By the way, all I'm talking about is an "idiot light" setup. I don't have a fancy temp gauge in my base malibu.

Thanks for the help so far, guys!
Resistance values from a 1997, are way different from a 1971.

You need to use the stock sender from the 1971 application. This will work correctly with your dash 'light'/gauges.
