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.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy Impala won't start

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.

Is the emergency brake on a 2005 malibu maxx lt a disc or drum brake


The emergency brake is just a cable that runs to the rear brakes of the car to actuate the rear brakes, so what ever your rear brakes are.

Radio will not work until I reset it by pulling the fuse.


I bet updating the vehicle computer will provide no benefit
to a radio / stereo problem. If the stereo is a 2008 and there's
never been any service on it, there may be an internal memory
battery on the mainboard that has died. Higher function radios
have memory back-ups that retain user settings & instruction
sets. The fancier the features, the higher the likelihood. removing the fuse cuts ALL power to the stereo and forces
a re boot to the processor that runs all of it's functions.
leaving it fused but shut-off never turns it completely-off
and allows the system to get goofed up -
(without the back-up to retain things).
Just to find out will require removing the stereo from the car.
No dealership repairs stereos - search for DELCO car stereo
repairs shops to get an estimate, giving your symptoms.

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.

Radio in 05 Malibu Maxx LS


The reason the radio is staying on is the retained accessory power not shutting down when the driver's door is opened. You can verify this by opening the door with the key on, if the door ajar light on the instrument panel does not light up the switch in the door latch is defective. You will need to replace the door latch.
