Plenty. Dry all the controllers and scan system. If a controller cannot be accesse check all connections for dirt. Remove and reconnect all connecotrs. Re scan and you will be surprised.

well it could be as simple as just replacing the fuel pump relay. it's located in the junction box under the hood. if the relay is good then check the fuel cutoff switch. that is located behinfd the fabric in the trunk along the wheel wells. if this was not triggered then it could be that you might have a glitch in the ecm water is not kind to computers especially cars that have the ecm's in the engine compartments

SOURCE: drivers footwell full of water ( not flood damage )

check the drain tube outlet on the bottom of the car, that drains the AC. It could have become plugged. If that fails to clear up the problem, then you'll have to check the heater core... But you would be smelling coolant.

SOURCE: smell of oil in car when heater is turned on

The oil smell may be trapped in the car's cabin air filter.  Locate it and replace it.  Then on a dry day, spray A/C deoderizer (Fridge Fresh) in the cowl area with the heater blowing on high and all four windows open. Repeat a few times in an hour or so, then let it air out well.

SOURCE: P0336 Code

The code P0336 is crank shaft sensor performance code.The sensor could be faulty and not picking up a good signal.The after erasing the code,the problem still exists ,so it is then a pending code and when you shut the car off and restart it the code reappears.Just another idea here ,if you have not had a tune-up recently(plugs,wires,airfilter,etc.)you could get unwanted codes and your engine will not perform as it should.This could cause poor gas mileage as well.John.

1997 chevy malibu anti theft system how do I fix this problem The car won't start I believe the car is in the anti theft mode


The late-90's GM Passlock system (e.g. 1997 Malibu, Regal, Impala, etc.) has a part around the ignition tumbler that goes bad and no longer reliably detects the valid key. In that situation, the "Theft System" light will slowly flash and the carburetor is cut off so the engine won't start. The time-out on the system is 10 minutes - you don't have to do anything, you don't have to disconnect the battery, the key can be out of the ignition -- it's just a time delay. After 10 minutes, the light goes out and you can try again (but if the key is again not detected, the light will start flashing again and you have to wait another 10 minutes)
Someone else, who had this problem, told me to remove all other keys from my keyring. The weight of the other keys pulls on the ignition key causing the key to be unreadable. It has been 7 weeks since I have been doing this and have not had a problem

Hi Andrew, TC I believe is 'traction control'. I don't know for sure why the management system would read 'engine power reduced' and would suggest a visit to your dealer, to have a diagnostic scan carried out. It could very well be that moisture has contaminated the electronics.Regards Johngee10

I have a 2005 malibu that has been in & quickly pulled out of water during a major storm in oklahoma city awhile back when rain flooded the streets. since then i have replaced the motor etc...but my...


As an auto electric expert a vehicle that has been submerged in water is usually wrote off by the insurance company and no dealer or elec shop can or will guarantee or warrant the work afterwards. If it is only the brake lights that your noticing a problem with you would need to have that entire wiring harness replaced to ensure that the short will not reoccur. Here's a bit of knowledge most people don't know about wiring, each wire has it's own resistance or current capacities once those wires have been wet or have retained moisture when you energize that particular circuit or wire it can alter it (as we all know water is an electric conductor) and cause a surge that can or will destroy the component or whatever it is intended to power. Speak with someone at a reputable auto electric shop and they can tell you the pros and cons of what I mentioned.

If it's a US car then there is not an egr on the 2.2L engine. I think some of the mexican and oversea's engines had them, but not here in the US.
