Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Car won't start, doesn't try.

First time it happened, I made the mistake of trying to start the car with all the doors locked, then I didn't lock and unlock it with the keyfob, which made it not start, but now re-doing these things correctly aren't working, and the car simply isn't starting, it doesn't try, the same way it doesn't try when the doors are locked, am I doing something else wrong? This really is such nonsense, what ever happened to just unlocking the door with the key, putting it in the ignition, turning it and starting the car? What's next? Twenty nine letter passwords?

    My two year-old was messing around in my 05 (no keys), and now I have the same problem. I was looking around everywhere to see if he might have pulled a wire, but I think what you describe might be the problem. He did have the doors locked when I pulled him out of there...

First problem started when the passenger door didn't open from outside. Now when you lock the car, the passenger door won't lock.


Sounds like the locking mechanism in the passenger door may need lubrication. You could also have a wiring issue and/or the actuator solenoid on that door could be bad. I'm assuming you are using the keyless locking fob. What happens when you push the door locking button on the driver's side door or the locking button on the passenger door itself? If these work as they should and with not hesitation then you likely have some other problem in the locking system.

Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,
