Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
All the gauges in the cluster stopped working and the odometer. But all the lights in the cluster still work.
The instrument cluster operates independantly of the lighting for them. You could possibly have a fuse somewhere that has blown causing all gauges to stop, or it could potentially be that the cluster itself is bad and needs replaced or this could be a sign of a wireing harness failure of the instrument cluster. I'm afraid your best bet is to take it in and have it looked at by someone trained in dealing with those parts of the system.

SOURCE: dash gauges not working
Check the large multi-pin connector in the electronics bay in the engine compartment. The bay is a fairly large black plastic box on the driver's side. Open it and disconnect the largest connector inside (one screw). Spray electrical contact cleaner on the pins and re-mate the connector. This worked on my '99 with the exact same problem. You can find other examples of this with a Google search. It may not solve your problem (could also be a wiring harness problem), but it is incredibly simple and worth a shot.

SOURCE: gauges and odometer don't work
unfurtanetely the the board is burned out due to moisture on the wiring, you may have to replace the board but keep in mind that the wiring must be dry.

I had all my analog instrument panel gauges stop working after they did the state emissions test. I found the proper fuse in the fuse block located under the hood. Simply unplugged the fuse, noticed it was still good, and plugged the same fuse (10A) back in and all the gauges started working again. Guess it needed a reset atfer they plugged in for the emissions.
