Hi there,
I suppose its a sports mode function where the + enables you to upshift and the - to downshift.
Try using this mode when you are driving as you might like it if you used to drive manual cars before...
Cheers

How does one check transmission oil in 2005 chevy malibu maxx


You don't yourself. The lube change shop or garage can do this (requires special tools or removal of the pan). for a 2005 you're likely in need of a flush. some models can have a dipstick installed, but its not necessary. Unless you have a serious leak of fluid or shifting issues, it's rare to lose fluid. If you are having issues, then start with a flush and inspection BY A REPUTABLE GARAGE. do not use a dealer or transmission shop, they will always find ways to seprate you from your $$$

I have a 05 malibu maxx and when i nput it in low the button to shift it into the other lower gears won't work


Dealing with same issue, also when in main automatic mode, intermittenly seems to "get lost" while coasting and then reaccelerating. What I've found out so far it seems the data cable to the transmission is the problem, thin wires, tight fit and break in wire causes effect. Working on sourcing a new cable. Dealer thought transmission module (500.00 usd). Going cable route first due to cost and common sense.
