Is the check engine light on too ?
The check gauges light means one of the gauges is below normal. The oil pressure gauge measures oil pressure, not how much oil is in the crankcase.

check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.

SOURCE: my jeep grand cherokee tells me to check gages

The instruments on your dashboard are your gauges. Checking them means to make note of abnormal readings that indicate a potential failure or an actual problem. Oil pressure should be above 20psi (usually between 30 and40) charge rate should be around 13.5 volts and temp warmed up and running should be around 200-210 degrees (f). If anything reads much differently you have something that needs to be checked by your shop.

SOURCE: 92 voyager check gage light

That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

SOURCE: check gages on jeep grand cherokee

If your "Check Gauges" light is on, the light means pretty much whay it says...CHECK GAUGES! One or more of your gauges is/are reading outside of normal operating range. You could be having an overheating problem (Temperature gauge near or in the red) You could be having a charging system problem (Battery or Amp gauge reading in the "discharge" or "low voltage" area.) You could be nearly out of fuel (Fuel gauge reading near empty) Your oil pressure could be low (OIl Pressure gauge reading very low)....You have to look at your gauges to find out what is going on that is not normal.

SOURCE: What does it mean when the check gage light come

Either the oil level is very low or the engine bearings have failed (assuming the gauge is accurate) if the engine isn't making noise and the level is full have a mechanical gauge installed to check actual pressure. if good, the sending unit or gauge is faulty.
If in doubt, do not drive or run the engine 'tll the problem has been diagnosed.

Well the check gauge light is telling you to check your gauges, because of the low oil pressure. It could be a sending unit problem, or the oil pressure really could be dangerously low. Should be at least 25psi at idle.

After oil change, pressure gage drops to zero and check gages light comes on after running for five minutes. oil is still full though.


Remove, check and replace the Oil Pressure Sensor. It should be located adjacent to the Oil Filter.

My two thousand jeep starsts then shuts off engine light comes on check gages what are the gages


You probably recently had a new key made, and the Jeep ignition is chipped. The key has a sensor, and must be programmed to match the ignition. Some will start till you put it in gear, then it shuts off.
