Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

2004 Chevy Classic. I have never had a problem like this before. I drove my car in the morning, but when I got off work, my key would not turn. My ignition is locked, but my steering wheel is not. I have turned the wheel and it does not lock. What can I do?

IF YOU HAVE AIRBAGS IN UR STEERING WHEEL, UR GONNA HAVE TO TAKE IT TO UR DEALER FOR SAFETY SAKE. AIRBAGS USE A SMALL EXPLOSIVE TO MAKE THEM DEPLOY. IF THE STEERING WHEEL DOESN'T HAVE AIRBAG, UR IN LUCK. REMOVE STEERING WHEEL WITH A PULLER. THERE SHOULD BE SOMETHING RESEMBLING A "STAR" WHEEL. THERE IS A DETENT THAT GOES INTO ONE OF THE "STAR" LOBES. MAYBE THE DETENT IS STUCK AND A LITTLE LUBE WILL FREE IT UP. OR MAYBE YOU WILL NEED TO LINE UP THE "STAR" WITH THE DETENT.

Do a 2004 Chevy classic have a fuel pump access panel


no,your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.

Drove car, the next morning car dont turn over but all lights and horn is working,seems like it wants too but dont start never had a problem before the check engine light came on about a week before/2004...


try turning off all accessories in the car (radio, ac/heater etc.) then turn the key on for twenty (20) minutes so the computer resets itself. I had a similar problem, and still do from time to time, and I just reset the computer. turn on the key and let it set for 20 minutes then try it again. I hope this helps...
