Question about 2006 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Car just stopped working in the middle of driving

My husband was driving and all of a sudden the car shut off, and he was not able to turn on the flashers. He was able to put the car in neutral and coast over to the side of the road. The car started again and he drove it for a couple of days with no problem. Now today it just won't start and none of the electronics work, such as the automatic locks, flashers, etc.

If you want to try to problem solve this first and save a little money, change your battery. This is an electrical problem and can be very costly - Some times changing the battery fixes the problem. It could be something as simple as your radio and it needs replace because it is draining too much juice from your battery. Other avenues to look at is your distributor, if it doesn't want to turn over than it is your starter.. When was the last tune up done on your vehicle? Another thing to consider is your fuel pump, that will make your car stall and not start again - It will act like an electrical problem. Much cheapier to do yourself than hiring a mechanic - Buy a Chilton if you need help with the replacement - Always remember that you put it in the same way you took it out.

2000 Saturn all of a sudden acts like the battery is dead but it is not

The battery could still need replacing. It just depends on how old it is. Some batteries last 3 years if you are lucky.

hi There
I have read your report. Yes your dad is right. Check the alternator. Because if it goes bad your car will loose power and it would be hard for your car if had lights radio a/c on. The relay in alternator dose go bad and sometimes you get a bad one also. Try this tip when you start your car take the positive cable off the battery and if it dies. Then it's your alternator. just remember that little trick. Hope this info helps. and thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard
