Get an Auto Electrician to trace and fix the problem. There are partial contacts in the wiring system.

The fuel gauge will be the tank sender unit fault--- The speedo will be the sender unit on the gear box playing up and the oil gauge will be a fault to the oil sender unit. The only common point is the earth which may be loose rusted

Low oil pressure warning


It sounds like the oil pressure sending unit is going bad. Sometime they're called oil pressure switches. That would be my first guess. Why its proportional to 1/4 segments of gas portions makes very little sense. Fuel level sending units work as semi circular resistance sweep. Not in segments the only thing that segments fuel protions are the lines on your instrument panel gauge. Anyhow check the fuel pressure switch.

1999 dodge ram 1500 4X4 air bag light, check gauges light, oil pressure and gas guage all came on. Then they would all go out. Now truck will not start.


Well the air bag light would not have anything to do with the engine. The warning light for the gauges would come on if the gauges needed attention. And that would happen if the engine died.
When you turn the key on, does the gas gauge register ?
Do you have spark and fuel pressure when you crank the engine ?

All dash warning lights come on and the temperature and tach needles drop to zero when the headlights are turned on.


Symptoms point to the cluster microprocessor. How was it proven? See diagram below.

1989 F150 4x4 gas tank leaked (rear tank) had it replaced , ran out of gas today @ half tank register on gauge, also oil pressure gauge fluxauting from normal to o. Is it a bad ground, if so where is the...


When replacing the fuel tank often mechanics dont check the gauge, it can be damaged when reinstalling it or if it came with the sendor in it already, often they get knocked around in shipping making them read wrong. And in the shop we always check the oil pressure with a live gauge . you can get one at a local parts store pretty cheap, it comes with a new sending unit and all, and the sending unit is the ground, the gauge has a continuous hot and the sending unit applies a amount of ground to allow the needle to climb.
