Ignition coil and module failure on a 2005 Malibu Classic

I've had this coil replaced (3) times and now I've had to have the module replaced also. Is this normal for this to happen even with only 20,000 miles and several times afterward? Has there been any kind of re-call for this problem?

    I'd like to think that this is a manufacture problem that should be addressed by some responsible party instead of costing the consumer thousands of dollars. I'm in search of somebody to hold responsible for this defect. Any suggestions...anybody?

    I have a 2005 Malibu Classic and my car will not start after driving for about 13 miles to work.

    I have the same problem. I just took my car to the dealership because it locked down. The passlock sensor & cylinder cost me $1,100.00 to fix and 2 other codes came up, one was is the ignition control module, the mass air flow sensor and the 02 censor all of which are fairly inexpensive comparatively. I would like to know if there was a recall on some of these parts as well. The vehicle is a 2005. This kind of $$$$ should not have to be put into a just 4 year old car.

    with our experience the module failure is most likely a result of another failure , we like to change the crank position sensor and module as a unit . keeps the comeback from happening . for years if you only did the module , you could count on it coming back , sure a module made the car run again , but for how long this time , so we learned to do the pair and it worked . experience .

The hardest part is finding it. With your key on give a left or right turn signal. Try to listen and pinpoint the clicking of the turn signal flasher. Once you locate the turn signal flasher, your hazard flasher will look just like this and should be mounted nearby, typically next to it. The flasher simply pulls out and the new one just pushes in.

SOURCE: Where is the turn signal module on an 05 Malibu?

The modual is the trun signal it's self. Other than that it runs through the BCM and that distributs the power to the lamps.
Do the indiactors on the dash light up at all? Or do you just hear a clicking noise?

HI if a compression test on cyl 3 is fine ,the next step check coil pack if independent coil swop with a functioning cyl (eg 2 ) ,If this repairs the problem coil should be changed.Do check wires connecting to coil for continuity on power and ground supply.In some rare cases the above answers are over powered by a faulty ignition module .

Why does my ignition module keep going out on my 2005 Bonneville?


Frequent ignition module failure can be caused from an over-voltage condition from the voltage regulator. Check your charging voltage at the battery when the vehicle is running, and it should not be higher than 14.3VDC.

Also, improper jump-starting using a "booster" style jump-starter can cause an ignition module to fail. Did the failure occur after jump-starting? Try using a standard trickle-charger in the future instead of jump-starting your car from a booster, or simply use jumper cables attached to another vehicle or fully-charged battery.

Be sure that the voltage at the primary side of your ignition coil is no more than 6.5VDC. If it is, replace the ignition resistor.

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure


to beds_borders

That sounds very familiar. Our 2005 Ford Escape just had about the same problem to the tune of a $2800 repair. Computer failure caused two iginition coils to fail and had to drive over the Continenetal Divide on 4 cylinders. The vehicle is only 5 years old. Happened about 3 weeks ago. Ford said there is no recall. I have a big problem with that.. Where is the "quality" they are trying to sell?

2005 Chevy Malibu starting problem


Sounds to me like you should check your battery and connections to it. Maybe they are dirty or corroded- not allowing full amperage to start your car or recharge the battery fully.

Just a relatively easy check and usually a no- cost fix!!!
Hope this helps you out!!

2005 Chevy Malibu starting problem


sounds like its a gas problem. i would normally say its the pump but if you replaced it already then its not likely. i would look and see if there is anything in the tank clogging the pump. something may have got sucked up in there while you are turning.
