Question about Cars & Trucks
Are all of the wiring harness connections good ? Is the alternator turning in the correct direction ? And is it charging the battery ?
As for the temp gauge, the sensor grounds the gauge, so you may have a short to ground in the wiring harness.

SOURCE: low coolant light
I have a 97 Cutlass. The low coolant light is on as well. After talking to some of my mechanic buddy's this is a know problem with this model of vehicle (Cutlass/Malibu). You can either replace the coolant reservoir with the sensor or just ignore the problem as even with replacing the parts it is likely to come back on.
Hope this helps

Hi ! first ,does your a/c compressor kick in when you turn on the a/c ? if it does but your fans dont then check for blown fuses ,if all fuses are good then if you have a test light see if you have power going to the fans with the a/c on .if you have power then you may have a bad fan ,that can cause your temp to go up ,try that and get back to us!

Sounds dumb and you've probably already tried this but I would double check the fuse box to see if there are any blown fuses. I would replace the fuse to the guages regardless if it looks blown or not as a starting point.
