Question about 2006 Chevrolet Malibu
Most common cause for this is the fuse that powers the OBDII connector is also on the accessory or cigar lighter fuse circuit and loses power when that fuse blows

OBD stands for on board diagnostics.it could either be a connector problem or a computer problem.take it to your local parts store and have them hook up a tester for free.if the computer is dead take it back to the dealer it should still be under warranty.thanks for using fixya.

The OBDII / OBD2 connector is 18" from the center of the center console.
You will need to purchase an OBDII scanner/reader to read these codes.
The alternative method is get a OBD2 cable and a laptop + software to pull the codes.
An inexpensive OBD2/CAN bus reader around $75-$120 is a good start.
Did the inspector mention anything about drive cycle or lack of stored readyness fields?

You most likely have a blown Auxilliary Power Outlet fuse. (Happens all the time) The Auxilliary Power Outlet fuse also powers you Data Link Connector (DLC). If the DLC has no power, the computer scanner will not communicate with the engine computer.
Check Fuse #7 (25 Amp) in the instrument panel fuse block. (See diagram)
