Good question, but they are not related, they are on 3 completely different circuits and un related in anyway, the gas guage is most likely the sending unit in the gas tank is defective, the check engine light will require a trouble code test of the system, any Kragen or Autozone can do this, it's free.

Engine Temperature Gage at the Instrument Panel not working


Your temp.gauge is probably bad ! Check for voltage at the coolant temp. sender ! You have to check it with the engine running . The red with white stripe should have a voltage the other wire ,yellow with red stripe is ground side ! Instrument panel fuse box fuse # 15 a 10amp fuse powers the gauges ,if your gas gauge works it's not the fuse . The dome lights get there power from an other fuse an circuit ! Did you check the bulb ? Check fuse # 8 IP fuse box , also a 10amp . Check for voltage at the dome light ,switch on !

I have change the sensor and gauge and still my car temp. gauge moves to the hot zone right away. what elese can it be. I even check the relay is good.


Try disconnecting the sensor. then turn on the ignition switch and see what the guage dose. If it still goes to the top, chances are there is a short in the wiring. If it does nothing, chances are you have a defective sensor.

I noticed yesterday that when I turned my car off the fan under the hood kepts going for about 2 minutes and then turned off. On the way home yesterday my sensor went off saying "turn AC off to...


The fan staying on for a few minutes wass just the fan and sensor trying to bring the temp down at the radiator.

As for the AC shutoff warning, you may not have enough coolant to keep the engine cool. With the engine off and cold, check the radiator and the overflow jug, ensuring they both have the proper amount of coolant. If either is low, fill to specs and drive the vehicle to see if it stays cool. If filling them doesn't fix the problem, you may have a stuck thermostat.

When the engine was running hot, did you notice if the fan was running or not? If it was not, then you may have a fan sensor going out. If it was, you may have a low coolant or thermostat problem

Where is the coolent sensor on a 1993 Buick Regal? My coolant light on my car comes on while driving. The car isn" low in coolent and doesn"t over heat.


Depending on the engine that you have most of the coolant level sensors are mounted in the radatior about a foot down below the fill cap. They often had problems with these sensors getting debris on the end's of them causing a false reading. What your looking for is a black box about an inch and a half square and about 3/4 inch thick .you can try to remove it and clean but the best way is just to replace

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

1990 Regal Coupe 3.1 engine. Low Coolant Light Stays Lit


This is a COMMON Problem that GM had with the Level Sensor Curciut, And they Never Correctly Addressed it. I Have on ocations Replaced the Sensor and that Corrected the Problem, BUT Other times the Light STAYS ON No matter What, I have tracked the Wires and all I Have Ever Found was the Plug Being FAULTY. So if A NEW Coolant LEVEL SENSOR Does NOT Turn off the Light, try Replacing the PLUG Itself.

Gas gage dont work, gas warning lite stay on, spedometer gage all the way 160, rpm gage also all the way, battery lite stay on, abs lite on, srs on, when the car is on or running. 1996 MB s420


That may be a sign of a bad alternator. start you car and take the positive batter cable off the battery. If the car dies replace the alternator. That is a really good sign that your alternator is bad.

Coolant fill procedure


NEVER open the radiator when the car (or any other engine) is running!! The radiator is part of the pressurized cooling system (under that cap is coolant at 15psi)

Correct way to check the coolant in the radiator, is wait until the engine is COLD, then remove the radiator cap and re-fill.
