    No I have not. Wouldn't it at least try to turn it over it was a problem with the starter? It does nothing at all when it does not start.

This car has a switch on the steering wheel post that hooks to the key by a linkage. It sounds like that switch is going bad. My daughter had one that went out gradually and it took a while to figure it out. It is much cheaper than a starter!

When the weather is very cold (below zero) the car will not even try to turn over it wil only click at the starter and ignition no turn battery is fine never does this any other time. only cold, but once...


It is normal for batteries to lose a good deal of their power due to cold temperatures. If you want better starting power, try using a battery charger/maintainer overnight. It should charge at no more than 2 amps. The slow trickle charging overnight will charge and warm up the battery and allow it to develop full power for a cold morning start.

Chevy malibu won't crank dashboard functions no theft system issue, turn to on position and makes no sound...could this be the starter?


Most definitely sounds like a starter. Try toggling the key to the start position several times a second until the starter operates. I do this to my 1997 Cadillac Deville occasionally as the weather changes without changing the starter (which probably should be done).

I also have a 1990 Cadillac Deville that does this occasionally.

Must be a GM thing.lol.
