1) Low fuel warning light

The fuel gauge shows the approximate amount of fuel remaining in the tank. When the ignition switch is in the LOCK or Acc position, the fuel gauge shows E even if the fuel tank contains fuel.

The gauge may move slightly during braking, turning or acceleration due to fuel level movement in the tank.

If you press the trip knob while the ignition switch is in the LOCK or Acc position, the fuel gauges dial will light up and the needle will indicate the amount of fuel remaining in the tank.

If, while the fuel gauge needle is indicating the amount of fuel remaining in the tank, you (a) do not press the trip knob for 10 seconds or (b) open and close the drivers door, the fuel gauge needle will drop to the E position and the dial and needle will turn off.
