How does the 1967-69 Camaro low fuel indicator work?


The low fuel indicator is a small round plastic can containing four wires that is in the gauge package. It is not crucial to the operation of the gauges. In fact, many gauge clusters removed them when they were not functional. The module plugs into the fuel gauge for power, signal, and ground. There is a fourth yellow wire that comes from the module that goes to the dash through the console harness and the dash harness console extension to activate a light in the instrument cluster. However, here is where the problem arises.
The 1967 low fuel module operates by sending a 12 volt power signal on the yellow wire to a single contact bulb mounted in the dash cluster underneath the circuit board. The bulb has grounding tangs that ground the bulb through the instrument cluster body.

The 1968 low fuel module operates by sending a ground signal on the yellow wire to one of the 12 pin instrument cluster connector contacts. This subsequently lights a low fuel indicator bulb through the circuit board connection on the back of the cluster. This circuit board is different for a warning light versus a factory console gauge car.

The 1969 low fuel module operates by sending a ground signal on the yellow wire to a bulb located in the instrument cluster light pods at the bottom of the dash.
The low fuel modules are not interchangeable.
