My guess would be it doesn't have one, it doesn't work, or it's very well camouflaged. Chumly

Low Fuel Lights seem to be an American idea, the Japanese seem to feel that a fuel gauge is the right tool to let you know when you are getting low on fuel.

Some cars may have low fuel light lamp slot, but not lamp.
If you have spare time, you can check if there is a slot for that lamp.

I am on my sixth car and all of them have had low fuel indicators, but I have only seen it light up once, and not the time that I ran out of gas. My Ultragauge keeps track of how much fuel I have left and it warns me when I only have twenty miles left (less than a gallon)--every twenty seconds!

Maybe my bulb is out or there is some other problem, but a quick search indicated that the light is not very useful, but I would look into your car.

People always tell me to not let my fuel tank get low, but since gas is expensive and my grocery store gives me a discount on gas, I try to wait as long as I can before filling up. Once I have one gallon left, it starts sputtering if I accelerate too hard.
