Re: 01 malibu fuel and temp gauge inop
Any lights on in the dash? Are the gauge needles in the sweep of the gauge or are they, in the case of the fuel gauge below E even though you have plenty of fuel? Sometimes if you disconnect the battery, when you reconnect it, the cluster sees a voltage spike and will drive the needles out of their normal sweep. The easiest fix is to pull out the cluster and kind of shake the cluster to work the needles around to where they're supposed to be. Some guys use a paper clip and through the trip reset button get the needle back to the proper place. Get back to us and tell us where the gauge needles are pointing and if you have any tell tale lights on in the instrument cluster.
