had the needle down to "E". My car at that point take 14 1/2 gallons or so.According to the wiring diagram the switch for the low fuel light is part of the fuel tank sending unit. Dont know if mine works or not, I've never run it that low to find out.
ThisThere have been threads about this before... seems like a pretty common issue
I've had mine just slightly below the "E" line on several occasions and it'll fill up with 16 gallons +/- 0.2 gallons.I've never seen mine go on and had the needle down to "E". My car at that point take 14 1/2 gallons or so.
When my car gets to the "E" line, it is around 14.5 gallons. I remember another time I did this, I flipped the headlights on/off and then it suddenly turned on for that instance. After I fueled up, I have not been able to get the light back on. Could it be the sensor or something along those lines?The first thing you can do to troubleshoot is to simply replace the bulb. If a new bulb doesn't work still, then it'll be something else as previously mentioned; the sending unit, bad fuse, bad wiring, etc.
BTW, mine has been out since I bought my car in June of 2007 with 108k miles on the clock.
