It means exactly what it says, check your gauges. One of the guages must be indicating a problem, i.e. coolant too hot, low oil pressure, low voltage, etc. If you don't know how to read your gauges for proper diagnosis, I'd suggest you find someone who does; perhaps your local dealership or mechanic. This could save you a potentially costly repair bill in the near future.

Is the check engine light on too ?
The check gauges light means one of the gauges is below normal. The oil pressure gauge measures oil pressure, not how much oil is in the crankcase.

2000 Pontiac Sunfire with two gage lights on, what do they mean?


The first one is telling you that there is a fault detected in your ABS, automatic braking system. This is the system which keeps your wheels from locking up during hard braking. Might want to get someone to check on it.

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
