Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

My 2005 Malibu won't start. The battery died and when we tried to jump it the car almost started but then after that every time we would try to start it, it sounded like it wasn't getting gas. What could it be?

First: Check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail and check for spark at the plugs then repost with you results.

My 2005 malibu will turn but wont start.. after i got a boost it sarted than when i turned it off it did not come back on


If jump starting it didn't fry one of your relays. Then you might wanna check your coil, alternator and all the cables running from them and the battery

2005 Chevy Aveo, clicks but start won't catch and when jumped it doesn't charge what could it be??


Your alternator is not charging the Battery, I would replace the battery with a new gel battery and have the alternator checked, bets on your battery just died.

My 2003 chevy malibu cranks but wont start. battery is good and altenator is good


To clarify - - if the engine cranks the battery and starter are ok.
The alternator does not come into play until the engine is running.
If it cranks but won't start, you have to figure out if you are missing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
A mechanic would check that and if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

The car was running fine one day then the next day it would not start. We tried jumping it thinking the battery might be dead and it still would niot start. The car has power until we take the jumper...


Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

2005 dodge neon is having problems with jumping and dying and the engine light is on


The alternator is more than likely bad. If you jump start all the time and the car dies quickly it is the alternator, if you jump start all the time and it runs until shut off, but will not restart it is the battery.
