Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu

The remote won't open the trunk of my 2004 Malibu

The remote won't open the trunk of my 2004 chevrolet malibu. I can open it with the key. The garage wants $350.00 to repair this. Is there a way to do it cheaper? I already know it's not the fuse.
Thanks in advance

SOURCE: Change headlamp on a 1999 chevrolet malibu

The headlamp assembly on each side comes out as a unit. Raise the hood. Remove black plastic cover that hides the assembly. This is done by prying up on the plastic tabs on the cover that hold them in place. (They look like inserts) Once you pull up on the center portion of tab, the whole fastener comes out. Once the cover is out of the way, you will see these square black (about an inch Sq.) horizonal plates of which are connected to ball like fixtures (ball and socket) you pull up on the plates which release the ball to come out of the socket. The headlight assembly will swing out at the top, then raise straight up once it clears top. The headlight bulbs will now be accessible. Turn light bulb socket (with the wiring) counterclockwise 1/4 turn to remove. replace bulb. wipe clean with paper towel or cloth before reinstalling, as acid from skin or other contaminates will destroy bulbs. reinstall in reverse.

SOURCE: Chevy Malibu Trunk Problem

Sounds like your automatic trunk release is binding or stalled and needs to be replaced. Check the owners manual to see where the fuse is for the trunk release and verify that the fuse is ok. Sometimes if you press down on the trunk, it is easier to open the release manually. I don't have a Malibu but the rear hatch release in my SUV and in many of my friends vehicles has acted up in this manner.

Hello. The electronic opener needs new battery. Change it and it will open. The dealer can get you a new key. Get the Vehicle Identification Number & Bill of sale or good proof it is your car and they will help you get a key.

Trunk will not open with the door OR remote buttons. I can it hear it "clicking" but it is not releasing the trunk lid. I do not have a key for the trunk. What could the problem be?


sounds like it could be the latch mechanism is seized(rare but does happen) and you could try forcing the trunk lid open while using the remote button at the same time and it may pop open,other wise the release motor is not working properly(motor making noise but not moving),you should get a trunk key made just for this type of reason(any thing electrical or electronic will fail).otherwise you will have to access to the trunk some how to repair the problem.

Hatch won't open on 2004 Malibu Maxx


Try pushing the trunk release and turning the key in the lock at the same time.
It sounds like the electric lock has not released for what ever reason.
You should hear the trunk release relay when you push the remote.
