Abs light comes on, overcharging and gauges bounce up and down?


Check the charging system and battery, as long as the alternator keeps fluctuating, the gauges will keep bouncing.

Oil pressure gauge drops to zero and comes back up to 80


Hello, this problem is due to a failing stepper motor. The stepper motor is the motor behind the gauge that controls the
movement of the needle. When a stepper motor begins to go out it will cause the gauge needle to stick, skip around, stay
at zero or max out on the gauge. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the stepper motor with a new one. While
replacing one motor it is best to go ahead and replace them all as the others will go out in time as well. Youre cluster
will have one motor for each gauge. Here's a link to a page showing exactly how to replace a GM stepper motor and where
to get the correct parts to do the job!

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo 6 cyl. i was driving and noticed the battery gauge said the battery was dead and then i noticed the check gauges light went on. i pulled over and saw my temp gauge...


well check the coolant level. it sounds like you had a vapor lock and that would cause steam to escape and cause connections to get wet. this may have cause your battery to read dead. if you aren't low on coolant then i would start with the thermostat. that is easy to change and cheap. if you have low coolant then you may have vapor lock. to fix that you need to let the engine cool down and if you have a radiator cap remove it. look inside you should see coolant. if you don't fill up the radiator with coolant. with the cap off start the jeep and turn the heater on. let the engine warm up. watch the temp gauge and keep looking in the radiator. if you don't see coolant keep add it. at times it will bubble and burp this is normal. keep checking the temp gauge. now see if you feel heat coming out of the heater. if your feeling good heat then the system is circulating. (this mean your not in vapor lock anymore) let it keep running and keep adding coolant till it is full in the radiator. once full put the cap back on and fill the coolant tank to the full point. keep running it but keep checking the temp to be on the safe side. if the temp stay steady you should be good. hope this helps. please rate.

COBALT TEMP GAUGE READS 250 DEGREES BUT ENGINE RUNNING COOL REPLACED COOLANT TEMP SENSOR AND STILL GAUGE GOES TO 250 DEG


Probably the temp gauge itself. Most of the time it doesn't have a problem but sometimes they do go bad. Did the car ever overheat prior to changing the solenoid?

Gas gauge issue


you got a problem with your fuel gauge sender that works together with the fuel pump inside in the fuel tank, that sender is a wire that could be burned and is sending wrong voltage to the fuel meter on the dash board,replace it as a unit or if you want to save lot of money buy it separate from the fuel pump.
