I am also an owner of a 2003 Chevy Malibu. It has been a great car until the last few months. Beginning about a year ago, I'm stuck in a nightmare of what seems to be electrical issues. I believe my issues may all be a product stemming from the Ignition System Recall # 14350. I'm going to a Chevy dealer to have the necessary repairs made. Afterwards, maybe it will be clearer as to what is going on with my car. The recall repairs do not cost the vehicle owner any money!!!
I cannot recall how the fuses are marked, but the fuse box is located under the hood on the right for the horn, cig lighter and the charger/accessory plug-in. There are two (2) fuse boxes on the 2003 Chevy Malibu. One (1) fuse box located under the hood on the right, towards the the back firewall and the second is inside the vehicle, to the right of the drivers door (near the floor). If you are looking for the fuses for the horn, lighter and the accessories plug, next to go will be the remote door lock, then the automatic door locks, then the blinkers will not work or work intermittently. Using the auto door lock will cause the blinkers to malfunction but flipping the auto door lock a few times will also get the blinkers to function properly again.
Dont feel bad i have been mechanicing 40 years and i cant do fuses myself sometimes!! Should be marked on the fuse panel either under the hood or on each side of the dash I THINK. Open both front doors and you should see a cover that pulls off to acess fuses, on the inside of the panel should show what each fuse is for.
Didn't find what you were looking for?
