Fueling & Injection - running out of gas...
03-25-2003, 12:29 AM
My check gages light turns on right before it runs out. can this be a bad sensior? or is there a way to program the pcm to turn the light on sooner? I always read my gages but some times... i get to the point that if i had the light pop on sooner will be nice. any ideas? <img border="0" alt="[worship]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_hail.gif" />

Its kinda odd yours don't turn on sooner. Mine turns on and I can drive for about 20 more min.

Hrmmm, mine comes on and gives me PLENTY of time before I run out. On the other hand, I've never pushed my luck once the light comes on. <img border="0" alt="[chug]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_chug.gif" />

Whoops... forgot my suggestion. I don't know for sure, but LS1edit MIGHT have the ability to turn that light on sooner. I can't say for sure, but you'd have to check with someone very familiar with the system.

lol.. mine comes on when it's about to back fire.. there has to be some type of setting or sensor... yes?

We have a low fuel light? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" />

I also fill up at about 1/4 tank.

my light comes on as soon as the needle hits the red spot in the gauge. As soon as this happens i fill up. But just so u know when i worked in the dealership, i noticed that the blazers did that to. the check gauges light came on for fuel and u were only able to drive about two blocks before u stalled
with the way these cars fuel pumps are cooled by the gas in the tank, i reccomend filling up at 1/4 of a tank, if not before.
In the last 12K i have put on my car in 6 months, i have never seen a light come on cause of gas.
