DTC P1610 Lost Communications with Body Multiple Control (BCM) System
Circuit Description
The PCM uses the serial data circuit to communicate with various other devices and systems in the vehicle. The PCM ensures that communication remains established by monitoring the serial data circuit for state of health messages from the other devices using the circuit. If the PCM detects a loss of the state of health serial data message from the Body Function Controller (BFC), DTC P1610 will be set.

SOURCE: Chaning right wheel bearing on 1999 Chevy Malibu

It is much easier, and cheaper to find a steering knuckle or "hub assembly" in a salvage yard.
To begin, jack up the car and remove the wheel. Be certain the car is stable and will not roll off jack(s)!
Remove the spindle nut. Remove the brake caliper (hang on a wire). Remove the bolt for lower ball join. Remove the bolt that goes thru strut. Now, pull assembly off while prying to ease pressure from the lower control arm.
Depending on how many miles you have on the car, you might want to head-off some future trouble by replacing the half-axle while you have the front end disassembled.

That engine does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain and therefore much easier to work with as it can only go on a certain way, the primary focus being getting the dots on the timing chain sprockets lined up properly.

I believe, with the engine at Top Dead Center on cylinder #1, the dots will be facing each other. That is to say, the do on the cam sprocket will be facing the dot on the crank sprocket.

SOURCE: How to change a heater core in a 1999 Chevy Malibu?

Before starting this job I would get a repair manual. This is not a easy job, 6+ hours for an experienced tech with all of the right tools. And you may have to discharge and recharge the AC system.

SOURCE: how to replace headlight bulbs 1999 chevy malibu

Thanks Pierre!

Merci beaucoup!

Everything worked as mentionned. Be carefull with the plastic in the winter. Make sure to use a flat screw driver and get it close to the slider and not on the edge. I cracked one of the tongues. Those L shaped slots are under the plastic cover with the two big plastic plugs that you also remove with the flat screw driver

Hi there, I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu 3.5L engine with an error code B3948. Does anyone know how to resolve this? Thanks!


See if the signal flashes, buy a new bulb. Some Chevy no longer use a flasher relay, the signal comes from the body computer.

1999 chevy malibu LS


If the check engine light is on, I would take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It sounds like it could be a faulty idle air control valve, but getting the codes should end speculation and identify the faults that the computer has noted. Hope this helped and best wishes.

You had a code. You cleared it, now the car hasn't ran the diagnostic to see if the problem is still there.
Most likly you had an EVAP code, from a loose gas cap, and you have fix the problem unknowingly
