Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
I have a 2001 Malibu that died while driving in town. I have verified that it has a good battery. Accessories and lights but will not crank. Any ideas?
Same thing happened in my 03 Malibu-called Triple A. Before she sent anyone out, she told me to put the car in Neutral and try to start it-sure enough-and I was good to go. Try it maybe it will work. On my own, another freak thing, it wouldn't crank, pushed up on gear shift to make sure it was in park-I heard something click and it started. Sometimes it's the simplest. good luck.

Check battery conection first. Both posts on the battery terminal must be free of any debris or acid build up. Clean with baking soda and water. If it is the original battery then there is a chance that it may be going bad. You would still have lights but just not enough juice to start your truck. If the battery is new then the next thing would be your starter. Go in that order, cheapest first.
