Re: 99 malibu...temp gauge & AC

Is yours a manual a/c system (no digital readout for temp control) if so read on:

Does the green a/c indicator light go off as well-- if so wiggle the fan speed switch- it acts as the "Master" on-off switch for a/c- and the contacts get hardened grease on them that disables the a/c command-- seen a bunch of them. Fix is to remove blower switch and polish the contact surface area with a pencil eraser....
