SOURCE: engine does not appear to be hot. Gauge says extreme heat

try replacing your temperature sending switch. That it what tells your gauge or idiot light where to read or light to come on. It may have a short in it. Or a short between the two.

SOURCE: THE OIL PRESSURE GAUGE DROPS TO ZERO AND LIGHTS ON

poor oil circulation may need either more oil or a new oil pump, any other symptoms?

It could just be the pressure sensor, as this is cheaper get it looked at first.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

SOURCE: gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on

This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!

Why does my gauge cluster stop working?


they have an issue with the instrument panel connectors, my 05 2500 hd has an intermittent problem where it goes dead and if you smack the dash or hit a bump driving it will reset. It got much better when I put an extra twist in the cable before connecting it. I also got a replacement cluster due to bad lights etc and it does the same as the old one,I think it's a loose pin, probably ground but haven't gotten around to fixing it. my 95 c 1500 did the same

All dash warning lights come on and the temperature and tach needles drop to zero when the headlights are turned on.


Symptoms point to the cluster microprocessor. How was it proven? See diagram below.

I have a 1999 Plymouth Voyager mini-van - 4 cylinder, 2.4 engine. It drives good but the gauges are not work sometimes. The temperature gauge stays at zero; the odometer/speedometer either stays at zero or...


There have been several issues with the instrument clusters in the Voyagers and Caravans. The circuit board can have cold solders at the plug connection causing an intermittent failure of the instruments. The fix is to remove the trim under the dash, around the steering wheel and in front of the cluster. This can be done with just a phillips screwdriver and some patience. Once this is out of the way there are 4 screws that hold in the cluster. Remove the cluster, and with a low temp solder gun, heat the solder points where the plug connects until they are liquid and reset themselves. Reassemble the cluster and check them before you put the dash assembly back together.

Chrysler 99' town&country idiot lights guages go on&off


This is a very common problem on 1998 dodge caravan, voyager, t and County. You have a cracked circuit board in your instrument cluster. It is a dealer item. You can remove your cluster and install the circuit board yourself to save money but after the install you will have to take the vehicle back to the dealer to have it calibrated before the tach and the speedometer will work.

Instrument panel gauges all stopped working while driving.


These vans are common for having cracked circuit boards in the Instrument cluster. You need to replace the circuit board. Try smacking the end of the dash and see if the gauges start working again.

I purchased a 2004 chevy van yesterday, the brake light and ABS light both stay on. Not much brake pedal, goes almost to floor but seems to stop van good. Is it possible its just air in the syatem? If so...


I have had the ABS light come on and stay on on a 2000 Suburban and a 2003 suburban. In both instances the brake system was fine. If you have not done so I would recommend you have the system checked for codes. If there are no error codes and the system is functioning properly the problem with the light staying on can be solved simply. Or at least I hope this solves your problem.

There is a small ground wire that is secured to the top rear of the engine block. It is on the passenger side of the engine. To find it remove the engine cover and reach back to locate the connection. Over time the ground connection gets compromised by dirt, grease, or corrosion. You need to unbolt this connection, clean the surfaces and re-install. On a friend's truck I just reached back and twisted the connection to seat it better and the lights have not come back on.

It sounds too simple but if it works it is much better that giving money to the dealer or a mech to solve the problem.
