2001 chevy malibu radio problem

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu that I just got and its good but when i turn the key to the just power spot the radio turns on, but when i turn the key and start it the power to the radio is cut off, and then when i shut the engine off and on just the power the radio is back on. why would this happen, and would it be easy to fix or would it pretty much require a mechanic?

    its completely stock, everything in the car. I would prefer not having to take it to the shop if possible, as it seems like it might be an easy fix, but im not that mechanically savvy (still learning heh) so i dont know.

2009 Chevy malibu radio is not working doesn't power on. The blinkers does not sound when in either . Could it be a fuse? Where is the fuse for this ?


Probably. Check the owners manual. On some models there are TWO fuses connected with the radio. One powers up the radio when you turn the key on, the other is on all the time to keep the clock, preset stations, etc. stored. Owners manual should tell you where they are located...
Good Luck

How do set the clock on my 1998 chevy Malibu radio?


If the radio has a set button: Turn key on and radio off. Press the set button and use the right seek button to set the minute and left seek to set the hours. If it has no set button: find the hour and minutes buttons or holes under the auto tone knob. Turn key on engine off and radio off. press the left button for the hour and right button for minute.

01 chevy malibu won't start, security light blinks but after leaving the switch in the on position for ten minutes it will start is there a permanent solution to this?


I have the same problem on my 2001 malibu. Do a google search for 2001 Malibu Passlock malfunction. You have to have the passlock system replaced, although I've seen many forums where people have had it replaced only to have it malfunction again because Chevy never made a new passlock that does not malfunction for older Malibus. Also, if you get a remote car starter I've heard this will disable the passlock therefore removing the issue of it malfunctioning so you would not have to worry about it not starting.

Does 2001 chevy malibu have a fuel pump fuse


I am not sure if it has a fuse but your owners manual will say. I know it has a relay. If your not getting any fuel a good bet is to check your fuel filter and check to see if the fuel pump turns on for a second when you first turn the key on. Your pump may be bad. I have a 2001 malibu and have had 3 pumps in it since new.
