Hi Tim:
Usually it comes on when something is wrong. Like its running hot or its not charging or oil pressure it's low (40-60 psi). Look at all the gauges one it's likely in a danger zone.

Hope helps.

SOURCE: Reverse gear on 1988 Chevy C1500 automatic transmission

sounds like the reverse clutch is shot, pull the pan and look for allot of grey material in the pan, some is normal but a big pile is trouble, if it is not to bad change the fluid and filter and use the new DEXRON 6 fluid, it is compatable with all GM automatics, keep your fingers crossed and it should give you a little while longer before u need an overhaul..

SOURCE: Driver side window

If you look at the fuse panel there are two silver 30 amp fuses on the right side or there should be. they are in the blocks marked POWER with the arrows pointing to the right. One is for the windows the other is for the power door locks. Not sure which is which try both hope this helps.

SOURCE: oil pressure gauge stays at top, about 80 psi, is this normal

80 is on the high side for those... possibly a sending unit issue

Break light....


There's a switch on your emergency brake that the indicator (on your dashlight) operates from. Sometimes it slips in its bracket and gets out of adjustment causing your dash light to stay on. Its located on the upper part of your emergency brake pedal. Hope this works for you. Goodluck.
