05 Jeep GC has no yellow low fuel lamp indicator?

Hi to everyone,

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee rocky mountain edition and noticed that even when i am at 0 miles to empty i do not have a yellow fuel lamp indicator it just says low fuel in the EVIC, was this not on the instrument cluster in 05? thanks

Probably just a 2005 thing and they added it in 2006+

Re: 05 Jeep GC has no yellow low fuel lamp indicator?

There is a low fuel light on the 05's. The EVIC's are known to be notoriously safe when it comes to the DTE range. I drove my WK 50+ miles when it says 0 DTE. I had a 2005 WK and can confirm that a low fuel light came on, usually when there was about 2 gallons left in the tank. IIRC the '05's have a 20.1 gallon tank. I remember putting around 18 in when my light came on.

^x2

0 miles until empty is pretty much the low fuel light since it shouldn't ever run it dry

Re: 05 Jeep GC has no yellow low fuel lamp indicator?

ya it also alarms you when it hits low fuel around 5 miles to empty, so thats just as good as any indicator..if not better

Re: 05 Jeep GC has no yellow low fuel lamp indicator?

thanks quays for the input, I know the EVIC tells me when I'm low of fuel and don't really argue with it either lol i was just curious b/c my buddy has an 07 but his light comes on when the EVIC says low fuel at the same time... so investigated the problem with a flashlight to the dash and found there is not light for low fuel at all.... must be an 05 thing.
