SOURCE: why doesn't my dashboard gauges work

I just fixed this on my '96 Voyager. The problem was caused by a loose pin where the wiring harness plugs into the circuit board behind the gauges. It takes a little work to get the instrument cluster out of the car and then some soldering skills. Look for where the plug pins are attached to the back of the circuit board. One pin on mine showed a little circle shaped crack. Re solder the loose pin and you are good to go. Actually I re soldered all 13 pins just in case.

SOURCE: Where does the flasher go on a 98 chevy malibu

Replacement The turn and hazard flashers are integrated into one flasher on these models. The flasher is located in the hazard warning switch and the hazard warning switch is located on the trim plate. Replace the flasher by unplugging the old one, removing it from the panel, and plugging in the new one.

  1. Remove the bezel from the ignition switch.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

SOURCE: gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on

This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Plymouth

There have been several issues with the instrument clusters in the Voyagers and Caravans. The circuit board can have cold solders at the plug connection causing an intermittent failure of the instruments. The fix is to remove the trim under the dash, around the steering wheel and in front of the cluster. This can be done with just a phillips screwdriver and some patience. Once this is out of the way there are 4 screws that hold in the cluster. Remove the cluster, and with a low temp solder gun, heat the solder points where the plug connects until they are liquid and reset themselves. Reassemble the cluster and check them before you put the dash assembly back together.

Well you've lost power to one or two major circuits. Could be a problem with the key switch or a major fuse in the engine compartment.
I would check the fuses for power and find out which ones are dead then go from there.

98 Chevy Malibu won't start


If it cranks then it is turning over but I think you are saying it will not fire up. Either way Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals with sandpaper until you see shiny
metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Have a load test done on the battery to check for failed cell.

I own a 2008 Chevy Malibu and none of my gauges are working. They are all stuck on zero even while I'm driving. How do I fix this problem?


check fuses. did this happen all of the sudden? did you or someone recently change the stereo, reason I ask this is there is a continuous power wire that connects the factory stereo to the guage panel usually a yellow wire, and if it's no longer connected or incorrectly connected then that would cause your gauges not to work

You have some wiring problems shorting out that is coming from the dash board so if you or anyone you know how to use a multimeter to check the wireing harnesses plus check any connectors that might be just very touching the connector of dashboard which means a bad connection to dashboard.

weird...first thing to do is get a scanner hooked up to see what caused the check engine light-free, at pretty much any retail auto parts operation-i wouldn't get overly concerned with the gas gauge right now, teh code that tripped the check engine light might explain that problem.

i suppose you have checked all the fuses and they all checked ok,the fuel gauge may be reading incorrectly due to a faulty sending unit which is mounted in the fuel pump module in the fuel tank,and the instrument lights may not work because the multi function switch may be faulty ,other than that you could have a electrical problem

We had a similar situation. It took the dealer a few days to figure out it was an issue with the wiring harness(es) in the center console - around or behind the transmission shifter.
