1997 oldsmobile 88
My low fuel light doesn't come on. i couldn't find a fuse just for that, but the dash fuse is fine. so i'm thinkin its the bulb. if this is correct can anyone tell me how to get the dash board off so i can get to the bulb. or any easy way to get to the bulb? Please Help!! Thank You.

Dumb question, but how do you know the light does not work? (unless you have actually run out of gas) In most cars the light is never on so not likely to burn out either. On most of these the low fuel light will not come on right away even of the tank is dead empty. It's a long story but there's a built in delay of several minutes after you turn the key on so difficult to trouble shoot.

Second dumb question is why would you bother fixing it on a 14 year old car? If the gauge doesn't work that's another story but that's likely where the problem is anyway.

Try this.... and set up a free account. From there you can find helpful hints and various diagrams for your vehicle, which may point you in the right direction faster than I can.

Let us know how you make out.
