99 MERCEDES SLK 230--LOW FUEL LIGHT FLASHING

1999 Mercedes Benz SLK230 • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic •

99 SLK 230 w 128k-- LOW FUEL LIGHT FLASHES BUT CAP IS ON TIGHT. CEL NOT on. After car has been running 10-15 minutes and I first stop at a light for more than 1 minute, the low fuel light starts flashing. It will continue to flash until engine is shut off and won't come back on again until cycle has repeated. This light always comes on and stays on until refueling when tank is low, but owner'sw manual says "flashing" indicates loose gas cap. I have even replaced the cap, since the rubber washer on the old one was worn, but new one didn't change anything. Anyone have any ideas+

You need to have the fuel level sensor checked its in the fuel tank
