My 2008 chev malibu wont start the battery is new, all the electric syst works( radio, windows, dash), but eont crank at all, the uel pump sounds like its working, all the fuses are tested and relays too,...


Could be the neutral safety switch or the key switch, or the starter.
You might try cranking it in neutral instead of park.
The starter circuit would need to be tested from the starter back to the key switch if it has no voltage with the key in the start position.

2001 Chev Malibu. Turn key on to start car, won't start. No warning lights on no lights on gauge panel. Radio works, dome light work.


check the ground leg to your engine.. it runs off the neg. battery terminal. will connect to frame and engine.. pull it off, wire brush it put it back.. you radio will work, 'cause it draws much less current, and is grounded in dash.

Did you Take the radio out of the car. Sounds like you pulled the theft wire apart that goes to the
ignition switch. If this happens the starter and the fuel are disabled preventing the car from starting.
If everything looks ok I suggest calling a radio tech guy or pull the radio out to take in for repair.
I know these radio's are sensitve and have theft lock in them also.

it resets the anti theft system, so vehicle will start. all gm vehicles from 97-2005, contain a anti theft system called a passlock system. go to tubesound.com to disable passlock for good. (just type in your problem when page comes up).
