it comes on when you're about 1 1/2 - 1 gallon left, on your tank.

First does the DX even come with a gas light? Check to see if you do.

The dx does not come with a gas light. Trust i have taken mine down to less than half a tank and Have taken apart the guage cluster there is no light. Your friends ex may have it but our dx's do not

I'm pretty sure Eran talked to somene and figured out his gas light on his '97 CX hatch should work... I could be wrong, but I doubt it. It's such a small thing that I doubt it would save anyone money or lower the selling price of the vehicle at all (which it was sold as a cheaper model than some of the sedans and coupes in the US).

If the CX is supposed to have one, I'd imagine the DX is supposed to also.

You know, the cluster in my EX had a little picture of a gas pump in the cluster and that b***h never came on. :what:

It's not that important....quit being lazy and look at your gauges once in awhile :lol:

Oh yeah, It has nothing to do with the physical pump itself. Maybe the pump assembly and sender
