    Default Fuel Light Not Coming On

    Hello all, i have a 1.8 petrol when my fuel gets low the fuel light does not come on, this only started happening a week ago, i filled it up again and its low and the fuel light has not come on, i let it run quite low to the point where it would start flashing but nothing happened, any ideas what would be causing this?

    Thanks

    It should come on as a check light when you first turn the key.

    Does it?

    might be teaching my granny to suck eggs here, but my low fuel light doesnt come on steady until the needle gets a little bit past the start of the red section. it starts to flash when it get to about halfway through the red section.

    have you had the needle go past the red section with no warning light? as Big Dave says, im sure the light comes on as a check when you turn the ignition on.

    No, the fuel light does not come on as power up system test

    The only time it comes on is when there is less than 7 litres left in the tank, and then starts to flash at 4 litres
    Hence why it does not come on at start up
    Even my previous Vectra B was the same, perhaps due to the duplicate fuel monitoring system (Driver Info Centre)

    Yours might not, but as previously mentioned, mine does.

    I've no idea why the vid is upsidedown. It wasn't recorded like that. Something must have happened with the upload to imageshack.
