Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

2005 Malibu MAXX car stereo dead, rear radio too.

Nothing really happened, when I started car at the morning radio didn't power on. Also back radio (for rear passengers) offline too. Everything else works well (light, air, dashboard, AUX powers, signals.....)

One thing: last night I accidentally triggered alarm by pulling badly closed trunk door... may it cause radio to lock? die?

Fuse seems to be ok. (I hope I checked right one)

Please check your owners manual for the location of the 10 amp fuse for the radio. On some models you have to reset the security feature on the radio/CD player for it to work.

The info below has been stated to work on a no go radio. I have not confirmed this procedure.

Remove the lower fuse box cover, with the power off, removed the 10 Amp fuse for the "Radio." the fuse may be good. Fuses are diagrammed in the owner's manual. With the fuse removed, start the car, turn the car off, replace the fuse and turn the key to "ACC" to see if the radio was "Reset."

Would the alarm cause the radio to malfunction? If your Anti Theft lock was activated check your owners manual under radio and check for a 4 number password. Sometimes it is taped to the upper part of the glove box. If you do not have the CODE you will need to take the vehicle to a dealership or a repair center. They use your vehicles vin number get the code.

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

look at the check valve/one-way vacuum valve (located behind the rear left paneling). chances are that the valve is broken and leaking. remove the valve from the hose and replace it.

The trunk trim would be plastic inside of car. Anything you can do to expose the inside access to the taillamp assembly. Carpet ,plastic trim, Ect...Once you have removed the Plastic wing nuts , the lamp assembly should pull out from the outside. Once the lamp is out ,make sure all lights are working. To replace ,they should twist about a quarter of a turn, and pull off. Then the bulbs will be there. Make sure the lights have the same numbers as the old ones. Let me know if that helps

Ford Sync not functioning


I've had the SYNC stop working twice for no reason. The first time, after checking fuses and such and not finding a problem, I just disconnected the battery cable for 10 minutes, then reconnected and everything worked again. Went straight to that the second time it happened and was back in action straight away.

04 grand cherokee limited. Started at home fine. Got to gas station and filled up, went to re-start and it clicked once with no restart. Power is fine(lights, radio, power windows, horn) everything works....


You might want to check the starter if you can try tapping it hard with something then try to start it again if it starts then all you need to do is have it changed out if nothing happens then you might also want to check and see if there is a broken fuse link going to the starter I know some vehicles have a fusible link in line with the starter it acts as a fuse but looks like a wire it will burn in half interrupting the voltage to the starter and like you stated everything else will work lights radio horn but the starter will not turn over hope this helps you.

I have 1998 Chevy Silverado with over 200,000 miles. One morning I started it up just fine, backed out of the drive way, and it just died. I turned the ignition to off, and turned it back on and parked it....


Check your battery terminals. They may be corroded or just loose. If you get it running again have the battery and charger tested at an Advance or Autozone.

Hope this helps.

Run the Vue with the heat runed all the way up, and the vents on, for about 30 minutes. this usually unfreezes the door for me.
