Gauge lights


ABS and Brake warning lights intermittent may be caused by a failing wheel speed sensor(ABS Sensor) and /or its connector. You may have one on each wheel hub(4WD) or if 2WD, a sensor may be on the rear axle differential center.

Gauges work fine when engine's started, then oil gauge falls below zero and warning light comes on saying "Check gauges," so I check the oil and transmission fluid levels and these are fine but...


start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.

If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

Well Check your oil preshure with a proper gauge!
may have not sufisiant oil preshuire!!! or it might just be a faulty preshure senser!
Better that than defective oil pump! use caution as insefitient oil preshure will lead to ireprable engine dammage!!!!!

Have a good one .Bruce.

2004 dodge ram 4.7 no oil pressure reading until you turn it off


The oil pump either works or it doesn't, so it's not the problem. Check the wire connection at the pressure sending unit. The wire may be broken at the connector, or you may need to replace the sending unit.

Check gauges and no oil pressure in 03 ram hemi 4x4


Had the truck the truck to the shop and they said it was the sensor. I had it replaced and it hasn't screwed up since. If you search out this problem on the net, this is a problem with engine and its oil pressure sensor. Apparently, Chrysler is aware of the problem.

92 dodge ram 350 presure


first you want to check to see if there is the correct amount of oil in the engine. then you need to check to see if the oil is getting to the top of the motor. you can do this by looking into the valve cover from the oil filler or the vent. If your not getting oil to the top of the motor you need to replace the oil pump. if you do have oil in the motor and its getting to the top of the motor then you need to check the oil sending unit wire if its good and tight then I would replace the sending unit.
