Asked by Sep 01, 2015 at 11:22 AM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can be driving down the road, and all of my gauges stop working, but yet I can still drive. the power streering is kind of tough. but radio and everything else works while those things stop working. usually after this happens my car wont start after I turn it off. it is NOT the battery. when I try to start it. there is no turn over at all. radio still comes on but gauges all stay at zero. even the gas gauge will stay at zero when I have a full tank of gas.

ground problem sounds like check the grounds under the hood and see if one of them is loose they are on the core suport and the side over by the battery I believe
