Hello, You have to have an OBD2 scan tool with "can" compatibility. Some independent shops may have an scanner set up to read codes for you. There is not any way with a key to read them.Please rate this answer thank you.

I don't believe there is any way to check the engine codes without the scan tool. There is no way to get an engine code to flash with the igniton key. You can try going to your local parts store, most of them will scan engine lights for no charge. Hope this helps.

I have a 2007 Chevy Malibu it wont crank but is reading a error on the dashboard but if I turn the key but the lights will come on and that about it


Hello Delissa,

The first thing to check is your battery. If you have dash lights that doesn't confirm your battery has enough of a charge to turn the engine over.

Is the dash light your SES (Service Engine Soon) light? If so...diagnostics can be accessed via a OBDII code reader and provide a starting point to trouble shoot any registered faults. (Some automotive parts stores offer free code retrieval.)

2007 Malibu error when turning key on no start


Your vehicle has a theft system installed. What has happened is the Computer has detected the wrong theft data from the ignition cylinder. Sometimes trying a different key will temporarily start the vehicle. The other option is try to start the car, when it sees the key failure, leave the key on for 10 minutes. Repeat the procedure 3 times for a total of 30 minutes. On the fourth attempt it should start. If those two options fail, you will have to take it to a repair shop the can dignose theft concerns.

Why my engine car shut off while I still driving


This is a common issue with this car, it's most likely a faulty ignition switch. It could be another electrical issue but I doubt it. Have it's codes checked and look for a security fault. The ignition in this model of car is horrible, just Google around and you'll see. It can be replaced at home but you will have to re-learn the ignition cylinder security, takes about 10-15 minutes for the procedure. The instructions on how to replace and re-learn are on the net, if you take it to a mechanic I wouldn't see them charging longer than a hour to fix it, it could probably be done in less than 30 minutes. I don't recommend using a used ignition switch from a junkyard, it is hit or miss on a good working one. If the security light isn't on or no codes were set I would do more diagnostics before making a purchase.

NEED 2007 CHEVY MALIBU RADIO CODE


I just got the code for my radio by calling 1-800-537-5140 and choosing the option for my vehicle make. 1 for chevrolet. then i entered 106010 for the customer # and then entered my serial # from the stereo and it gave me a lock code for free. Now i am just trying to figure out how to enter it since my manual tells me to take it to the dealership. Now that you have your 4 to 6 digit code, you can enter it by following the these steps. 1. Make sure your ignition is in the "on" position, but no started. 2. Press/Hold the "HR" button to set the first 2 or 3 numbers. 3. Press/Hold the "Min" button to set the next 2/3 numbers. 4. Press the AM/FM button one time. "SEC" should be displayed. You can now turn the radio on. Good luck!

Key doesnt want to turn it takes a few tries in my 1998 chevy malibu


Sounds like your ignition and key are getting worn. You can try getting a new key made,but not at the hardware store. Go to a locksmith and have one made from the key code. The one you get from the hardware store will be worn like your current key and not work any better. If that doesn,t make a difference, you will have to get the ignition changed. You will have to get the new tumbler and key from the dealer.
