Chevy malibu keyless entry malfunction

2005 Malibu keyless entry malfunction. Both units fail to unlock or lock doors or trunk--batteries removed and replaced. Failed, then worked ok, then failed permanently. Disconnected car battery, reconnected, then turned ignition on and off three times. Still doesn't work. All locks operate manually and from switches inside door, just keyless devices don't work. How to fix it? Jonahmel

SOURCE: programing keyless entry

If you have an owners manual the programming instructions are in there. If no manual here they are:

1. Turn the ignition off.
2. Ground the receiver program terminal. Jump the two terminals located in the programing ground connector. (What this means in simple terms is locate the wires that run on the right side of the trunk. There is two black wires that has a plug on the end with two prongs. It is in between the antenna and tail lights.)
3. Within 2 seconds of connecting the prongs the door locks will lock. The unlock and the rear compartment lid release will produce a cycle, causing the horn to chirp. This indicates that the module is ready for reprogramming.
4. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons at the same time until the doors lock and unlock. The rear compartment lid will release and the horn sounds to indicate that the transmitter has successfully been reprogrammed. (Hold buttons down for approximately 12 seconds)
5. Repeat the previous step for the remaining transmitters.
6. Remove the jumper at the program connector.
7. Verify the proper operation of each transmitter

SOURCE: Horn alarm randomly beeps

Make sure to check all doors, the trunk latch, and the hood to ensure that they are shut. I have looked up your 2006 Chevy Malibu and there has been a lot of people complaining about the alarm system and it going off. There is a TBS (Technical Service Bulletin) out for your car. The TBS says that the Faulty Door Sensor. Take it to your local dealership and tell him what I found for you and they should get you a quote on how much it would cost to repair it.

Thank you for using Fix Ya!
Good Luck!

SOURCE: 04 Malibu power locks up and down all the time, even w/key off.

The remote control door lock reciever controls the door locks, and tire pressure monitor. If your TPM and remote work normaly then it will not be the RCDLR. The body mudule is involved but I don't see this problem being related to it. About a week ago I had a car like yours with a small short in a door causing this exact issue. You need to get it scaned for body codes to give you a better idea where to go. Let me know if you need moer help. I have looked on the GM service web site and there are no known issues related to this. Good Luck.

NEED TO REEPROGRAMING A REMOTE CONTROL FOR A MALIBU 1998 HOW '?


1. Make sure ignition is in the OFF position.
2. Locate the Programming Connector in the trunk (center of rear shelf). It is a plastic connector with
two wires leading up to it. The connector is not plugged into anything. You may have to pull back
trim to access the connector.

3. The programming connector should have two terminals. Connect both terminals with a suitable
jumper wire. The Keyless Entry Module will lock then unlock all the door lock motors once. Make
sure the terminals remain connected throughout the programming procedure.

4. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for at least 15
seconds or until the vehicle automatically locks and unlocks the door locks. Your new remote has
been accepted and all existing remote codes have been erased.

5. Repeat the previous step for each transmitter to be programmed. Do not remove jumper wire in
between programming of transmitters.

6. Remove the jumper wire from the Keyless Programming Connector.

Doors automatically lock and unlock


It sounds like a keyless entry system. You may be sitting on an extra set of keys or if you have a keyless transmitter on your keychain that has loose batteries. Leave that keyless transmitter home and use you key to open the door. See if the problem goes away.
