1997 Chevy Malibu engine fans not coming on-relays are testing fine-ETC sensor and wiring already replaced. Not overheating but WANTS TO...I stop car when temp reaches next mark after halfway on dash...

There are three relays in the underhood electrical center. They are directly controlled the the PCM. The PCM gets it's information from the coolant temp switch that is on the engine. On the PCM, Pin 54(dark green wire) in connector C2 controls the ground to the relay 1. Pin 59(dark blue wire) on the same connector controls the ground to relay 2. If you supply a ground to these, you will turn the fans on. What you need to figure out is if the ECT is telling the PCM what the temp is, (more likely cause) or you have a PCM malfunction(least likely cause).

Chevy Malibu 2000 A/C control turns on and off.

I had the same problem and fixed it myself. You need to remove the In-Dash climate control unit, open it up and re-seolder the connections for the ac switch. It won't hurt to clean the contacts on the control knobs with alcohol. More information on the repair can be found at

My dash on my 1998 chevy malibu went out as i was trying to install my after market deck. i dont know if the wires crossed or something just went out. i go to turn on my headlights and the dash dims and i...

Evidently, you shorted out something. Strange that the accessory / dash fuse hasn't blown. 1) Unhook the CD, tape all the loose wires and see if dashboard operates normally. 2) make sure you are hooking the CD yellow wire (battery) and the red wire (ignition) to the proper sources. A normal CD installation has nothing to do with the dash/ dimmer circuit.

I hove 1998 jimmy heat works good ,when i change

The switch that controls the defrost, heater and vent settings have gone bad and needs to be replaced. Auto Zone should have that part or you can do the Salvage Yard for around $10.00. The switch that controls the setting has a diaphragm and when it fails, the vacuum from the air lines starts to make the sound you hear and there is not enough pressure to engage vent doors. It take about 20 min to replace from start to finish and your only going to remove two screws from the dash over the instrument panel, the trim panel around the stereo and climate control just clips in place. You don't have to remove the trim panel, it's to much of a pain. the climate control is held on by 4 bolts and the vent setting is held on by one bolt. Once you have the climate control panel unbolted from the dash, disconnect the vent control vacuum lines and then replace the vent control switch. Once replaced, put everything back together in reverse the way you took it apart. Good luck and check that the new vent control works before you put everything back together, just be take caution when you have the engine running to check.
