Chevrolet Malibu Owners: Problems & Solutions

Hi Joe, thanks for the Reply. I took apart the dash and instrument panel to check the bulbs. All were good. while I had the dash out i tested the dimmer switch and turn signal switch. after plugging in the turn signal switch i heard the fuse blow. replaced the fuse then heard an arc from the dome light. wires in the dome light had melted shorting out on the roof. Completely removing the light and wires back to the harness remedied the dash problem. They were totally fried. gonna find a better dome light. The design of this one is very poor and seemingly dangerous with the small gauge wires.  (Apr 6, 2014 | post #2707)

we have an 05 Chevy Malibu. during the day When the light switch is in the Auto Position the odometer lights up and so does the radio back-lighting. but both odometer and radio lights go out in the other two positions of the light switch. also at night in any position the radio doesnt show up and there is no back-lighting for the dash. All the dummie lights come on at startup though. Joe The Mechanic, I would love your input if you are still on here. Thanks, Mikey  (Apr 5, 2014 | post #2705)
