The low fuel indicator light socket in my car's gauge cluster has a small fiber optic cable that appears to go to the top/center of the cluster. The tip of the fiber needs an adapter but my question is if that hole in the top of the gauges needs a colored lens and what color. Right now it doesn't have anything in the hole, but I can duplicate one if needed. Also whats the deal to have two indicators in the gauges for the same pupose.

Are you sure that is not the high beam indicator?

I think what you are refering to is the fiber optic ash tray light. It gets the light from the dash cluster and sends it to the ash tray.

Maybe someone before moved the light socket and placed it in the low fuel position then.But the fiber is around 10 inches long and it's not going to reach the ash tray anyway.
