Will indicate if fuel pump is holding pressure. GuruW7N7Z answered 11 months ago I have a 2008 Yukon Denali 212,000 miles on it. I had to replace my oil pressure sensor. Good luck, and let us know. Finally, the passenger side power window and heated seat failed to operate. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. The problem is most likely in your hazard flasher switch.
And this is not because of the problems mentioned above in the repeat failure section. Causes of Language Scrolling Problem Two problems have been identified as potential causes of this problem.

Posted on Apr 27, 2009 check the filter,, if its bad enough your oil won't pass through it, making it look like your oil is full, but its not moving, Chevy's have whats known as a stepper motor also on the oil gauge,, whats bad about that is if thats gone bad, you have to replace the whole gauge cluster which last time I checked is 250.

The contact stated that the speedometer gauge and fuel gauge would not display an accurate reading whenever the vehicle was in operation. Gm decided to replace the clusters for customers who had the defect occur between 70 and 80k, with a charge for the labor, not the part. I was hoping this was a recalled item. ProTow answered about a year ago phc77064, Great information! Note that it's also common to find a P0520, standing for oil pressure sensor circuit malfunction and P0522 circuit voltage low.
Some vehicles use an oil warning light instead of an oil pressure gauge. Light duty trucks can be upgraded with a transmission temperature gauge if you want to monitor your transmission temps during towing or hauling. In order to get the speedometer to zero out you have to turn the car on and off until the needle drops to zero. Then when the car is turned off it doesn't zero out.

Bearing clearences, oil passages, bends in the oil gallerys and lines, and the strength of the oil pressure releif valve spring are some examples of these restrictions. First, any used instrument cluster will have the older generation of stepper motors and is likely to have failing gauges at the time of purchase. Once the new cam bearings are replaced it will create oil pressure because of the grooves where oil can pass at low rpm. I have the same problem that all the gauges are out. Check the followings: Oil pressure sensor Oil pan, oil pump, oil pick up screen all in same area Oil pressure Guage.
I'm waiting for the other cluster instruments to fail and then I will have to replace the parts on all. Sure it has to do with liability. I suspect you just have a defective oil pressure sending unit. The oil level is always good. Check and replace the cheapest parts first. Silverado tachometer problem — Silverado tachometer quit working If your Silverado tachometer quit working you can be certain that the cause is a bad gauge in the instrument cluster caused by a failing stepper motor. My vehicle is over 80,000 82,500 miles.
Sometime, the speedometer will even exceed the max speed on the dash and I know I'm not going that fast. The mechanic will check the condition of the oil and change it if necessary. How many miles do you have on the Yukon? A mechanical gauge uses a spring that is affected by the pressure of the oil. I hate to tell you to buy a special tool that you'll only use one time. Turned truck off, then I plugged back in the old one and started back up. Run it for about an hour, then do a complete oil change with new oil filter.
My speedometer does not work, it flutters or pegs out all the way. And refuses to make good on. Prices vary depending on exactly what services are performed light replacement, display repair, power failure repair,etc and whether shipping is involved. The first common cause is a faulty oil pressure sensor which is mounted on the engine. But, I guess it's better than a new car pmt.
I wonder if the sending unit could be bad and working just for the light and not for the guage? The vehicle was not included in the recall due to the excessive mileage, although the manufacturer stated that they would consider extending the special coverage under the recall. Place the circuit board back into the white center housing and snap on the black back housing. Not sure if I should put more money in for the big possible fixes. I can fix the little stuff myself.

With the amount of money you can save by doing it yourself, you can afford to get a good replacement part, a new screen and the special tool that makes it easier to replace and still save.
Then check for cracks or nicks in the wiring leading to the gauge. An oil pump is a positive volume pump, meaning it moves oil from one place to another in one direction. Also if they just changed oil, use the reset button and see if that helps eliminate the issue. This sending unit is part of the larger fuel pump assembly. The instrument panel would illuminate, but the fuel gauge, speedometer, oil pressure gauge, and rpm gauge would malfunction. The only event that we thought caused it was the really cold temperatures but its warmer now and completely quit working.
