Is there a fuse that works the oil pressure gauge and the battery gauge for a 2005 chevy trailblazer


NO , there is not a fuse just for those two thing's ! There are two power supply's for the whole insturment cluster . You could need a new cluster or the ECM isn't sending this info. to the cluster . Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM or the insturment cluster . Without knowing how this works (insturment cluster gets it's info.) Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that has the knowledge and test equipment to diagnose this problem.
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC receives a serial data message from the ECM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 psi (0 kPa) or below if:
• The ECM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM.
For the 4.2L LL8, the ECM uses an engine oil switch that is open when the oil pressure is normal and closed when the oil pressure is low. At normal pressure, the engine oil pressure gage will display 275 kPa (40 psi). At low pressure, the gage will go to 0 kPa and the low pressure warning will be displayed in the driver information center (DIC). At high pressure, the gage will display 551 kPa (80 psi). Any values between these three values are calculated values determined by the ECM.

Voltmeter
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle voltage based on the information from the body control module (BCM). The IPC uses the serial data information from the BCM to provide a voltage level indication on the voltmeter.

Install a scan tool.
Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF.
With the scan tool, perform the instrument panel cluster (IPC) gauges output control.
Does the volt gauge move up and down when commanded?

I have a 02 dodge ram 1500 that have a rebuilt engine that the check gages comes on and oil pressure was low at a zero then accelerate the pressure went up to 40 then light goes off and checked oil level...


If you paid someone to rebuild the engine, you need to go back for warranty work. If you did the work, you need to put on mechanical gauge, and find out if the pressures is low or if your sending unit is not accurate.

1994 ford crown Victoria my oil gage went out of control, radio stoped working my engine keeps cutting off what the problem


The oil pressure gauge could be causing the engine to stop running. It could be a wiring problem in the harness going to the instrument cluster.

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?

My clock and radio are suddenly not working in my 2003 grand am


Your Vehicle has two fuse boxes one fuse box under the hood and one inside the vehicle. Check your owner’s manual and you should find the fuse panel at the side of driver’s dash console. Look at the fuse schematics for the fuse description radio then remove that fuse for a visual inspection. If it is good it could be an internal radio problem. However, If the battery jumper cables were hooked up incorrectly it may have damaged a battery cell or the regulator of the alternator and I would have her take it to NAPA, O’Reilly, or Auto Zone to have a free battery and charging system test.

The oil gauge is not working had a new put in but that wasnt the problem.


One of four things is happening:

1. You are very low on oil, but probably you already checked that

2. The oil pump is not working, but the engine would not last long with no oil circulating.

3 The oil pressure sending unit is defective. This is a unit that send an electrical signal to the gage proportionate to the pressure it is measuring from the engine. If the pressure gage is bad then you get no signal and nothing is measured on the oil pressure gage. Also check the wires from the sending unit to make sure they are not frayed or broken.

4. The oil pressure gage is defective. Yes even new guages can be defective. Check the new gage to make sure is is operating properly. (external voltage check)


The only other possibility is that the engine is loosing lots of oil pressure due to excessive wear.

Good luck

My Check Gage light came on and my oil pressure dropped to zero. The gage went up and down and final went all of the way down. I hear a bad knock in my engine and I have not lost any oil.


Typical Chrysler issue....I am going to assume you may have the 4.7L motor...2 possible issues: HEAVY oil sludge in engine (death to engine pretty much) and/or your oil pump needs replacing. Lastly, just throwing this one out there as it happened to me..oil sending unit gone bad.

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
