Sounds like you have a ground problem, i doubt its in the sending units as both gauges are acting strange work, seeing that electricity likes paths of least resistance one gauge could be grounding through another. Bad grounds wreak havoc on electrical systems.

    Bad grounds don't blow fuses, they "open" a working circuit and that function fails. A short blows fuses. Thre may be more than one Circuit being fed by that fuse and and line out from there can have a short on it or the circuit it feeds.

Cheak your fuse under the drivers side under the hood. Look in your manuel for fuel fuse. It looks like a little black box.

I cant find which fuse is the right one for the cigarette lighter on my 1998 chevy malibu


There is a fuse box under the hood. Most likely in front of engine and near battery. The fuse may be labeled "AUX PWR" or "CIGAR".

1997 chevy malibu stopped while driving on highway, no sounds, no warnings, just quit. Anyone has a similar problem. Car will not start anymore, attemps to, but just sputters.


I had the same problem with my 2002 Cheavy Malibu. First check the fuses under the drivers side under the hood. Look in your manuel to find the location for the fuel fuse location. If that doesnt work then look at your fuel filter.
