I have a 2003 chevy malibu. I'm having problems with my blinker lights. They don't always work when I turn them on and at other times they work just fine. What could cause this?

Hello and welcome. this is almost always the hazard switch. inside the hazard switch is the turn and hazard flasher. the next time the turns dont work, try pushing in and out on the hazard switch and see if they come back on.

2005 Chevy Malibu the gas guage has stopped working. The guage will go from full to empty over and over. The gas cap light comes on and now my engine light is on constantly. How do I get this fixed for...

hey the reason your gas gauge is going from full to empty is that your fuel pump which is in the gas tank has a sensor that relays how much gas the tank has in it, the sensor is gone bad and will have to be replaced. And your engine light problem is probley due to putting gas in the car while it is running, my wife has a 2005 malibu and we have had the same problems with her car hope this was helpful

The usual problem for all the lights going on is the ignition switch.Not the cylinder the switch.What happens is the switch furnishes power to everything and when the switch goes bad you loose power and all the lights will come on.You can always get the alternator checked you don`t have to replace it.If your in doubt.Most part stores will do this for free.Hope this helps.Good luck.
