Check gages light comes on after truck shuts off

I was idling at a traffic light, the 2004 chevy trailblazer suv turned of by itself and the check gages light came on, not the check engine light, but the check gages light. i immediately turned the truck completely off and back on. the truck was fine but the gas gage took some time to reach full peek but then eventually did after about 3 miles of driving. do you think that the problem is fuel related or something else?

We have a 2002 Trailblazer and today the check gage light come on and it read to turn engine off. When we were moving it was fine ,but when we stopped at a red light or in traffic it read the same thing....


I can't speak for the engine light issue, but look into stepper motors for your gauges for the oil pressure issue. I just purchased a used '04 Trailblazer EXT and the tachometer stopped working 1 week after driving it off the lot. I did some looking and apparently the Delphi motors that GM used do not hold up.

My 2004 Chevy Trailblazer just shut off on its own at a traffic light... the check gages light immediatly turned on. I am a single mother and i dont know any guys in my area how do i check the gages?


Hi!!
If the check engine light came on, drive to the nearest AutoZone, Checkers, or similar autoparts store. Have them scan the vehicles computer for trouble codes,this is a FREE service, you'll get a print out of the codes and a short description of the fault. If you ask the tech to explain the probable cause, most of the time they would do it. If you need further assistance, contact FixYa again.
Good Luck!!

I have a 2004 Chev Trailblazer and the instrument cluster the back lights work but the instruments don't, the fuses are good, sometimes after driving it for 15 or 20 minutes and shutting it off and...


This is very common, in fact GM issued an extended warranty on the gage clusters from 2003-2005. Unfortunately the extended warranty has expired. The cluster either needs to be replaced or rebuilt. I know there are several companies that specialize in rebuilding them, but it takes 3-5 days and the vehicle is not drivable during that time and the repair is not cheap. I just checked and there is one on e-bay for $90 that may work for you.

Check gauge light can come on for a number of different things, from Low fuel to low oil pressure to high engine temperatures. When the light comes on check all the gauge's and see whats causing it, one or more of the gauge's will be showing an issue, Low fuel or low oil pressure, Low battery power. Any of the mentioned things can cause it... Figure out whats causing it then you can remedy the situation...

Check the gages by turning the key's to the run position and see if the gages work. If not check the fuses and then work your way to the wire harness. Good luck

Oil pressure guage dropping


Sounds like the sensor is failing.Have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage to confirm. A new sensor or wiring repair is allot cheaper then a new engine!!
