I believe the security system malfunction


The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Chevy malibu turn signals will flash really fast while driving but all bulbs are good


Replace the flasher relay. It is usually under the dash. Follow the clicking sound when the flasher is on. It just unplugs.

My 2002 chevy malibu's radio seems to be shorting out, the radio will work fine but randomly the sound shuts off the radio still shows the radio station and even says which artist is playing but there...


I'd suggest using the balance and fade controls to cut out each speaker one by one. to possibly determine if you have shorted speaker or speaker wiring. As far as the turn signal clicking noise, the hazard switch is the actual flasher unit for the turn signals, and could be the culprit, but the most likely cause is the turn signal switch itself. It is usually caused by corrosion across the contacts, which can be cleaned out fairly easily, but more typically, the switch is just replaced

Constant clicking sound coming from dashboards when you use the turn signals. After turn signal turns off, the clicking sound continues forever. It always sounds like the turn signal is on.


This is a common problem with this, the problem is a bad flasher unit, this is part of the hazard light switch, you will need to replace the hazard switch and this will solve the problem, this was a bad design by gm, i've replaced 30 of these for the same problem or the signals stopped working, this part was on back order at dealer, they might sell them aftermarket (autopart store) and bt now the dealer should stock it, heres a picture of it, hope this helps.johnjohn2.jpg

Constant clicking from flasher unit


The flasher unit has gone bad and needs to be changed. The flasher module is a part of the hazard module also. The clicking is the unit is still working but there is not enough voltage to activate the lights to flash. It's common on the Malibu's and other GM product cars similar to the Malibu like Grand Am's Ect. I believe Auto Zone has the replacement part for you car and is more reasonable in price then the dealer and the y also have the step by step instructions to replace the flasher module. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

I have this same problem. I was told that it's caused by a short in the hazard light switch. A temporary solution is to just turn the switch on, then off again, otherwise you may need to take it to a shop or dealer.

Turn signals sometimes don't work


Change the flasher to an electronic unit. They are far less likely to give you trouble.
