Another low fuel light question.

I replaced the highbeam and low fuel bulbs that had burned out on my 1969 and started the car to test the new bulbs. The low fuel light stays on all the time, even with more than half a tank of gas. Where might the problem be located and how would I fix it? Thanks.

Re: Another low fuel light question.

i had the same problem. i put a resister in line on the output side of the gauge. i had to play around with different size resisters until i found the right one.

I'll give it a try. Do you remember the size? Thanks Brett.
