The reason the radio is staying on is the retained accessory power not shutting down when the driver's door is opened. You can verify this by opening the door with the key on, if the door ajar light on the instrument panel does not light up the switch in the door latch is defective. You will need to replace the door latch.

    The door latch is located on the rear edge of the door, it's what holds the door shut when you close it. You have to remove the inner trim panel and the three large screws that you see around it on the rear edge of the door to get it out.

2005 chevy malibu maxx radio stopped working after getting gas


if you have auto daytime lights and they don't work then your radio will not work either. trust me on that. you have one lead to 12v source and acc lead that is wired to auto daytime lights which when you open your door radio shuts off.

Hi I just bought a 2002 chevy malibu LS. However when i went to start it, the battery was dead. When i turn off the ignition, the radio and the clock was still on. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong...


buy a new battery if this dosnt work trying looking into a starter or ignition relay or coil pack this all will make it not turn over but the radio and clock will work, also look into if your security light is on if so the key could be broke which would make it a problem cause then you have to go to a dealership and buy a new one which might cost a bit. hope this helped :)

Im having problems with my 05 maxx..... electrical???


I would get all the electrical schematics and then look for problems like blown fuses affecting the areas you are describing. Then systematically troubleshoot the wiring. Simple.
Now, I am looking for the mentioned schematics on the web. I just bought (2010-01-28) a 2005 Malibu Maxx, and can't wait to have it ready for pickup in 2 days...

Locks go crazy,alarm goes off, now the car won't start.


I've had this problem under warranty on my '05 Malibu LS. They replaced and reprogrammed the fobs. Looking in my shop manual, it seems the problem is from the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. My car started doing this two years later off warranty and now I just lock the doors from the outside with the key or by pushing the lock stem buttons by hand on each door. The security option in the DIC needs to be set to RKE for this to work though.

Hatch won't open on 2004 Malibu Maxx


Try pushing the trunk release and turning the key in the lock at the same time.
It sounds like the electric lock has not released for what ever reason.
You should hear the trunk release relay when you push the remote.

Stuck CD in the multi CD player of 2004 Chevy Malibu Maxx


The only thing that is left for you to do is to remove the stereo and then disassemble it and remove it yourself. A little daunting but needs to be done. Sounds like it went in wrong and then became jammed
