Rick I almost ran away from home trying to get my low fuel light to work but after laying on my back under the dash and staring at that bulb socket long enough, I realized somehow either factory or previous owner had wired that bulb of mine with a black and yellow wire.
As Mark has said, that low fuel is a grounding system to finish the circuit, but I had 2 grounds, black and yellow. So I would never get a positive flow no matter what. I took my black wire, cut it and spliced in an orange from the fuse box and presto it worked like a charm. Not saying you will find that but double check your HOT wire at that bulb and make sure it has 12v with the key ON. If not, get the 12v over there, then try your ground YELLOW from the sender.
