Where is the reset swich located

Hi, there are no reset switches, if your jimmy does not start, you need to check for fuel pressure,(55 psi),spark, and make sure there is no security light on. If the security light is on, there may be a computer issue causing a no start.Good luck...

Check Gages light comes on 99 GMC Surban

one of the gauges must a fluxuated enough to have the computer turn the light on,I've seen mostly gas gauges fluxuate,but train your eye where the voltage is in normal mode because it will still look like the needle is up there but it may only be 11 volts instead of 13-14 volts running.

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
