Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

Swapping out a Stock CD/Radio in a 2005 Chev Malibu Maxx

I am just trying to figure out how to get at the Radio. I know once I get the
big dash face plate off it will be a cake walk from there.

To get the center console you need to take a lot of the interior dash off. It sounds bad, but there are no real important parts to worry about damaging. Start by removing the silver trim that is just above the glove box. It just pulls off, being attached by pressure clips. Start at one end and work your way over. Next remove the glove box, it is held on by a couple of screws. Open the passenger door and begin removing screws. This exposes a screw holding the center console panel on. The procedure for the driver side is similar to that on the passenger side. After the two screws holding on the center console are removed you can pull off the panel. It is held on by pressure clips. The Driver information center and climate control are held on by a couple of screws. The unit is now readily removable, and much to my surprise there is a good deal of room behind the radio. You can short cut some of the steps at your option, you will have to pull back some the panels to reveal the center console screws, but you risk cracking the other panels in the process.

2007 malibu maxx will not start after I pulled a jammed cd out of the player. the engine would not turn over and the anti theft light began flashing and cd player clicking. I disconnected and reconnected...


Did you Take the radio out of the car. Sounds like you pulled the theft wire apart that goes to the
ignition switch. If this happens the starter and the fuel are disabled preventing the car from starting.
If everything looks ok I suggest calling a radio tech guy or pull the radio out to take in for repair.
I know these radio's are sensitve and have theft lock in them also.

Clunk sound when turning left in 2005 Chev Malibu


I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.

Cd stock


You might wanna try taking the radio fuse out for a few seconds and then putting it back in. Sometimes that helps the radio reset itself and will begin working as it should. If that doesn't work, try disconnecting the battery also for a few seconds, and if still that doesn't work, then you might have to take the whole thing out (radio) and open it to try to take the CD out manually. After that, if the problem persists, just replace the whole thing. Hope that only taking the fuse out for a while will solve you problem.

2004 MALIBU CD CHANGER/ STUCK CD


My CD player did the same thing on my 2005 Chevy Malibu MAXX LS.  I know it sounds weird, but disconnect the car battery from the car (resetting the whole car system), and then reconnect.  I pressed the eject button on the console, and it ejected my CD with no problem.
