Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
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.

First things first. Do you have a volt meter to check the battery voltage? What engine do you have?
Let me know.

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
