    Just some information; The engine computer goes through some checks before it will engage the a/c relay. One of these checks is engine temperature. If the engine coolant temp sensor is malfunctioning or the connection to it may be corroded it will not allow the a/c to work. Test for the reason the temp is not reading correctly, and it would normally 'Not" be a fuse issue.

    I'm having the identical problem; 2006 Malibu Maxx, a/c and temp gauge stopped working (blower works but compressor doesn't cycle on) at the exact same time. Anyone else having this issue?

    Engine temp? Have the temp sensor checked, possible dirty connector or possible sensor.
