The gages are the instrument panel in front of the driver (i.e. speedometer, tachometer, oil pressure, temperature). I'm not an expert on Grand Cherokees but it sounds like there may be a issue with the oil pressure (most cars have a protective circuit that will shut the engine off if the oil pressure falls below 4 psi). This could be a major issue with the engine or something small like the oil pressure sensor. I would start by checking the oil level. If the oil level is good then try starting it and watch the gages. Look for anything that does not appear to be normal. If one gage does not move then there is a good chance that it could be associated to your problem. Do some checking and keep us posted.

You probably recently had a new key made, and the Jeep ignition is chipped. The key has a sensor, and must be programmed to match the ignition. Some will start till you put it in gear, then it shuts off.

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

Check engine light came on, along with low fuel indicator.


I took the vehicle to the Jeep dealership, and the problem went away before they could check it out. They are going to check wiriing next, because the check engine light went out on its own, and the fuel gage began working corectly on its own. Not sure what caused it, but hope to have an answer from the dealer.
