  • robertkilgor Sep 30, 2009

    this has been address and can you give me another idea???It means that there is some earthing in these lights that is causing them to malfunction. need a check and rectification.

    Sep 30, 2009 - can you remove the front panel that hold all these lights? When you have removed them from the dashboard, you can inspect manually and also by starting the car. If the problem is in the panel then these lights should function properly. If not then the wiring need a careful look. I also had a similar problem with my oil pressure light. And found that its bulb holder was the culprit. Put a tape around it and the light was working properly. try such layman's tricks when you locate the fault. Then you can do a professional job when you get the time and opportunity.Sep 30, 2009 - I have read the whole question and as I have already mentioned that these gauges malfunction when they do not get proper current to work on. And earthing is one reason. And as regards your money is concerned, you would be charged only if you are satisfied. Sep 30, 2009 - Panel backward to the ignition switch.Sep 30, 2009 - Have you checked cabling to each light? or there may be a problem in the connector. All these lights could not have conked out simultaneously. So we have to look for the next best reason. And these are the cabling and the LED holders. LEDs are fine as they are lighting up.

There is a short somewhere near the dashboard. This short has simply fused the wires to each other allowing current to flow to all the indicators causing them to light up and it will remain so until the engine is shut down. All the sensors cannot malfunction all the same time, otherwise the car wont start and be drivable too. Get the electricals checked by a PC at any service station and it will diagnose this problem & identify the spot where its damaged.............................sodeep

Check gage light goes on intermitantly along with the temperature going to hot. At the same time the engine sounds like I turned the ac on. I also notice a loss of power. Any ideas???


The "check gage" when ever the engine coolant is high or the engine oil pressure is low. First step of diagnosis, check the coolant level and your oil level immediately and then go from there. Hopefully, this will help you to FixYa problem!

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

Oil leak in my 92 jeep cherokee


The most likely place for an engine to start leaking oil (when it's coming from the top and not the bottom) is around the valve covers -- the gasket goes bad. Next most likely is camshaft seals.

Sometimes just tightening the valve cover botls will stop it or at least reduce it.

Any of the mentioned things can cause it... Figure out whats causing it then you can remedy the situation...

Suburban 2001 temperature gage fluxuating from high to low


Is it just the gauge or is the engine coolant temperature varying? Does the heater seem to vary in temperature when it is on.
It could be a couple of different things.
One could be a malfunctioning temp sending unit, it has lost its calibration.
Two, your thermostat is cycling open and closed from a weak return spring, worn out.
Make sure coolant level is correct and the mixture is 50/50.
Let me know.
Regards,
