The check gauges light comes on when one of the gauges is out of its safe range. It could be the alternator over or under charging, oil pressure low, or the engine overheating.

I have a 2000 Malibu and it also had a faulty anti-theft system and the car would not start if it was flashing. So, we turn the ignition forward until all the gauges and lights come on but not starting the car and leave in this position for 10 mins. (it will stop flashing) then turn the key all the way off, then start the car in one swift motion. .........I hope this helps
1999 Jeep Cherokee quit running and am getting a code that says no buS. Engine will not start Fuel pump wont come on and gauges don't work. I replaced ECM and it did not help. Now What?
It means that the hydraulics which operate your fuel and temperature gauges may be leaking or damaged. One or more of the gauges is out of the normal operating range when engine is running. It could be the oil pressure gauge is reading to low, the temperature gauge is reading to high or the voltmeter is reading to low so, check the gauges.
Ok. Most people do not know this, but, the "on" position of the key, without the engine running, is a diagnostic point. When you do this, all of the red, yellow, or whatever color lights should all come on, telling you that they all work. All electric gauges should pin, confirming their operation. Now, when you go to the start mode, all kinds of things are happening voltage wise, so some bouncing around will occur.
Why would the dash cluster lights on a 2002 Chevy Suburban start flashing and the speedometer tachometer and gauges only work intermittantly?
99 Acura TL and every once and a while all the lights on the dash will start flashing and your gauges jump around then they go back to normal Anyone know what the problem might be?
The check gauges light usually means that one of the gauges is out of its normal range. It could be due to an overheat, a under/over charging alternator, low oil pressure.... Because one or more of the gauges is not in the safe zone. ie: over/under charging, overheating, low oil pressure..... Either your engine temperature is too high , your oil pressure is too low , or your gas gauge is at or near empty
You got a 94 supra non turbo the gauges keep flashing on and off then the motor sound like it wants to die until it does any clue on what in can be?
Seems kinda crazy but GM started adding that warning light to its cars and trucks in the early 90's. This light comes on when you first start the car (along with many of the other warning lights) so that you can verify that the light bulbs in all those warning lights are working and not burned out. BUT, if the CHECK GAUGES warning light comes on while driving, it means one or more of the…
Had the same problem on two occasions with my 99 Blazer...sounds as though your alternator is going bad. The car will run good while the battery is charged up, but as the battery wears down, the engine will run poorly and the gauges will operate erratically. Eventually, the battery will not have enough energy to allow the engine to run, and it will stall.
