Is there a fuse that works the oil pressure gauge and the battery gauge for a 2005 chevy trailblazer


NO , there is not a fuse just for those two thing's ! There are two power supply's for the whole insturment cluster . You could need a new cluster or the ECM isn't sending this info. to the cluster . Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM or the insturment cluster . Without knowing how this works (insturment cluster gets it's info.) Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that has the knowledge and test equipment to diagnose this problem.
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC receives a serial data message from the ECM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 psi (0 kPa) or below if:
• The ECM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM.
For the 4.2L LL8, the ECM uses an engine oil switch that is open when the oil pressure is normal and closed when the oil pressure is low. At normal pressure, the engine oil pressure gage will display 275 kPa (40 psi). At low pressure, the gage will go to 0 kPa and the low pressure warning will be displayed in the driver information center (DIC). At high pressure, the gage will display 551 kPa (80 psi). Any values between these three values are calculated values determined by the ECM.

Voltmeter
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle voltage based on the information from the body control module (BCM). The IPC uses the serial data information from the BCM to provide a voltage level indication on the voltmeter.

DTC P0521: Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor Performance

DTC P0522 Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor Circuit Low Voltage
DTC P0523 Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor Circuit High Voltage

Volt Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative

Install a scan tool.
Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF.
With the scan tool, perform the instrument panel cluster (IPC) gauges output control.
Does the volt gauge move up and down when commanded?

Oil pressure on my 1996 Dodge Ram pickup is running low even though my oil level is fine


have the oil pressure checked with an independent gage as sometimes gages in the dash don`t show correct pressure. how long has it been since the oil was changed as oil when it gets dirty it thins out and can affect oil pressure. if you don`t hear any ticking with the motor running chances are the pressure is either good or just a little low. testing oil pressure with an independent gage will tell the tale.

HOW TO FIND THE OIL CENTER GAGE?


you looking for the pressure sensor that is on the engine block (or close to it) look by the oil filter or near the distributor cap..

Info on oil gage


The oil gage and the fuel gage both use the same power and voltage control. so if the fuel gage is working the oil gage will work too. The sending unit is mounted on the motor and it gets hot and cold and has to put up with the acids that build up in the oil. this uit with a wire connected to it screws into the engine near the oil filter. The units that work the gage are quite expensive and many peaple just go on without one. I have a trooper and the gage does'nt work on it either and they cost alot and most stores don't have them.

The "Check Gages" light comes on all the time now.


The "check gages" light comes on in response to the oil pressure (not oil level) gage dropping too low. Step one is to check to make sure the engine has oil pressure. Use a mechanical gage inserted directly into the engine when the oil pressure sensor screws in. If the pressure is good, you need to check the gage. Your dealer has a tool that attaches to the connector from the pressure switch that gose to the gage. He can then test the gage, cluster and circuit wiring. If that is ok the culprit is the oil pressure sensor itself. I normally don't recommend replacing parts without a proper diagnosis but an oil pressure switch is relatively inexpensive. You might want to try that first. It's relatively common anf if that's the culprit, you will save a bunch of $$$ no having to go to your dealer. If you still have a problem, you have at least eliminated one item and are only out a couple of bucks.

The oil gauge is not working had a new put in but that wasnt the problem.


One of four things is happening:

1. You are very low on oil, but probably you already checked that

2. The oil pump is not working, but the engine would not last long with no oil circulating.

3 The oil pressure sending unit is defective. This is a unit that send an electrical signal to the gage proportionate to the pressure it is measuring from the engine. If the pressure gage is bad then you get no signal and nothing is measured on the oil pressure gage. Also check the wires from the sending unit to make sure they are not frayed or broken.

4. The oil pressure gage is defective. Yes even new guages can be defective. Check the new gage to make sure is is operating properly. (external voltage check)


The only other possibility is that the engine is loosing lots of oil pressure due to excessive wear.

Good luck

All you have to do is replace your oil pressure sending unit.It`s in the rear of the motor by the left head.This is the drivers side.You need a special socket to remove the sending unit.Good luck.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance
