Turn off car. Remove the fuse that goes along with the radio, it's under the dash on passenger side. Replace it and turn car back on.

Hello I am not sure if this is the exact fix but I was having the same problem and I took my Malibu in to be checked and it appears to be a problem inside the steering column. When I turn the steering wheel it makes the door locks go crazy!! So although this is not a fix it may be a place to look for a frayed wire or a short in the wires. I am taking my Malibu in on Monday to be checked. Good luck to all having the same problem.

i think it stands for traction control. most cars with that say ETC which stands for electronic traction control. if you have a manual for the car it should say what it is.

Door locks to side doors will not lock or unlock using either the key fob or door buttons. Back hatch will unlock using key fob


Check the fuse for the door locks first, then if nothing there look for a wiring diagram that shows the ground wire location and verify the ground is made. Also the driver side lock switch button could be the culprit

My doorlocks lock and unlock while driving and so im afraid its ging to engage the security feature to shut down fuel pump.i don't have a key fob.


Hi Jason:

We've had similar problems with our Aztek and Buick.
The problem was with the Body Control Module and was beyond my fixit skills.
The local GM dealer attended to it for a cost of approx $1,000 per vehicle.
Definite PITA
Hope you have better luck.

Door lock and unlock while driving ...


Some factory and aftermarket alarms lock the doors as you shift out of Park, or the car goes faster than 7-10 MPH, and unlock when shift to Park, or turn off ignition. If you have the option to cancel this option and lock the doors manually, then you know the signal input wire(s) have loose connection and are the culprits.

2006 malibu that locks and unlocks the doors while driving. Also the doors can be unlocked and when you open a door the alarm sounds.


You have a door lock/unlock switch problem or a door lock/unlock switch wiring problem.
Many mechanics fear working on doors, since its a wholly different world of tools and techniques
than engine work.
Once you get inside the door lock/unlock switch area (its almost always the driver's side, rather
than the passenger side), look for a worn wire or end of a spade lug near or touching a ground, and
automotive grounds are any part of the body or door - the door is not a good ground, but it does
end up being grounded through the hinge.

Doors automatically lock and unlock


It sounds like a keyless entry system. You may be sitting on an extra set of keys or if you have a keyless transmitter on your keychain that has loose batteries. Leave that keyless transmitter home and use you key to open the door. See if the problem goes away.

" Ghost Lock Problem"


Most likely a body control module problem or water leaking into a controller. Wiggle lock switches just to make sure one of them are not sticking. If it is a bad body control module, it probably has to be set up and programmed by a dealer.

Clunk sound when turning left in 2005 Chev Malibu


I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.
