Did this video help you?

Blackdragon79: I have a 03 chevy Malibu. I noticed just like in your car the switch has 2 defrost/floor settings. Why is that?

Marco Topete: Wow!!!! This was so annoying and almost bought a new panel for $127 this morning. Followed the instructions in This video and saved myself the money. Thank you!

Brandon Harrell: my 99 malibu is giving me problems. right now the heat is stuck on and i cant get it to switch to cold. sometimes it will switch on its own to cold but then i cant get it to blow hot air. so what is the issue??

Steve Burke: Thank you so much. Our 2002 Malibu had all the deteriorating symptoms of AC cycling and then just finally stopped coming on at all. I used electrical contact cleaner and Q-tips and bent the contact ins up about 1/8". Getting the face plate out of case was the most difficult part. I slipped in folded business cards on each of the 8 tabs as I would release each one, that made it pretty quick. We were getting ready to sell the car but might keep it now that the AC is blowing cold and staying on. Thanks again for a great how-to!

Megan Harding: Mine worked for about a month and it's back to switching

Harold Terranova (HaroldT101): Sure wish I seen this before I bought a new control panel. Hope they will take it back.  This worked just like you described and from start  From to finish 25 mins!  Cold air blowing at all fan speeds.  Thanks

Karim Daoud: Hey man, thank you so much. I just got done taking care of this issue. and it didn't take much time at all. I'm NOT Mr fixer either! thanks a million.

michael272921: Your the man, thought it might be a bad compressor, this fixed it, not sure how long it will last, but appreciate your sharing sir.

sunaookami: Thank you so much! My ac is working beautifully now!

nvalluco R22: Nice

Cody Sauceda: That's what I did, it's working perfect

L.A. B.: What is graphite? I it a lead pencil?

Jason Bryant: Worked like a charm! Thanks!

Scott Baillie: Thank you so much! Followed this step by step and fixed a five year old problem in 20 minutes. Works great now!

Jessica Lewis: so how did you know it what that circuit board being dirty?

Danielle McFadden: Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for sharing this tip. I have paid mechanics several times to find out why my air would go off and on. I didn't have the socket set so I went to my local auto parts store and used theirs. I set in the parking lot and did this. I didn't have alcohol so I used hand sanitizer. I'm so grateful for this video.

bagofnailsbon: Thanks! I just did this on my 98 Olds Curlass and the a/c stays on now. I asked a mechanic to look at this and he refused, saying the a/c just needed a charge. That cost me $100 and did not fix it. This video helped me correct the problem myself. Thanks again!

pljanes: Wow.  Thank you so much.  Excellent video, made the job quick and easy.  A/C works perfectly.

quatromilpas: Thanks for posting this video. Just completed the repair today and the AC is working...good thing cuz it's been hotter than hell now for a stretch. What I found was easy when putting it back together was to take the faceplate and turn it facing down and then dropping the four small push buttons into the faceplate, then drop the clear plastic piece down, and lastly putting the back piece with the circuit board and snapping it together.

Lewis McMillion: Worked like a charm! I didn't have any rubbing alcohol on hand so I just used a pencil eraser to clean it but it worked. I did, however, push the connectors on the nobs up a bit to connect better.
