    I think the light is supposed to come on when the OBC shows a range of less than 20 miles. Can someone verify that? In any case, you are safe to drive until the range shows a blinking "------" It comes on right after your range shows 9 mi left. If your light isn't on then it's surely in need of replacement.

      For me it comes on when the tank is at 7.5l or less. I try not to drive it with that little gas in it though. I've only gotten it down to ------ once. If you didn't know, you can check out the gas level by pressing in the 1 and 1000 key at the same time on the OBC.

        You guys never answered the question lol! Let's say the bulb is dead. Which bulb is it to be replaced? :idea:

          Uhh, maybe the one behind the gas gauge? It's probably a bulb that's just like the other bulbs back there.
