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

should be, possible the bulb is burnt out.

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

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

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

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.
