2005 malibu, factory radio removal and keyless entry disabled'?
I have a 2005 chevy malibu and I would like to replace the radio with one that is compatible with my iphone. I am worried that my remote to unlock my car will no longer work after replacing the radio. Is this true? Will my remote not unlock my car anymore once the factory radio is removed?

You may have accidentally broke the controller. They are fragile. The newer cars like yours automatically set the alarm when the doors are locked from keychain remote, or locking manually. New remote, $50-100.
Unfortunately your 2009 Chevy Malibu key fob does not have any self programming procedures. You have to have a professional program this key fob to your vehicle. I do have a couple money saving tips for you:
this code is located on a module on inside left rear panel where your
car jack is located you will need a flashlight to look up on the module there will be a sticker on this module with 5 digits this will be the original factory code to lock or unlock your car . inside your owners manual there is a procedure to change the code .
atxhonda is right. Your going to have to replace the stereo and an aft mkt stereo will be the cheapest by far, however you should know that 96-00 Civics keyless entry control unit is inside the factory unit and by replacing it with an aftermarket deck you will lose you factory keyless entry system. If you don't have or use honda factory keyless entry or maybe you have an aft mkt keyless entry installed than I would go with the aft mkt deck.
Key fobs have to be reprogrammed. something has knocked the coding off. Search the web for procedures to program fobs. It usually entails operating ignition a series of power lock sequences and the like. If that does not work you can take it to the dealer and they can recode it using the data from you cars computer, but that is extremely expensive.
If you still have the factory radio, there is a way to split the power wire for the factory radio to the aftermarket radio. All you will need are the power and ground for your aftermarket radio, so the rest of the wires should be untouched on the plug for the factory radio. You can simply re-install the radio within the dash and retain the keyless entry as well as restoring your dome light function. Here's a PDF of some instructions. If you did not keep the radio, I would suggest looking online or ins ome junk yards, because it is needed. www.installdr.com/InstallDocs/Honda/PDF/466013.pdf
There are no wires you can touch to program key fob's , Dealer only ! Need a factory scan tool !
