Question about Cars & Trucks
We have to start the vehicle with a screwdriver to the starter even though it has a new starter its not giving up any codes and can't figure out what's wrong can anyone help please thank you!?
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.

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
