I have had the same problem. You have to replace the panel where the fan/heat/AC controls are. The panels are not well made. I have had my Malibu for 8 years and have been through 3 panels. You can do it yourself it is very easy. 1) Remove the trim piece that surrounds the panel and the stereo. 2) remove the two screws that hold the panel in. 3) remove the connectors from the panel and replace with the new panel. The connectors will only attach one way.

When the light is blinking that means there is a code in the system you will have to take it to a shop and have the codes read. Sometimes "Jiffy Lube" or "Rapid Oil Change" can read the code for but they won't fix it. If the blower motor only runs on high, the blower motor resistor is bad. When you put the fan switch on high it puts full voltage to the fan motor (blower motor) when the fan switch is in any other position, the voltage is reduced by the resistor causing the motor to run at slower speeds. The two problems are probably a result of the resistor.
I had the same problem with my 2001 Malibu and solved it when a lady "T" boned my wife and I and totaled the car. The solution was a replacement used 2005 Malibu. The only problem now is that I can't turn my head and my wife gets panic attacks when we drive...but at least we are nice an cool!
The charging port is in the larger of the 2 AC lines from the AC compressor on the engine, it will be near to or in the round cannister (called an Accumulator) that larger AC line goes near the firewall at the back of the engine bay.
