    The light that serves the tachometer and part of the speedometer has gone out and I was told that the bulbs cant be chagned, you have to purchase the entire dashboard assembly

    sounds like a fuse but you need to roll your dash light switch a few times and see if it is sticking or not working right .. just a thought Jerry

I switched the entire row of fuses, and my dash still did not come on. The Maxx has 3 fuse panels, one under the hood, one in the car and one in the trunk. It should be the unit in the car, but I'm stumped.

2001 Chev Malibu. Turn key on to start car, won't start. No warning lights on no lights on gauge panel. Radio works, dome light work.


check the ground leg to your engine.. it runs off the neg. battery terminal. will connect to frame and engine.. pull it off, wire brush it put it back.. you radio will work, 'cause it draws much less current, and is grounded in dash.

2008 malibu dashboard lights are partially out


unfortunately you have the daunting task of taking the dash apart. before doing that though I would check all of my fuses and relays it's much easier and quicker. i would hate to take a dash apart just to find out it was a fuse all along

I have a "check this light" on. the dsahboard. What is the meaning of the symbol on the dashboard on the lower right? I cannot identify it.


Hi, there should be warning lights under and around the Temp gauge. Listed are the lights starting at the top of the Gauge and going clockwise the first being AIRBAG, CHECK ENGINE, DOOR AJAR, COOLANT LEVEL, BATTERY and OIL.
Hope this helps you identify your mystery light

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.

Why do the dashboard gauges work sometimes and not other times


This model always this problem, usually after about 90,000 miles and the other instruments will eventually follow. There are companies that will repair this for you just use google (instrumentclusters.com) to find them. I was charged 185.00 for the repair... GM wanted over 500.00!
