SOURCE: radio in 05 Malibu Maxx LS

The reason the radio is staying on is the retained accessory power not shutting down when the driver's door is opened. You can verify this by opening the door with the key on, if the door ajar light on the instrument panel does not light up the switch in the door latch is defective. You will need to replace the door latch.

SOURCE: VOLVO S40 DOESNT START OCCASIONALLY

sounds like you need a new battery, it probably isnt running enought cranking amps to start your car, try a different battery and it should start fine

SOURCE: 2004 chevy malibu won't start up

I have an 04 Malibu and when I get hard starts when I'm in the car I just press the accelerator down about half way and it always starts right up, some times I have to hold the accelerator down a little after starting to stop it from stalling but it is rare.

Does it turn over? If not, try disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it. This has worked for my Jeep before.

2005 malibu I can't get the key to turn in the ignition switch. Is there something electrical that would be keeping the key from turning? Thanks


Not that I am aware of. The steering wheel can be holding the lock, you might try turning the wheel both directions while turning the key.
You might also try a spare key.

Does a 2000 chevy malibu have a fuel reset button and where? it just died while at a stop sign, so we thought it was out of gas. we put gas in and it still will not start.


Hello mellissa, the 2000 malibu does not have a fuel reset switch. Check the fuel pump relay in the fuse box under the hood. Check for fuel pressure. You should be able to hear the fuel pump come on for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position....Your fuel pump might have failed.
I hope this helps.

02 malibu won't start


If car won;t start, but turns over it may be the anti theft system. Follow the directions in the manual-turn the key on and leave it for ten minutes or until the anti theft light goes out. Turn the ignition OFF and then restart the engine. If you continue to have problems with the anti theft system, disconnect the battery for 4 or 5 minutes and then reconnect. It seems to reset the system. Found this out after a mech. had worked on the system, disconnected the battery and told me it would be 400 to 500 to replace the module. Said no thanks and drove off to never have the problem again (so far!) 10,000 mile since.
