After briefly turning on the A/C my engine light

After briefly turning on the A/C, my engine light came on and my fuel gauge stopped working. The fuel gauge started working on it's own but my engine light is still on. What could the problem be?

Battery went flat after light left on charged battery engine turns fine but wont fire up immobilizer light has not come back on I think immobiliser is stopping fuel supply ???


Does the light come on briefly, then go out when turning key to on? It should do that. Something is wrong with the pump if you turn key to on and the pump doesn't turn on for 2 seconds. It should turn on to put pressure in the line and to the injectors.

Why isnt my engine getting enough fuel to run?


Many times you need to prime it. You didn't say if it was an electric fuel pump or a manual. For a manual, pump the gas pedal several times, have someone watch for when gas mist gets to the carb. If electric pump, turn the key on and let wait until the pump quiets down. For an inline filter, we used to pour a few drops of gas into the filter, then install it properly. You can also prime the carburetor.

You just aren't getting the gas back up to the carb, that's all.

Fuel gauge stopped working on my 94 mercury grand marquis. how do i fix it , could it be a fues


The fuel gauge gets power from the same circuit as the warning lights. If those lights work when you turn the key on, the gauge has power.
Chances are the problem is the sending unit in the gas tank, or the gauge itself.

Kia sedona 2003. Engine management light comes on briefly when under load.


FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD CHECKED AND IF IT IS LOW THE PUMP WILL NEED REPLACED.OTHERWISE I WOULD BE CHECKING FOR A EXHAUST RESTRICTION,BEST METHOD IS TO SCREW A PRESSURE GAUGE INTO 02 PORT BETWEEN ENGINE AND CAT THERE SHOULD NEVER BE MORE THAN 3PSI.ANOTHER METHOD AND LESS DETERMINING IS FEEL THE EXHAUST PRESSURE OUT TAIL PIPE WHILE SOMEONE OPENS THROTTLE.COMPARE THIS FELT PRESSURE TO A KNOWN GOOD CAR.THE SOURCE OF YOUR SYMPTOM COULD BE MANY THINGS ,BUT I WOULD START WITH THE TWO MENTIONED.

My 1994 Mercedes c220's fuel gauge stopped working


Fuel level sensor is in the gas tank, may be faulty or just dirty, make sure to fill the tank entirely full with premium unleaded, ad a high quality fuel system cleaner / de-gunker, this may clean the sensor enough to feed back to the gauge. It could also be the fuel gauge itself, but that is less likely. Mercedes will be happier with at least 1/4 tank of fuel at all times, and don't skimp on low octane gas!
As for the check engine light, you may have a bad gas cap... believe it or not a gas cap that doesn't seal properly will throw the check engine light. If you get the codes read (for free) at an Autozone or similar parts store it will likely read "evap system" as the problem, which will likely end up being the gas cap.
Take your car to a service center that does a true "flush and fill" of your a/c system. Those little canisters will just waste your money, and they never truly clean and re-lubricate the system like a flush and fill will do.

Guages on 87 olds cutlass are not working properly. fuel does not work, temperature works but goes strainght to hot as soon as the car warms up, amp gueage discharging oil pressure not working


Hi, you will have to replace all sending units for these gauges in order to restore them to there original state. i will list the sending units and there respective locations below.

1. Fuel gauge sending unit- you will need to replace the fuel sending unit on your Olds. its located inside the actual fuel tank. there's a floater attached to this Assembly and , its broken. you will have to replace the entire assembly. you will also have to drop the fuel tank to access it as well.

2. Temp guage-- normally when this guage starts to malfunction, its because of a bad coolant temperature sensor. Inspect the sensor's wires and connections. ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor problems are often caused by faulty wiring or loose or corroded connections rather than the failure of the sensor itself. If the wires or connections are bad, replace them. If you think the sensor is defective, it should be tested.

This sensor is located Under hood, center, upper engine area, front of carburetor, passenger side of water outlet, mounted in intake manifold.

3. Amp gauge --- OK, this can be caused by a bad voltage regulator. i would also trace every single wire from the amp gauge to the sensor and regulator. check for corroded connectors and contact clips. replace any wire that may seem worn.

4. Oil pressure gauge-- This gauge will malfunction if the Oil pressure switch is faulty or not working. This is an Information relay unit for the indicator light or gauge on instrument panel. It contains a diaphragm that responds to changes in oil pressure. When the oil level is over a pre-set limit, the diaphragm opens the switch, turning off the light. When level is below the pre-set limit, the dash light comes on. In later model cars, if the oil pressure drops, the switch turns off the fuel pump, to stop the engine and limit damage to internal parts. Oil pressure switches can be grouped into two categories, units for electrical gauges and for mechanical gauges. If this switch is defective, it will have to be replaced. Once replaced, it will fix the dead oil gauge.

This device is located Under the hood, passenger side, front engine area, mounted rear of water pump. If the wires are worn or there is an oil leak near the switch location, replace it.

Inspecting all the above areas and replacing parts if needed, will fix your gauge issues.

Please rate and god bless:)
