The ECM(engine control module) is located below the instrument panel, behind the driver side hush-panel.
List for an original Chevy unit is around $420
Most shops will charge around 1hr to install, and another 1/2 hour to program the new computer.
You can save a little money by purchasing a rebuilt computer from places like www.rockauto.com, or local auto stores near you, but they will charge you a core charge until you give them your old one.
I hope this helps and please let me know if I can be of further assistance. -TXTEXAN

My 2003 malibu shut down and a light came on saying something about a safety mode...anyone have an idea as to the problem?


Your owner's manual may shed some light on the warning light.
You may need to have the engine computer checked for codes to know where to start testing. So it may need to be towed to a shop.

I need to change the Coolant Temperature Sensor on my 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. I rarely know anything about cars, but the mechanic shops charge too much. Please help. I need detailed instructions or a...


This is a little much to give you the detailed instruction that this job will require. Presuming you have the tools to do this job, go to the library and get the Motor Manual for the 1993 vintage vehicles and review the secion on coolant sensors.

Warning, this may be more than you want to get involved with. If you are not able to go completely through this procedure, the repair will be more costly than the original sensor replacement.

Location of the Heat resistor in a 2003 Chevy Malibu?


Under the glove box, behind the blower motor itself. Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

I dont know where it is


it is located behind the power steering pump. You need to remove the power steering pump to get to it which requires removing the engine mount next to it to get the bottom bolt out of the power steering pump. The sensor is directly behind the power steering pump. You can follow the cable that goes behind the pump. It is the only one there.

Good call emissionwiz. It's right behind the blower motor, under the glove box area. Remove the shroud below the glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light.
