You must get the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, this is the first thing that must be done before any diagnostics can be done to find the problem that has put the engine in "LIMP" mode.

Check engine light came on then reduce engine power


When this light comes on it means the computer control module has detected a fault in the system, it has reduced power to avoid any damage to the engine or transmission. You must now have the computer scanned for fault codes, this is done through the diagnostic connector under the dash see photo below.

2004 malibu keeps dying while driving and will not start. Once all of the gauges went to zero and said check power steering and then died and another time it said Check gas cap and died. The first time it...


will try to help. if your engine isn't getting a full 12 volt charge to your battery it will do crazy stuff,like the guages rolling all the way around and different lights will come on. i suggest you have the battery checked,also check your altenator. if you're near an autozone or advance auto parts store, they will check both altenator and battery for free.after your car dies, you let it sit for say,2hours and then it starts, battteries will sometimes build their charge up own their own, but usually only enough to drive for very short distances. that should explain your next question,why does it restart after it sits for awhile? hope this helps and as always thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 2005 chevy malibu, and one morning it just wouldn't start, the car never showed signs of anything wrong, and when I turn the key it just make a beeping noise.


I have a Chev 2004 Malibu and so does my cousin.. This is a problem that A LOT of these cars have, but Chevy does not see this as a SAFTY issue... so they will not fix it. This problem will continue to happen to you.. there is NO way to fix it or by pass it. Basically your ingition is not recognizing your key, and this is Chevy's crappy way of keeping your car from being stolen. You will notice when your car doesn't start, your THEFT SYSTEM light is BLINKING... What you need to do is, when this happens to you, leave your key in the ignition, and turn it to ACC. Leave it there for approximately 10 minutes, until the THEFT SYSTEM light is SOLID, not BLINKING anymore. Turn your car off, and then turn it back on. Your car should start right up. I had this happen to me EVERY SINGLE TIME I got in my car for 2 weeks! Then it stopped and I thought it wouldn't do it anymore. But just as you need to be somewhere and you are running late.. THE CAR KNOWS!!! And it will do it to you again! Good luck!

Sounds like a start of a fuel pump. You would have to hook up a gauge to tell more. There is a specific fuel pressure specification for your vehicle.You should find out what code is in the computer.That is always a good starting place

Battery dies, its too cold


it may not be the battery you ralternator may not be charging your battery enough to deal with the cold weather drive it to a auto parts store and they can check them both in the car for you and tell you what is wrong as for your brakes it is probably time to change them and/or the rotors
