2 things come to mind check the negative terminal of battery and the ground wire connected to engine location varies where they connect these but will always originate from neg on battery a quick check to see if you have a proper ground connection is to take one booster cable and connect to neg post on battery and connect the other end to the engine on clean metal (be sure to keep clear of moving parts ) start engine and see if you have pressure on gage if so you must clean ground connection to engine .if this does not correct possible bad sending unit in side of block with one wire connected to it . caution ** temperature sending unit look similar so make sure with one you are taking out

On my 93 Dodge Caravan ES 3.3L, when it comes to a stop and idles (at a light mostly) the check gauges light comes on. When the check gauges light comes on the oil gauge is at the bottom. When I tap...


Okay What it means is that the oil in your car is either low in level or the oil pressure at low revolutions is low. I highly recommend you to stop driving the car when this happen because you can internally damage the engine with a low oil or a low pressure of oil. Check the oil level first..make sure level is fine and oil looks good. Black and burned oil will give you a low oil pressure as well. If it happen that your car need a oil change. Make sure you get it done and see if the problem goes away. Very rarely oils pressure sensor goes bad but if oil is new and level is fine you can take the oil pressure sensor and connect a tester for a oil pressure. If this is not under the manufacturer specifications.. oil pump is worn out and you have to replace it for a new one.
Good luck and don't forget to rte me. Thanks

Check guages light keeps coming on when i am in park or have my foot on the breaks it is a 2002 chevy trailblazer.


I would check my oil pressure gauge and the oil level as well. the fuel level guage also malfunctions on those models so make sure it is working properly and not floating from full to empty that will cause the light to come on as well as overheating of the engine(low coolant levels)low oil level,low fuel level,and low charging volts from your alternator.if all is well suspect a short in dash.

Oil pressure light came on, what does this mean?


Usally low oil level, low oil pressure, or possibly a defective sending unit. You may want to hook up an oil pressure "wet" gauge to check the actual oil pressure.

I have an 1983 olds cutlass and the guage cluster is not working properly the oil temp and gas is not readind but the tach speedometer and battery is what could be the problem


Worn out gauges would be the first guess. The next would be the oil pressure sensor....

The gas gauge could have problems from a bad float in the gas tank or the wires to the sending unit are badly deteriorated.

1996 Explorer 4wd sport - oil pressure


I would use 10W-30W, but that should not make the oil pressure read low, have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical test guage, if it tests within normal range then start by replacing the oil pressure sending unit.

Guages on 87 olds cutlass are not working properly. fuel does not work, temperature works but goes strainght to hot as soon as the car warms up, amp gueage discharging oil pressure not working


Hi, you will have to replace all sending units for these gauges in order to restore them to there original state. i will list the sending units and there respective locations below.

1. Fuel gauge sending unit- you will need to replace the fuel sending unit on your Olds. its located inside the actual fuel tank. there's a floater attached to this Assembly and , its broken. you will have to replace the entire assembly. you will also have to drop the fuel tank to access it as well.

2. Temp guage-- normally when this guage starts to malfunction, its because of a bad coolant temperature sensor. Inspect the sensor's wires and connections. ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor problems are often caused by faulty wiring or loose or corroded connections rather than the failure of the sensor itself. If the wires or connections are bad, replace them. If you think the sensor is defective, it should be tested.

This sensor is located Under hood, center, upper engine area, front of carburetor, passenger side of water outlet, mounted in intake manifold.

3. Amp gauge --- OK, this can be caused by a bad voltage regulator. i would also trace every single wire from the amp gauge to the sensor and regulator. check for corroded connectors and contact clips. replace any wire that may seem worn.

4. Oil pressure gauge-- This gauge will malfunction if the Oil pressure switch is faulty or not working. This is an Information relay unit for the indicator light or gauge on instrument panel. It contains a diaphragm that responds to changes in oil pressure. When the oil level is over a pre-set limit, the diaphragm opens the switch, turning off the light. When level is below the pre-set limit, the dash light comes on. In later model cars, if the oil pressure drops, the switch turns off the fuel pump, to stop the engine and limit damage to internal parts. Oil pressure switches can be grouped into two categories, units for electrical gauges and for mechanical gauges. If this switch is defective, it will have to be replaced. Once replaced, it will fix the dead oil gauge.

This device is located Under the hood, passenger side, front engine area, mounted rear of water pump. If the wires are worn or there is an oil leak near the switch location, replace it.

Inspecting all the above areas and replacing parts if needed, will fix your gauge issues.

Please rate and god bless:)

If your oil pressure dropped to 0, your engine would seize up within minutes. Most likely the problem is the oil pressure sending unit. A hundred bucks at any reputable shop should be able to take care of it for you.

Flashig oil light


You either have a loose/worn engine bearing or a worn out oil pump, do not drive the car this way, you will cause serious damage to the whole engine. A oil switch is for a light, it turns on the light when oil pressure falls below about 10 PSI, a sending unit is for a guage that shows oil pressure with a scale, it may have numbers on the guage or just green and red, or high and low.
