Q: Q: Warning light coming on

asked by on

The Check Gauges light is on. I just had the oil changed.

Are and of the gauges not acting like they normally do? On your vehicle a common failure is of the oil pressure sending unit. When this happens your gauge will display zero oil pressure and cause the check gauges light to come on. I would ask for assistance from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come and diagnose and repair what is causing your Check Gauges Light to come on.
