Im kinda confused. Lately my check gauges light comes on. Only when i turn thou, or shift the weight in the car.

Ive check my fluids, Oil is fine, power steering is fine, coolant is fine. So im a bit confused at what it could be.

Any suggestions?

This light will come on when the key is in the ON position and the:
- engine coolant temperature gauge is high, or
- engine oil pressure gauge is low, or
- when the fuel tank has reached empty reserve.

This light serves as a reminder for you to check the engine coolant temperature gauge, the engine oil pressure gauge or the fuel gauge. It will come on if there is a condition that needs your attention.
I would guess either you are low on gas or it is something dealing with that if your oil pressure isn't dipping low when are turning or stopping.

If brake fluid was low, the Brake light would illuminate, not check gauges.

Does your Oil Sender move when you do this? I've heard that the senders go bad. If that is the case (you have a good oil level and the sender is indeed bad) then it would be a good time to upgrade to a real pressure sender (look at the articles in progress).
