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
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.
