SOURCE: Chevy Malibu Trunk Problem

Sounds like your automatic trunk release is binding or stalled and needs to be replaced. Check the owners manual to see where the fuse is for the trunk release and verify that the fuse is ok. Sometimes if you press down on the trunk, it is easier to open the release manually. I don't have a Malibu but the rear hatch release in my SUV and in many of my friends vehicles has acted up in this manner.

SOURCE: replacing spark plugs on a 2004 chevy malibu

2.2L Engine

  1. Observe the following service precautions:

    Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove spark plugs from a hot engine can cause the spark plugs to seize. This can damage the cylinder head threads. Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so can result in engine damage due to dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or in contamination of the cylinder head threads. Contaminated threads may prevent proper seating of the new spark plug. Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
  2. Turn the ignition OFF .
  3. Disconnect the Electronic Ignition (EI) module harness connector.
  4. Remove the spark plugs using a 5 / 8 inch spark plug socket.

To install:

WARNING Do not coat spark plug threads with anti-seize compound. If anti-seize compound is used and spark plugs are over-torqued, damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
  1. Inspect the gap on the new spark plugs, re-gap the plugs as required. The spark plug gap specification is 42 inch. (1.0 mm).
  2. Install the spark plugs and tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  3. Apply dielectric compound to the spark plug boots and make sure no corrosion is present.
  4. Install the ignition coil housing to cam cover and attachment bolts.
  5. Tighten the ignition coil housing bolts to 89 inch. lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Connect the EI module harness connector. Push in until a click is heard and pull back to confirm a positive engagement.

The switch need to be replaced. This is a common problem. Understand that he switch is the only breakpoint in that system. If the seat is getting hot without the switch being pressed, there is a short in the switch, thuis the necessary replacement.

My Chevy 2,000 Mailbu will not start. Sometimes when I try to start it the trunk will pop open. Can you please help?!


Its time to replace the battery. This is common in Chevy cars, if the battery goes bad it doesn't hold a charge anymore. Whats happening in your case is the low voltage isn't keeping the trunk relay closed. When you turn the key all the juice goes to the stater and lets the truck pop open. Just to prove my point, give it a jump start and it will fire right up and the trunk will stay closed.

Hello. The electronic opener needs new battery. Change it and it will open. The dealer can get you a new key. Get the Vehicle Identification Number & Bill of sale or good proof it is your car and they will help you get a key.
