Answers :

A sensor has sent a fault signal to the control computer which has turned on the light. You need to have someone connect a diagnostic analyzer to the car to get an error code which leads you to the problem. Cannot be done visually. You can have this done at autozone or advance for free, a local repair shop for about 50 bucks, or at a dealer for about 100 bucks. the sophistication of the analyzer and human interpreter rises with the cost.

Oil pressure I own a 97' wrangler w/ 197,000 plus miles. Recently I had the front brakes, rotor and caliper replaced. This will sound odd but, now the engine heats slightly above normal and when that happens the check gauges light and buzzer goes off and the oil pressure gauge bounces up and down while the vehicle is at stop. The oil pressure gauge remains constant till it reaches that slightly elevated temp. While driving the temp fluctuates from normal to a little warm. Two months ago I replac

Thank you for the prior information. My 2004 CTS currently has 68,857 miles. When I heard the ticking and the message originally came on we checked the dip stick which only showed that the oil level was low about 1/2 qrt low but the information system in the car said 32% oil life, I have no clue what the heck that meant. All is very confusing, what the heck does 32% oil life mean.

Water is saturating my passenger side floorboard in my 2002 Tahoe. I've had a mechanic look at it and he check the normal compressor drain valve and blew it out, although my floorboard continues to get wet. I checked the drain valve again today while the compressor was on and it was blowing air out of it so I don't think it is clogged. I pulled up the carpet and couldn't tell where the water was coming from...Any ideas? Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
