It does...Mine does and it's a 92. I think they just fail a LOT. There is a sensor on the fuel pump that doesn't work worth a crap. You have to replace the fuel pump. I just look at the gauge and keep track of my mileage and don't go too far. Much easier fix IMO.

Replace the fuel pump to get the low fuel warning light to work? Jeez that's a pain in the ass. Didn't think it would be something like that but I'll check them out and see how much they go for. Thanks man.

You dont have to replace the fuel pump to fix the problem. Just the sending unit it attaches to. Which is around $90 at the dealer. This will and should fix the fuel gauge fluctuation problem as well.

I was wondering the same thing, I ran my first tank pretty low & never got a light. Never paid attention at if there was even one. I just refuel around 275 miles
