Sounds like a sending unit on the pump but to replace it you will have to buy a new fuel pump. I hope that helps you out.

My fuel light is not coming on when my gas is low in a 1999 Nissan Sentra also the fuse for the fuel light is not labeled on the panel. how can I identify and check fuse what other things do I need to...

The light gets power from the gauges circuit. And it gets a ground signal from the gas gauge circuit. So if the gas gauge works, the problem could be inside the cluster or the bulb could be faulty.

Battery light/ everything needed to tune up a 99 chevy silverado 1500 v6

The cluster problem could be a bad connection for the harness plug at the back of the cluster. The alternator gets the signal to charge from the warning light, so if there is no power to the cluster the alternator would not charge.
Depending on the mileage, you would replace the plugs, cap and rotor, wires, fuel and air filters, and spark plugs. The filters and plugs at 50,000 miles, and the rest at 75,000 miles or as needed.
The trans fluid and filter should be changed at 100k or less if it is an automatic. Same goes for the coolant, belt, and radiator hoses.

Low on fuel warning light not coming on

My experience is with a 98 and a 99 cavalier but I don't think the changes from 97-98 included the cluster, so here's my experience. There is no designated warning light for the fuel gauge. When the gauge gets to almost empty(just a millimeter or so above empty) the red "check gauges" light will illuminate. I don't know whether you have had the tank this empty or not, but periodic checking of the cluster should make you notice if the level is this low. Hope this helps, it's all I can say with the info posted.

My low gas light is on what could it be causing it 2002 kia rio

This problem may be caused by a bad fuel sending unit, this sending unit operates like a toilet float, it floats on the top of the gas and then sends a signal to the cluster then to gauge, sometimes there will be a problem with the gas reading also, for example it may say you are at 1/4 tank of gas when you have a full tank, or the reading may be correct but the low gas light is on.

you will need to have testing done on this to find out if it is the sending unit or the cluster and last would be to have the wiring tested to the unit, good day

Dashlights and high beams wont come on

Play with the ignition switch,If you can disable the starter when the engine is running and can do it in a very safe manner,this way you can turn the ignition and check to see if a ignition electrical part is failing, If you cant disable the starter just be careful how you turn the ignition you are only ruling out the ignition switch electrical part as possible problem or even the solution
