Does the radio stay on throughout the night? Did the gauge issue happen at the same time as the radio issue? If yes you may have a defective ignition switch, but if not, and the issues are separate, then they need to be listed and dealt with separately.

In a 2001 Chevy Malibu what would cause the gas gage, temp gage, heat/ac, radio, windows, and cruise control to stop working all at once?


Bad ground. You have several of them on the inside of the car. There are a couple on the steering column. one one each side of the car. Under the kick panels on the drivers and passenger side. These have several wires going the a ground plug. Mounted to the body.

Won't turn over. The instrument cluster won't work


ok iif the instrument cluster does not work.. before i give a solution can you tell me if it have atach and temp gage not a temp gage witha idiot light but a actual temp gage.. because if temp gage and fule gage hands are not in their proper place like if yo uhave a 1/4 tank of gas and it reads way past full and the temp gage is gone out of site way past say 240 degrees then it is your speedo head .. have this trouble the other day on a chevy 2002 cavalier.. replaced the head and wahla the car started. it seems the speedo head is tied in with the computer system on these cars.. and if the tach is not working you need not worry if you cannot find a head with a built in tach.. a normal speedo head with out the tach part will also work.. just when you change the head count the pins on the old one and compare it to the new one if they match then just plug it in and car should start..

Anti theft has locked out the fuel can i run 12 volts into fuel pump to bypass anti theft


No, that won't work. The antitheft system shuts down the injectors not the fuel pump. You can bypass it with some resistors from radio shack but the easiest way to fix it is to replace the ignition lock cylinder. This is usually what is wrong.

2002 chev malibu gas gage gose to empty E with a full tank of gas


its a problem with your sending unit most likly. its in your gas tank and tells your gauge how much gas is in your tank. I had a chevy truck and a blazer and both of them had this problem. I believe its a problem with all chevy models in my opinon. I would most definatly say that its your sending unit.

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.

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!

Chevy 2002 malibu radio wont turn off


First of all, make sure your iginition switch is completely in the off position or your radio will stay on. I had problems with this and all I had to do was make sure my shifter was locked in the park position (try jiggling it around in park until it clicks). If that doesn't help, the fuse for the radio is located on the passenger side of the vehicle on the side of the dashboard- you have to open your door to access it.
