low fuel warning light

Hi, on my 71 caprice I have a low fuel warning light. Does anyone know if the light should come on as a "bulb" check or only when low on fuel. I replaced the old one with one for a 69 camaro since my part is no onger available but don't know if it's working or not. Please help, Thanks.

Hummmmmmm I'd say try filling the tank first J/K
I think all the functioning car accessory light bulbs should turn on with the key and go off as the car starts and the key returns to the run position.

Re: low fuel warning light

I have doubts with the low fuel light....
I'm thinking it doesn't on my cars?
How low have you gotten the fuel? I'd think it should be on with 1/8 tank if not sooner.

Re: low fuel warning light

Hello everyone. I've been meaning to answer this question for the longest time. Well after much research I have found that the low fuel warning lamp on the 1971 Chevy Caprice does in fact come on as a bulb check to allow the driver to know that the system is working.
