Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
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
Key fobs have to be reprogrammed. something has knocked the coding off. Search the web for procedures to program fobs. It usually entails operating ignition a series of power lock sequences and the like. If that does not work you can take it to the dealer and they can recode it using the data from you cars computer, but that is extremely expensive.

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

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!

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.
