check gauges ! ?

hey guys, so just wondering if anyone could help me out. i have an 02 wrangler and just replaced my engine because i disintegrated a piston after 225k! the engine has 135k on it and now when i start it a check gauges light come on and starts beeping. all the gauges are reading fine no check engine light, its kinda of odd, and very annoying.! anyone with any suggestions? thanks.

Do you have an aftermarket alarm system? If so, there may be an issue with it. 225k on an 02? Wow. My 02 has 107k, maybe my wife will get off my back about it's "high mileage" now...not to make light of your situation!

Could you be getting a momentary bad gauge indication like temporary fast lived low oil pressure indication that you just haven't caught happening yet?
