Check gauges light on all the time. I replaced radiator cap and topped up coolant . Also checked and topped up engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid . All gauges show normal reading but the check...


The light says check gauges? This doesn't mean fluids are low. Look at the gauges, something is out of spec. A common one is the alternator, if the voltage drops below usually 12v, the light comes on.

Check gages on jeep grand cherokee


If your "Check Gauges" light is on, the light means pretty much whay it says...CHECK GAUGES! One or more of your gauges is/are reading outside of normal operating range. You could be having an overheating problem (Temperature gauge near or in the red) You could be having a charging system problem (Battery or Amp gauge reading in the "discharge" or "low voltage" area.) You could be nearly out of fuel (Fuel gauge reading near empty) Your oil pressure could be low (OIl Pressure gauge reading very low)....You have to look at your gauges to find out what is going on that is not normal.

My temperature gauge is not registering and my check gauges light comes on when im at a stoplight.when im driving the oil pressure is fine but when i come to a stop or idle the check gauges light blinks on...


A faulty temperature sending unit. It should be located on or near the thermostat housing. If any of your gauges reads zero, the check gauges light will come on. Sometimes even if the fuel gauge gets too low, it will trigger the light. It may be the connection at the sending unit. It may have become loose so wiggle it and make sure it is securely connected to the sending unit. If the temp. gauge needle pegs at the top of the gauge, it means the sending unit has grounded out and is faulty. If it jumps, reads off or not at all it could be a faulty sender or a bad connection.

Check gauges


The "Check Gauges" light comes on when a reading from one of the sensors which controls the gauge cluster is out of spec, in other words, it should be accompanied by a low/high engine temperature, a low fuel warning, an oil pressure light, a coolant level light, or something similar.

If none of the other gauges show a problem while the "Check Gauges" light is illuminated, there may be an electrical fault which requires further diagnosis.

Check gage light keeps coming on, but there seems to be nothing wrong, what should I check??


one gauge is tripping it on,
but you have to be fast enough to check gauges when it happens,it could be the fuel gauge going to empty,or the charging one going below 12 volts,or the oil gauge falling off at an idle,the temp gauge you should be able to catch that on if it was peaking

the check gauges light means exactly that, look at your gauges, there is something wrong, look all the gauges when the engine is running, usually the temp gauge is to high, is the vehicle overheating, is the check eng. light on, make sure all the gauges are reading normal, the check gauges light is there to get your attention, see what it wants.
