2002, the check gauges light came on and oil pressure gauge won't move, but there the right amount of oil in the truck why is the oil pressure gauge not moving?
You do not say what year your truck is, so, I would take pismos advice and check your fluid levels first.
If that is not the problem, then take your gas cap off and check to make sure it is in good condition, put the cap back on, making sure to tighten it until it clicks. Sometimes a loose or bad gas cap can cause a check engine light to come on, due to an uneven fuel/air mixture.
If the check light is still on after that, then you can try taking one of the battery cables loose, leave it disconnected for about five minutes. Then reconnect the cable. Sometimes this will reset the check light.
If the light comes back on, then take it to an auto parts store such as AutoZone, and have them to put the scanner tool on it to see what codes come up. They will tell you what the codes are for, and most will run the scan free of charge.
Then go from there.
Check lights can come on for any number of reasons. ♂
Vehicle Dodge Ram 1500, check gages light comes on and off.
I had a 99 dodge ram with check oil pressure light on and I was told to put a high flow oil pump in and thats what I did and my oil pressure light stopped
Check your fluids! Like the oil, the coolant in the radiator. Check gauges tells you to check what ever your vehicle gauges are programmed to alert you of.
I am having trouble with te temp switch, so te temp switch is not working,
I have a 99ram 15004x4 5.2
The check gauges light comes on cause one of this is not working right. Like if the alt. Gauge is not between 13.5 to 14.0 or you`er oil press. Is to low or if it`s over heating.
#1 find out why it is on! Like; low oil,low coolant,low brake fluid.etc what year of truck can make all the differance. I am a mechanic since 60s, all car have basic principals,but can timely to correctly repair
I have a 1999 dodge ram 2500 cummins.
My check gauge light comes on when I turn the key but as soon as I start the truck the light goes off.
What is the problem ?
