Wouldn't expect ant codes with this issue. If you have a volt meter check for 12v on the small terminal of the solenoid. 12V should appear when the key is turned to the start position. If 12V dose not appear when key is turned to start your switch circuit has a problem. If you have no volt meter you can do this test by turning the key to the run position. Then tap the small terminal of the solenoid with a wire that is connected to 12Vs. This can be from battery or the hot terminal on the solenoid. If the starter dose not engage the solenoid part of the starter is not working. You got a bad starter take it back for a replacement. If the starter engages your switch circuit has a problem. & good luck with that.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy malibu won't start up

I have an 04 Malibu and when I get hard starts when I'm in the car I just press the accelerator down about half way and it always starts right up, some times I have to hold the accelerator down a little after starting to stop it from stalling but it is rare.

SOURCE: Factory remote start on 2004 Malibu Maxx stopped working

Fixed!!! I had several problems with my wife's remote start/lock/unlock/trunk/ panic. First it stopped working, i replaced the battery to find out that the battery holder inside the remote had broken solder at two points. Went to Harbor Freight bought a solder gun for $5 and solder wire for about $2. Once home i soldered the points back together (first time i've ever soldered anything). Put the new battery in and it didn't work. I pulled the whole thing apart and took the circuit board and touched the contacts where the button would have pushed at with a piece of metal. They locked and unlocked the car. So i knew at that point that the rubber thing was jacked. i got some tin foil and 5minute epoxy. Then i clued little tiny squares on the little black Nipples where they would contact the circuit board. Waited 6 minutes and put back together. Found out that if you start the car twice with out puting the key in the ignition you can't use the remote start. After putting the key in the ignition and starting it you reset the system and can remote start again. Dealer wanted 114 for the key remote and 54 to reprogram the remote to the car. I fixed my factory remote for under $20. Hope this helps someone

My 2004 chevy malibu classic won't start in weather colder than 50 degrees?


Somewhere along the electronic side you have a faulty component thats failing when the temperature drops ,what it is and where it is i have no idea at all it could be in the computer ,in a module somewhere and as iam a europeon mechanic whos never seen this model before i just cannot tell you were to look first .The fault though iam familiar with as had this on more than one occasion and older cars it was the ignition module but this is incorperated into the ECU on more modern motors .

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).

Power sttering loss


its possible this is electric, if you have an owners manual that will tell you, or call your local chevy dealership parts department, give them the vehicle identification number and they can answer it.
if its electric, most likely the fuse blew.

Reprogramming a spare with only 1 original - 2004 Chevy Malibu


the ignition keys are not coded. no "chip" in them you should be able to just have a spare key cut and it will work fine. These use an electronic device in key cylinder that senses the proper rotation of cylinder and tumblers. so if someone tries to pry on with a screwdriver it will disable starter. when this is replaced it has to be reprogrammed
