Check connector on temperature sensor. If connector is good, you may need a new sensor. You can get a free scan of your car at your local auto parts chain, which may confirm a bad sensor or point to a different cause. Write down the trouble code and send to us for analysis and repair recommendations.

The coolant temperature sensor is installed on the transmission side of the engine (driver side of the car) as shown below.

How do i resest service engine soon light on a 1999 Denali, it has stayed on for 2 days, but all the gages are fine and all fluids are full.

The service engine soon light can be reset using an OBD-II Scanner's Erase Code function (button).

I got one for $98 plus tax at Walmart that has this function and should work on your vehicle.

Otherwise, the code may erase after 40 or more cycles of starting and shutting off the car's ignition, if there isn't something causing it go on consistently.

I would read the codes stored in the computer to see if it's something simple to repair.

Good luck on clearing your codes.

Check gage light goes on intermitantly along with the temperature going to hot. At the same time the engine sounds like I turned the ac on. I also notice a loss of power. Any ideas???

The "check gage" when ever the engine coolant is high or the engine oil pressure is low. First step of diagnosis, check the coolant level and your oil level immediately and then go from there. Hopefully, this will help you to FixYa problem!

Heat not working and service engine light on

Many times no heat is the result of low coolant which means there isn't enough to properly flow through the heat core. Check the coolant level. If you're running hot it could also be from low coolant. If the coolant level is normal you may very well have a stuck thermostat. If you do have low coolant the next step is to find the reason why it's low.

Did you pull the codes yet?

My speedo has not been working today all the other gages went out and after about 4 hours started working again

It sounds like the connection to your dash gage may have gone lose do to everyday vibration. If everything was running fine without any check engine or service engine soon, then it's your dash gage. Before your start your truck and the key'sare in the run possition, your gages should move up then down checking it's self. Keep a eye on that. Good luck. easy fix dubble check connection.

Radiator Fan's Run All The Time

There are 2 things that will cause this to happen. 1. The thermostat needs to be replaced and, 2. The coolant sensor can be bad. When I had this problem, I changed them both at the same time, she been just fine since then. Also, I had the check engine light on, and got the code from AutoZone (it's free!)
