Gauge reading in red

The far left gauge on my 1996 jeep cherokee sport is reading in the red after I drive 5 or 10 minutes. If I take my foot of off the gas pedal it drops out of the red. What is this gauge all about?

Well, without being described what the gauge looks like, im gunna take a shot in the dark and say its the oil pressure gauge. You didnt say which way red either. You DEFINATELY need to have it checked out asap. As that will blow up your engine.

Voltage should be more than 14--closer to 14.5. Alternator is starting to pack up. Recommend you replace--good insurance. Let me know if you need instructions.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L engine. Oil


I'm assuming the engine is still running and no engine noise has occured due to loss of oil pressure, and it is just the gauge that is not reading? If so, the oil pressure switch that is located on the camshaft sensor, could have a bad connection or the oil sensor will need to be replaced. The oil sensor is located on the left side of the engine and is mounting horizontally on the camshaft sensor housing.

1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport. My low beams will flash on and off along with the dash lights after a few minutes of driving. I am now forced to drive with my high beams on.


Sounds like a relay may need to be replaced. Check all of your fuses. Check the relays. I believe the Jeep has a relay for the headlights I could be mistaken. It would be my guess. But also, how long since you replaced the bulbs. A friend of mine had hers flicker when it was a "friendly reminder" to replace. But when you change something, it's always smart to replace the fuse that goes with it.

Best of Luck

99 jeep cherokee sport 4.0l 6cyl voltage will go to 19v


The problem sounds intermittent, if you put volt meter on the battery while it is at that 19volt mark/reading(on the gauge cluster) you will be able to see if it is true. If your alternator is really charging over 16volts the lights should be getting brighter then usual and/or they are burning out. Find out ASAP, if the alternator has a defective voltage regulator, it needs to be replaced. Prolong use will damage components.
