i think it stands for traction control. most cars with that say ETC which stands for electronic traction control. if you have a manual for the car it should say what it is.

2005 Malibu classic day time running lights resistor how to fine it

Hey Joe , the resistor you refer to is actually a light sensitive transistor , an it's called an ambient light sensor ! It is located in the top center of the dash pad , that little round bulb ! To replace it you have to Remove the instrument panel (I/P) trim pad. Are your Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) Inoperative ?
  1. Expose the ambient light sensor to a bright incandescent lamp.
  2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  3. Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position.
  4. Ensure the parking brake is disengaged.
  5. Block the wheels.
  6. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
Do the daytime running lights (DRL) illuminate?

06 chevy malibu daylight sensor dropped into dash

Just remove the windshield pillar moldings and then you will be able to pop up that whole panel that goes across behind the dash part. Then you can reinstall that sensor. Gotta remove the moldings first.

Dashboard light on temp control switch does not light up on driver's side

turn on the lights & switch, smack the top of the dash a couple times.
if the light comes on..then you have a loose bulb in the back of the panel,
if not, the bulb is bad, consisting of removeing the cover for the instrument
cluster, removing the speedo head to get to the back side for bulb replacement..( make sure to disconnect the Battery before performing
this chore) i hope this helps !! Merry Christmas !!

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

I just need a diagram of fuse slots for a 97 chevy malibu the dashboard/instrument panel is out and the car has no book

just get a electrical tester just the cheap ones with a light and a ground wire and test them all it only takes a minute all the normal colored fuses have little metal spots on the top of each fuse one on each side turn on your lights and turn signals (hazards) and just touch the tester to both spots on the fuse if you have power on one side but not the other the fuse is blown power to both sides its good if there is no little metal tabs on the tops you can pull them out half way and check at there prongs or get a multimeter and check the ohms it should be 000s or close to thats what i do when i cant find a diagram
