Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

My check gages light come on as well. When it happens, my oil gage drops as well. When check gage light goes off, the oil gage returns to normal. Lately, the problem is getting worse. Then check light is staying on for long periods of time. In addition, the check engine light stays on as well. I am really tried of this car (Dodge Durango), but can't afford a new or like-new ride right now.

I don't see the problem
You have a check light on, most of the time.
Check lights have been on vehicles for 31 model years now. Surely you know why! You have a system malfunction, get the code read, as soon as the light comes on,and have the vehicle repaired.

What has, getting tired off a vehicle and a newer one, that will develop similar issues, have to do with this. Educate yourself.

While driving all dash gages randomly drop to zero for 1-2 seconds and makes warning beep, gages return to normal but airbag light stays on for 4-5 seconds. Any ideas on why this is happening?


Hi Scott, Im glad to help!

Normally when the gauges drop to zero its because something is bringing down the BUS Circuit. To understand whats going on we need to find out if there are any codes in the system. Have the codes checked and repost here so I can help you further. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Scott.

The "Check Gages" light comes on all the time now.


The "check gages" light comes on in response to the oil pressure (not oil level) gage dropping too low. Step one is to check to make sure the engine has oil pressure. Use a mechanical gage inserted directly into the engine when the oil pressure sensor screws in. If the pressure is good, you need to check the gage. Your dealer has a tool that attaches to the connector from the pressure switch that gose to the gage. He can then test the gage, cluster and circuit wiring. If that is ok the culprit is the oil pressure sensor itself. I normally don't recommend replacing parts without a proper diagnosis but an oil pressure switch is relatively inexpensive. You might want to try that first. It's relatively common anf if that's the culprit, you will save a bunch of $$$ no having to go to your dealer. If you still have a problem, you have at least eliminated one item and are only out a couple of bucks.

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

My oil gage drops from normal to 0 and then bounces back.


you need to replace your sending unit first. its usually $5 or so dollars. If you still have the problem after you fix that. you may have a more serious problem.

Oil pressure guage dropping


Sounds like the sensor is failing.Have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage to confirm. A new sensor or wiring repair is allot cheaper then a new engine!!
