The check gauge light on my 1992 Chevy Blazer came on. What does that mean?
Hello nachelle_mar: My name is Roger and I will help you. The check gauge lamp is a warning that a failure of somekind happend. I would check the oil,coolant and fan belt. With the engine off to make sure all fluids are full and the fan belt is on the engine. Start the car and observe the gauges themselves. Are they working propperly. Charge gauge should read above the 13.5 volt level. If it is less then 12.5 volts you have a alternator problem. After warm up engine hot. Look at the tempreture gauge. If it is over 195 to 210 in tempreture. Then this would turn on the gauge lamp. Next look at the oil gauge. If the oil pressure is to low (below 12 psi.) or extremeley high or jumps around a lot. Then that would turn on the lamp also.
This should help find a solution for you. Should you need further help please just ask I would be glad th help further. Please rate the answer you received. This way I know the answer was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
