My check battery light comes on as well as check gages. Coolant is full and has brand new battery. Just had an oil change. Once I turned off the jeep and started it and the battery Gage went back to normal. I also had to drive without having the vehicle stop or the engine would kill with no idle ... Any ideas? 1996 grand Cherokee Laredo v8

Could be the voltage regulator, loose drive belts, corroded or faulty battery cables or ground strap(main grounding wire).

92 voyager check gage light


That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

Check gages light turns on and doesn't go off. Already had the oil changed, the oil pressure needle keeps marking 0. It had the same problem once but I changed the oil and kept working fine; then about 2...


At this point I would strongly suggest that you have your mechanic hook a mechanical oil pressure guage to the engine and make absolutlely sure that the pressure is up to manufacturers standards. It may simply be a failing oil pressure sending unit, but, until you know, it could turn out a lot more expensive! Thank you, Dana

After oil change, pressure gage drops to zero and check gages light comes on after running for five minutes. oil is still full though.


Remove, check and replace the Oil Pressure Sensor. It should be located adjacent to the Oil Filter.

The oil pressure on the instrument panel registers low when coming to a stop, then "CHECK GAGES" light will come on. When I accelarate the oil pressure will raise to normal level.


this could be a fulty oil pump or a very dirty oil filter and or oil,,,i would give the car an oil change and a new oil filter and then see what it runs like, if its still very low try a new gage if its the same reading its the oil pump or the engine's bearings are worn out,

Check gage light comes on for 2004 chevrolet trailblazer''


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...

Temperature gage has fluctuates between 100 and 260, the water is full and fan seems to be working ok, and all belts seems to be ok.


You need to verify that the gage is accurate, if it is then the cause is the thermostat, but check the gage first, a repair shop can do this or you can feel the air coming off the radiator fan, if it is really hot changing to cool rapidly then the T-Stat is sticking open.
