The needle on the dash gage can be pulled off and slipped back onto the stem of the gage. First get an accurate temp gage to be sure what the engine temp is operating at. Then remove the face of the dash gages and remove the needle and place it back onto the stem to reflect the current correct engine temp and you should be good.

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

Looking for how to fix temp gage ..doesn't work at all.


Common problem just replace the tempiture sending unit. it's next to the Top radiator hose by the thremostat housing and costs $15.00 you can go to advance auto parts to get a price and see what it looks like. there are two one for the gage and another for the computer.

Suburban 2001 temperature gage fluxuating from high to low


Is it just the gauge or is the engine coolant temperature varying? Does the heater seem to vary in temperature when it is on.
It could be a couple of different things.
One could be a malfunctioning temp sending unit, it has lost its calibration.
Two, your thermostat is cycling open and closed from a weak return spring, worn out.
Make sure coolant level is correct and the mixture is 50/50.
Let me know.

The overhead outdoor temperature Gage reads 25-75 degrees below actual temperature I have tried resting the compass and disconnected the battery for fiver minutes. Where is the outside temperature sensor...


The outdoor temp sensor is just inside the grill when you opent the hood. The part cost around $76 and kind of looks like a electrical plug receptacle. There are little clips holding the old one in that need to be held apart to dislodge it, slip the new one in, and you're done. Took about 5 minutes.

Good luck!

Fan turns on and off all the time


It is normal for the fan to cycle between on and off even though the temperature gage reads normal.
Anytime the coolant temperature rises by approximately 10 degrees above the normal operating temperature the fan cycles on but you won't notice the gage show that small of an increase.
