Check Gauges?/ Oil Change?
OK im not sure if there even is a problem here but i feel like this is out of my "usual routine":
1) Get in car and turn key
2) wait for fuel pump and bell to stop ringing
*now heres the first issue... when i turn the keey all the lights go away minus (brake, air bag, check gauges, and oil change) i feel like check gauges never used to stay on and i KNOW oil change never used to stay on
3) Press Clutch and start car
4) all lights go away except oil change.. but if i drive it or give it just a couple revs it goes out. and im left with no lights
normal? i dont know.. what i did try already is check all my fluids. my power steering is a little low, coolant was a little low (no temp issues tho) and oil was fine and clean (changed maybe 1,500 miles ago)
should i be concerned?
ps after i check the coolant bottle i was curious and checked the radiator which seems to be kind of empty.. almost half empty? butt he bottle reads "full cold" .. which it is cause the car has sat over night and all morning
any help is appreciated and any questions will be answered right away cause ill have my bberry on me thanks guys2001 Camaro SS M6 SLP LMII, Lid

when i get in mine all the lights light up when i first turn on the key then all but the check gauges, service engine go off in a few seconds then when i start the car the check gauges goes away and service engine stays on due to headers and no rear 02s. My oil light flickers when its gettng close to change time

[QUOTE=Maro SS;2030384]welll yeah all lights at first... maybe if i wait a little longer check gauges will go out... im alittle more concerned with the oil change.. theres no visible problems with my oil.. could it be a dirty sensor?[/QUOTE]
Not likely.. You have to reset the change oil light. Turn your key on without starting the car. Then hold in on the trip reset button till the change oil light blinks and goes out. Release the button you should be golden then..

Its only monitors your miles.
Turn the ignition to run. "dont start"
Push the gas pedal to the floor 3 complete times
Turn the ignition off
Turn the ignition on and start the car and it will be reset..
