Go to your local auto parts store such as AutoZone or VIP Auto, they have a tool to view problem codes and they will let you know what needs to be replaced. AutoZone will be it for free.

If the service light comes on then their is some thing wrong with the engine. Your local auto parts store should be able to run a diagnostics test on your car to tell you why the light is on.

You can take it to a part store and they will hook it up to one of there computers and tell you the code for the light. But if all is running good I very sure its the O2 sensor. When and o2 sensor goes out, the light will come on but the car will seem to run fine.

Oil pressure drops to 0


If its a v8 then its probably a plugged oil sump and now a bad pump. install test gauge to determine if pump is actually bad.

Sent ploblem with eletric gauge i check the back of gauges still hot working


your airbag light, engine light, speedometer and rpm come from computer, the oil should come from engine directly.

The only connection that these have in common is the cluster itlself. sounds like a voltage regulator problem or maybe something like a friendly mouse in the car, they can wreck havoc on an electrical system.

One other possibility, the oil pressure switch may be connected to the computer to shut down engine if there is a loss of oil pressure....I would probably start there. I looked in my book here and I do not see any connection from oil pressure to PCM, but mybe something that is mid year change in you car or some thing along those lines....worth looking into
