It is a blown fuse. Check your manual and you will find there is one fuse that takes care of all of these things.

2002 chevy malibu cranks wont start. fuel and temp gauge dont work. radio reads cal


Cranks won't start , Did you check for spark ,fuel pressure ?
Radio Setup .Will the vehicle communicate with a scan tool ? Fuel an temp gauges not working are probably bad step motors inside the instrument cluster that controls the gauges . Where do the gauges read 0 or something else ?
Engine Coolant Temperature Gage
The IPC displays the engine coolant temperature as determined by the PCM. The body control module (BCM) receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine coolant temperature. The BCM converts the engine coolant temperature into a percent gage deflection. The IPC receives a message from the BCM via the serial peripheral interface (SPI) indicating the requested gage position. The engine coolant temperature gage defaults to 38°C (100°F) or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.


?€¢
The BCM detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of SPI communications with the BCM.

Fuel Gage
The IPC displays the fuel level as determined by the PCM. The body control module (BCM) receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the fuel level percent. The BCM converts the fuel level percent into a percent gage deflection. The IPC receives a message from the BCM via the serial peripheral interface (SPI) indicating the requested gage position. The fuel gage defaults to E (empty) if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit.


?€¢
The BCM detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of SPI communications with the BCM.

When the fuel level is less than a pre-determined value, the low fuel indicator illuminates.
DTC P0462
The fuel level sensor changes resistance based on fuel level. The PCM monitors the signal circuit of the fuel level sensor in order to determine fuel level. When the fuel tank is full, the sensor resistance is high and the PCM senses a high signal voltage. When the fuel tank is empty, the sensor resistance is low and the PCM senses a low signal voltage. The PCM uses the signal circuit of the fuel level sensor in order to calculate the total remaining fuel in the tank. The PCM sends the fuel level percent via the class 2 serial data circuit to the body control module (BCM). The BCM converts this data and sends a fuel gage percent deflection to the IPC via the serial peripheral interface (SPI) in order to control the fuel gage. The fuel level information is also used for misfire and EVAP diagnostics.

Have
For the DE 100 series radio, complete the following procedure, using a scan tool, in order to properly set up communication:

  1. At the Main Menu screen, select: Diagnostics.
  2. At the Vehicle Identification screen, select the following options:
  3. ?€¢
    Model Year


    ?€¢
    Passenger Car

  4. At the System Selection Menu screen, select: Body.
  5. At the Vehicle Identification screen, select the Platform type.
  6. At the Body screen, select: Radio.
  7. At the Radio screen, select: Special Functions.
  8. At the Special Functions screen, select: Radio Setup.
  9. At the Radio Setup screen, press ENTER. The following test will set up a new or existing radio.
  10. Select one of the following options:
  11. ?€¢
    USA/Canada


    ?€¢
    Export

  12. Press the ENTER key.
  13. Verify that the scan tool displays "Test in Progress."
  14. Verify that the scan tool displays "Test Completed Successfully."
  15. Press EXIT on the scan tool.
Important: The radio set up will configure the following systems:
?€¢
LEARN VIN


?€¢
Diagnostic Trouble Codes


?€¢
Class 2 Radio Messages


?€¢
Country Code


?€¢
Chime Volume


?€¢
Chime Level


?€¢
12/24 Hour Clock

Without learning the VIN, the radio will display a locked message (LOC).
The radio setup procedure will also clear the following messages:
?€¢
CAL


?€¢
CAL ERR


?€¢

2002 chevy malibu blows 10 amp fuse seconds after start, controls ac cool fan and gas gauge and temp gauge


Are you sure ?
The gauges and the blower should be on different circuits. The blower uses a 30amp fuse or bigger.

Just had a new fuel pump installed in 2002 Chevy Malibu. Worked great for about a week and then the fuel gauge started reading "empty" when the car has a full tank of gas. What happened?

2005 Chevy Malibu Classic. Car will not start. Passlock has already been disabled. The Radio, AC temperature, fuel indicator and alarm does not work. It comes on and off at random times. The trunk pops...


What aftermarket stuff have you had installed ? any ? Radio etc.....
What alarm does not work ? Content theft ? How is pass lock disabled ? AC temperature ????? Do you own a factory or professional grade scan tool ? Will all the modules on the vehicle communicate with the scan tool ? GM had a problem with instrument clusters ,step motors ! That could be your fuel gauge problem , plus the solder they used , have you heard of silver migration .Just guessing as to a problem never fixed anything , that's all anyone on here would be doing , guessing . Testing electrical circuits ,power an grounds . Loaded circuit voltage testing, voltage drop testing etc.. Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing , how to read an use a wiring diagram to pin point test areas . Do you know what C.A.N. is controller area network , a serial data ,communication network for the modules on the vehicle . How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN

You have no idea of the complexity of the electronics on your vehicle , The BCM , radio , HVAC , Instrument cluster , ABS , PCM/ECM , SRS , an others are all hooked to to the data bus ,or network , all it takes is one module to act up to bring the whole system down , causing no start problems ! Hooking up a scan tool is the first step .

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

Fuel gauge, temp gauge, and auto door locks stopped working while in transit. checked obvious fuses, found no problems. did not check all fuses. Ideas


I had a similar problem with a 2001 Saturn. We checked every fuse and they were all fine. We finally did a 'reset' on the car's computer by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it a few minutes later. Everything was back to normal after that.

2002 Chevy Malibu radio won't turn off when car is shut off, gas & water gage won't work.


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.

Fuel & Temperature Gage problem


hi check the simple things first fuses then take the temperture senders wire off and ground it get someone to watch the temp gauge if the gauge is ok it will move straight into the hot if so change the sender switch then do the same with the fuel tanks sender unit wire if gauge is ok it will show full now presumming the gauges are moving and the fuses are ok the problem is on the clocks some cars have a removeable stablizer between the gauges if so it is a simple fix yates210456
