1989 nissan stanza: cylinder..gas tank..light it runs fine

Customer Question

I have a 1989 nissan stanza 4 cylinder car .What it is doing is regardless if the gas tank is full the low fuel light comes on randomly when you start it and if it does the car dies. Ive checked the fuel pump,filters,pressure,and all seems okay.looked at a wiring diagram but could not find any evidence that they have any so i have no idea whats wrong. the weird part is that if the low fuel light doesnt come on when you start it it runs fine ???

My opinion on this issue is, a big possibility that either the fuel lever sending unit is at fault, or the floater of the fuel level is acting up and shutting down the pump.
