Sorry to say I have nothing for you
We use the site as you do
Anyone can ask or answer question,like there
is no one home here,just a chat room
My question is- does your car have a door module
If so you may have to look up the procedure to recognize
the new parts
That would be a good question for a repair shop
Your just asking,not paying anyone & they can look
in their data base,if they want to,to help answer your
questions
Without service manuals & wiring diagrams, if you work
on your own stuff, your in a bad place
Todays vehicles require system knowledge BEFORE
you approach the car, to do anything,have to know what
is there, so you come up with a strategy for the electrical
side later, after the mechanical repair,have to know first
before you work on a car these days or thing gone from maybe
to not working

Turn off car. Remove the fuse that goes along with the radio, it's under the dash on passenger side. Replace it and turn car back on.

i think it stands for traction control. most cars with that say ETC which stands for electronic traction control. if you have a manual for the car it should say what it is.

SOURCE: 2008 chevrolet malibu door lock problem

You have a intermittent condition. To isolate the cause: 1.Disconnect the drivers door lock/unlock switch from the connector. Drive the vehicle and see if your random lock/unlock condition has stopped. If it has, replace the switch. If it hasn't:
2. You have a grounding problem or a problem in the BCM (Body Control Module) and should have a technician use a Tech 2 Diagnostic Link Tool to access the BCM computer to obtain any fault code data to help correct the condition.

A lot of today's cars have seat backs that fold down to allow access to the trunk. I guess you would of already tried that. Just a thought. The only other thing I can think of, besides calling a locksmith, is to see if there is a blown fuse for the remote opener.

Backup Lamps
The R-BEC 1 fuse in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the BACKUP LAMP relay through the BACKUP LAMP fuse. When the gear selector is placed in reverse, the body control module (BCM) supplies ground to the BACKUP LAMP relay. This energizes the BACKUP LAMP relay and current flows from the BACKUP LAMP relay to the backup lamps and then to ground. The backup lamps are grounded at G401 and G403.

The transmission range (TR) switch is part of the park/neutral position (PNP) and back-up lamp switch assembly (1), which is externally mounted on the transmission manual shaft. The TR switch contains four internal switches that indicate the transmission gear range selector lever position. The PCM supplies ignition voltage to each switch circuit. By grounding one or more of the switch circuits, the PCM detects the selected gear range by the state change of the switch input. Refer to Transmission Range Switch Logic . Switch input to the PCM is represented on the scan tool as HI and LOW. HI indicates an ignition voltage signal. LOW indicates a zero voltage signal. The four parameters represent transmission range switch signal A,B,C and Parity.

When the transmission is placed into reverse a input to the engine computer is received . The PCM - engine computer sends a massage on the C.A.N serial data network to the BCM - body control module . Which then energizes the back up lamps relay .

Same with the Door locks , controlled by the BCM .

Door Lock System Components
The Power Door Lock System consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Driver door lock switch
• Front passenger door lock switch
• Door lock actuators in each of the doors
• IBCM (PWR) 15-amp fuse
Door Lock System Controls
The Power Door Lock System is controlled by the body control module (BCM) and can be activated by any one of the following:
• A door lock switch Lock or Unlock actuation
• A keyless entry transmitter actuation
• An automatic door lock actuation
• An automatic door unlock actuation
• A last door closed locking (LDCL) actuation

A/C only works on 3,4 . we assume you mean the blower motor only works on med speed an high speed . This would be for the heat as well . Manual or automatic cilmate control ? The blower motor control module is probably at fault !

Door locks to side doors will not lock or unlock using either the key fob or door buttons. Back hatch will unlock using key fob


Check the fuse for the door locks first, then if nothing there look for a wiring diagram that shows the ground wire location and verify the ground is made. Also the driver side lock switch button could be the culprit

You have to go to a Chevy dealer. They have a hand-held computer they plug into your car to get it into programming mode. Probably cost $50-$60. Call them for an estimate.

2006 malibu that locks and unlocks the doors while driving. Also the doors can be unlocked and when you open a door the alarm sounds.


You have a door lock/unlock switch problem or a door lock/unlock switch wiring problem.
Many mechanics fear working on doors, since its a wholly different world of tools and techniques
than engine work.
Once you get inside the door lock/unlock switch area (its almost always the driver's side, rather
than the passenger side), look for a worn wire or end of a spade lug near or touching a ground, and
automotive grounds are any part of the body or door - the door is not a good ground, but it does
end up being grounded through the hinge.

2005 Chevy Malibu Maxx - Electrical Problems?


Hello I am not sure if this is the exact fix but I was having the same problem and I took my Malibu in to be checked and it appears to be a problem inside the steering column. When I turn the steering wheel it makes the door locks go crazy!! So although this is not a fix it may be a place to look for a frayed wire or a short in the wires. I am taking my Malibu in on Monday to be checked. Good luck to all having the same problem.
