First turn the ignition key to the on position without trying to start the engine. You should hear the fuel pump running in the tank for 5 seconds each time you turn the key on. If not heard then check the fuel filter by loosening the line towards the engine. If fuel comes out of that reattach the filter to the line. If no fuel is seen replace the filter for its clogged up. Then check the fuel pump fuse, relay, & then the pump in that sequence. One of those items will be at fault.

04 malibu classicwont start has gas and turns over


Ive done my research on this issue because it happened to me.. this is a common issue with GM cars. I found a module and you can install it yourself. It will bypass the security and allow your car to start. its not just a quick fix, its permanent... hope this helps

My 2004 Malibu cut off driving down road and will not start back but it act like it want to start


Assuming there is gas in it, it's either a fuel issue or a electrical issue. Sometimes ignition electrical issues are heat sensitive, where it will die when hot, and then start back up when it's cold.

If it doesn't start cold, remove a spark plug and see if it is wet with gas. If it is dry, then chances are you have a fuel issue. It could be a frozen fuel line, clogged fuel filter, or a bad fuel pump.

Doing a search for "2004 malibu won't start electrical" gives me 728k hits. Searching on "2004 malibu won't start fuel", gives me 553k hits. Chances are it's electrical. Do a search on you tube for your model and year to get some more ideas of common repairs.

Looking on Edmunds it shows the car as pretty reliable except for an ignition problem with the lock cylinder.

Car Complaints also leads me to believe its electrical:

I have a 2004 chevy malibu classic. car ran out of gas and stopped. put gas in and tried too restart the car. car wont start but you can smell gas and wants too start but wont.


Hi, you may have it flooded. Try holding the accelerator all the way down while cranking the engine to clear the gas out. Let us know if this doesn't work, and thanks for using FixYa.

2004 chevy malibu 2.2 driving 60 mph shut down


either you have a fuel pump that went out, or your fuel pump relay went. These fuel pumps last around 100,000 miles, so if you're way under that, it's more than likely the relay, if you're close to that, it could be either.

This is the anti-theft PASSLOCK system. You can purchase a paslock 2 bypass system that will bypass the anti-theft othewise you will have to wait the 10 minutes with the key on the ON position and turn over immediately when anti-theft light turns off
