So I have a 99 Malibu that's got most every sensor changed and shes got all new plugs and all that shit. Its runs wonderful just acts a little funky when shes cold or its dark out and I have my lights on- let me explain..
The lights will dim and go back and forth between being bright and dim. I can't have my a/c or heat on or she starts acting up. But the battery seems to be working fine. It always starts up and my car charger works with no complications to how the car runs when it's plugged in. Now someone told me it was my a/c pump and I'd like some feedback on that if anyone knows or have had this happen to their Malibu I'd like to know what you did and what you had to buy. There's just so much shit involved I don't want to buy too many parts when in fact it may only be a small fix ya know. So if you know anything that could help me out id be appreciated!
I had the same problem with my lights dimming/brightening and it turned out to be my ignition module. Costs about $100 and is easy to replace.

My 09 Malibu randomly chimes 3 times while driving. The gauges will drop, but come back quickly. I've only noticed it on longer drives (like over 20 miles), but it's almost every time I go on longer drives. There are no messages in the display. I've had it in and the tech ran the computer, but nothing showed up and he couldn't find anything wrong. Scares me every time it happens. Any ideas?

I have a 1999 Chevy Malibu, i replaced the water pump a few months ago, the A/C had also stop blowing cold air; other than that it was running fine until 2 days ago on my way home from work it started to run hot i made it home and put Dex coolant in it, but it still continued to run hot what could possibly be the problem?

Sounds like the muffler fuse might be blown.

I'd guess it's inside the fuse box with the other fuses .

Get yourself a soldering iron and connect it to a long extension cord. Plug in the cord, turn on the soldering iron, give it time to get hot and then place it on the carpet in front of the passenger seat. Then you leave and don't ever look back.

I have the same problem with my 2002 Chevy Malibu LS, it's not just the hazard switch itself, you have to replace the wire harness it plugs into under the dashboard, I'm not sure where to get the wire harness you can get one at the junkyard and cut it splice the wires or go to the dealer and try to get a new wiring harness if you want to do it yourself. of course you're not smart enough to figure that ot the dealership. they're just being lazy. ItIt can also cause your car to turn off while driving because it shorts out. you may also have to replace the ignition key cylinder. when that gets worn out your pass lock system on the dashboard will not let your car start. I spray wd40 into the key ignition and it helps for a little while but it needs to be replaced. I hope it helps good luck.
