Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
Often brake lights and signal lights not working indicates a loose grounding of the rear electrical assembly. Other indicators would be dim and/or all the lights light up (but dimly) when engaging the breaks or activating any of the turn indicators. A way to verify this is to hardwire another/external grounding wire to any of the metal receptacles of the bulbs straight to a bare metal/chassis of the vehicle.
Of course the standard procedure of checking the fuses, the harness connectors and the wire harness themselves still apply.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
