Question about 2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

Open Question

2006 Malibux Maxx Cluster Needles will not light. All other lighting on the car is working properly. The car was purchased used and test driven during the day, so the problem was not discovered until a few days after the purchase. I I had the electrical system checked today and was told that the needles are not designed to light without HID headlights. I was made aware that the car had been in an accident and the left headlight replaced. The headlights are not HID. Could this problem be related to improper headlights?

If you have tilt, tilt the wheel down. Pull the trim plate from around the instrument panel. Remove the screws that hold the switch in.(should be 7mm.)

there's a button on the right side of the steering wheel that says serv push that button. It's put right there for when they use them as police cars you can cut the headlights off. You will probably notice that dash lights are on.

SOURCE: 2004 Cavalier Day/dim lights not working

I finally got mine fixed!! It was the crossover wires between headlights(the wires that run in front of the radiator). One wire was torn into. Spliced them and taped back together. Hope this works for you!! I also used something called wire caps that help hold the spliced wires together. I found this solution on yahoo.com search engine where someone else had suggested this. My only problem was no dim lights, but all the other lights worked fine.

Did you replace the relay for the day time running lights which for some dumb reason is mounted under the front bumper? Climb under and look straight up and you should see it...mine was mounted in about the center (on the frame in front of the radiator. Sounds similar to an issue I had and it cleared up once I replaced the part...had to get from dealer still.

SOURCE: 2006 Malibu Maxx ss hard shifting/Check engine light

There is no dip stick. Its most likely not the fluid. These malibu's use the first generation GM LAN system. Check the data cord comming from the transmission near the mechanical shifting linkage. Alot of these shifting issues and errors are from a break in the wiring causing bad data to be sent/rvcd to/from the computer control module- these cars are electronically controled shifted, not mechanical.

Insturment panel is not working


An instrument cluster is the collection of gauges, dials and lights right above the steering wheel that tell you what's going on in your vehicle.
Generally, your car's instrument cluster will last the lifetime of the car and you'll never have a problem with any of them. However, when one of them fail, you'll have a problem that ranges from mildly annoying (the engine lights up and doesn't turn off) to inconvenient (the gas gauge doesn't register) to dangerous (the oil indicator doesn't work). Some of the more common failures include:
  • Erratic or non-functional gauges & inaccurate readings.
  • LCD not Stuck or fluttering needles on gauges
  • Burned out indicator lights
  • Burned out/dark spot backlighting
  • Loss of LCD display or erratic operation (number 8 showing as 0

Is there a fuse that protects the tachometer and temperature gage?


wow not even saying what it dont do?
the back light dead or needles dead?
sure all loads on every car made has a fuse
(cept starter)
why not post the full symptoms of what works or not.
then ask how to diagnosis it.,
does car run, and shift ok, doe head lights work
do the warning lights work in the cluster, keyon, no start?

the 1996 suzuki has the only free service

chapter 8a-81

no the IG-coil fuse runs the tachometer (electrics )
if IG-coil blows, engine dies.as does cluster lamp test. dead.

the speedometer is not electric its cable driven
is the odometer dead? if yes the cable is dead.

key on , all cluster lamps must glow
or IG coil is blown fuse or battery dead, or main fuse in engine bay blown.

1997 mustang instument cluster problems


If the warning lights work we will assume the fuse for "cluster" or "gauges" is good, so the problem may be in the printed circuit board inside the cluster. I can't tell if there is more than one power wire for the cluster from the fuse box.

I have seen this before and found the Dash insert is defective, Go to address 17 and carry out a final control segment test for the dash when the fault occurs also make sure there are no battery management fault codes.

Restriction of functions
The following are deactivated in the event of
active load intervention by the battery and
energy management system:
- Interior lighting
- Sunroof
- Light/humidity sensor
- Interior mirror

Check you ambient in car lighting settings in the mmi user functions for current settings
