Security light comes on while driving, gauges quit working
I am new to this forum. Did a lot searching on this particular problem but no joy.
1998 S10 2.2L Automatic
Occasionally while driving my gauges go out, or in some cases give innacurate displays. From the bottom up: Gear selection does not show. Oil pressure zeros out. Amps zeros out. Gas gauge zeros out. Speedometer innacurate - slower than actual. RPMs inaccurate - lower than actual. Several of the top warning lights light up, including security light.
The truck still runs fine. If I shut it off, the security light stays lit. The truck still starts and runs.
So far it has not be much of a problem other than trying to guess how fast I am going. But...I am afraid that whatever this problem is, it will get worse with time.
Has anyone got an idea what is malfunctioning - and how to fix it?
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
