Question about 1996 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Gauges stop working,transmission lights are all lit up.

When I start the car the oil lights,air bag gauges don't light up and the gauges don't work and the transmission indicator lights are all lit up. If you try to drive the car it will allow you to drive up to 25 mph. At that speed the transmission disengages and the rpm rev. up. What could be causing this condition. The car did sit for 3 years. , I got the car free.

Cruise control and horn stopped working

Check your fuses first, then a vacuum leek second. To reset the air bag light unplug the battery for 30 seconds then reconnect. If the light comes back on take it to a garage as the air bag can be very dangerous.

1999 dodge ram 1500 4X4 air bag light, check gauges light, oil pressure and gas guage all came on. Then they would all go out. Now truck will not start.

Well the air bag light would not have anything to do with the engine. The warning light for the gauges would come on if the gauges needed attention. And that would happen if the engine died.
When you turn the key on, does the gas gauge register ?
Do you have spark and fuel pressure when you crank the engine ?

I have a 2002 trailblazer that I drive to work in the morning and on my lunch break. When I leave work and drive 10 miles down the highway and get off the highway when i stop at the red light the oil...


Please clarify for me! Are you saying all the guage lights come on? And are you for sure it is not the brake light coming on?

And have you checked your fluids, oil, brake etc,.

The only reason I ask is that, I have guages light up also, but usually it is either the brake light or the air-bag light and mostly as you stated, when I'm coming to a stop or braking or even driving under 40 mph! Never when I'm on the Interstate.

I have air in my brake lines causing the brake light to come on, which I need bled bad, the air-bag is a fluke, I don't even like them, let alone trust them! I'm still driving though!

I would say, it's okay to drive, no more than you are driving it, but...

If your check engine light comes on & off, most likely you are getting low on some kind of fluid or something needs to be fixed?

When you have a chance go to Advance Auto or Auto Zone and ask them to test your car for a faulty sensor or switch...they do it for FREE! They hook a diagnostic machine up to your car, doesn't take too long a few minutes maybe, it will tell exactly what is wrong.

Kind Regards!

Need to fit two airbags do I fit the module before or after.

disconnect battery and do not work on system for at least 5 minutes then remove air bags and then remove the module. Install both air bags then install module and plug in next hook battery back up and turn key to run do not start watch the air bag light to see if it goes off. if it does start it is there a air bag light light lit or flashing? if no your good to go if you get a flashing light then you need to check accelerometers on each side of the front of the car. If the car is equipped with alarm system you will need to reste it to start.

All the light on instrusment panel are on,none of the gauge work.

Fuel gauge, is fuel sending unit or gauge itself.
Air bag could be a faulty clock spring, bad bag, bad module, or something else. Air conditioner I would need to know what is not working right to elaborate on that.

Electrical problems. Side air bags went off by themselves

Saw this in many Buicks while working valet 7+ years, has to be some kind of recall. I suggest calling a dealer
