I may have a problem I'm just discovering. It seems my low gas icon light isn't working on my dashboard. I noticed this a couple of days ago when my the last flashing gas gauge square unit was gone -  meaning that I was extremely low on gas, but there was no gas pump Icon light going off on my dashboard.

Looking at this now it furthered my suspicion on a developing problem as my oil gauge light hasn't come on of late as well. I found this strange because I'm more than damn sure I've gone the 600 + miles needed to prompt the light to begin flashing.

Could this be a problem related to a fuse, dashboard bulbs going dead, or a developing problem that may be spreading?

Was the battery disconnected or completely discharged at any time since the last oil change light reset? The 'oil change due light' might possibly reset to zero whenever when power is disconnected or depleted. While the 'fuel low light' is tied into the fuel gauge system there have been some reports of Kymco electronics fouling up when power is lost and re-established (odometers resetting to zero, etc). Whenever power is reconnected on my X-500 the gauge system runs through a reset program. I am just guessing the same is true for other Kymco products so you might try disconnecting the battery for a minute and see if the 'fuel low' light returns.

If you can see paradise by the dashboard lights of a Kwang Yang scooter no way it's accidental or incidental. Most definitely gonna be 'praying for the end of time'.

No, no disconnects of the battery or complete discharge. Everything on the dash is working. As a matter of fact I still need to reset the clock since Daylight Saving Time. My gas is getting low again at this point in the week, so I'm going to keep an eye out to see if the icon goes off.
