I dont know what gauge you are talking about but the first thing is to replace the sensor that controls that gauge, for example if its the temp gauge then replace the coolant temp sensor, hope this helps,

Temp guage not working 1999 alero

One advantage us dealer tech's have over a week end warrior is that we have factory service repair information and have factory scan tool ,Tech 2 , to check data coming into the instrument cluster . Most of you probably don't even think about how that coolant temp infor shows up on the gauge , except by a coolant sensor !

High Temperature Indicator
The high temperature Indicator function handles the control of the Engine Temperature Gauge Display and the red High Temperature indicator. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) reads the Coolant Temperature Sensor, filters the messages, and sends the coolant temperature to the instrument cluster via a Class 2 serial data message. The PCM monitors the coolant sensor in order to determine a fault. The PCM transmits the Class 2 serial data coolant temperature report messages to the instrument cluster for the temperature gauge display and for the high temperature indicator control.
The instrument cluster receives the engine temperature data in the Class 2 serial data message from the PCM. The instrument cluster converts this data into a temperature gauge pointer position which drives the gauge pointer. The instrument cluster also uses this data in order to determine the high temperature indicator control.
The Body Control Module (BCM) looks for the high temperature indicator Class 2 serial data report from the instrument cluster and triggers a chime when the indicator is ON.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop , rather then just replacing parts .

Trouble shootfuel guage94 jeep cherokee

gauge stuck high or low or"??????????????
how to ?
with no tools or with ?
got meter? or nothing.?
is tank full now, empty?
knowing that we can check the sender.
using an OHM meter, dmm set to resistance
unplug sender and check its ohms to ground.
infinity reading is bad sender
btw at 63ohms the sensor is at, cause the low fuel lamp to glow.
page 8e-6 in the factory manuals shows doing all this.
its in every jeep book in print. XJ jeep.
8e-23 shows.
empty tank is 105 ohms
1/2 full is 33 ohms
and full is 5 ohms.

first is fuse good to cluster, do all other guages work?
then unplug C203, below near tank
see that wire,DB, (dark-blue)
measure it to with ohm meter, must read 5 to 105 ohms
if not and is why too too high .
unplug C307, and measure black to VT, (violet?)
100 to 5 homes if ok now, the ground wire there is rusty.
if not ok, the sensor is toasted.
if all this check ok.
then at c203, DB wire ground that wire,
and gauge must go to fULL key on,
if not . the DB wire is bad, or custer guage, bad,
if this test fails we do this same grounding test
at the actual gauge. if fails, gauge is bad.

Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why

1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

2003 volkswagen golf engine temperature gauge and engine light on

If the temp gauge reading is high when the engine is cold it will be a short to the sender unit or a faulty sender unit ( as opposed to a temperature sensor unit). Have the fault codes read to find out what put the engine light on ( overheat)

Where is the low side ac conection on a 2001 altima located. I found one conection but not sure witch it is. when I conected the 134 refill can, the little gauge on top went to the red high pressure...

If you are getting a high reading then you have a problem with the system. Only other thing is make sure you have the valve turned off, The gauge and R-134 connected and then slowly turn the gauge handle. Sometime these will give you a high reading if it wasn't hooked up correct. The system was modified so the gauge will fit on the low pressure side. Good Luck.
