2005 Chevrolet Malibu Problems

The fuel gauge may not read correctly and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0455/P0461 stored for a fuel level sensor issue. These faults may be caused by a fuel vapor line inside the fuel take interfering with the fuel level sensor. If this is found to be the case, repositioned and securing the vapor line should correct this concern. If no fault is found with the fuel vapor line, the fuel level sensor itself may be at fault.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Questions

I don't know whether its a fuse are its just stuck.

When I get this msg, I lose all power steering. But, then, I just shut the car off and restart and that temporarily fixes the problem. Also, the steering wheel starts moving on its own and makes wierd noises

I recently changed my turning signal light switch, but now the blinkers start blinking and sometimes stop blinking like if they turn off

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Recalls

The vehicles being recalled are equipped with an electric power steering (EPS) assist system. The EPS can fail unexpectedly while driving. If this were to occur, steering ability would be maintained but much greater effort would be necessary to steer the vehicle, especially at slow speeds. One of four remedies will be applied depending on the model and year. Parts are not yet available so expect a second notification when they are.

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Reviews

This car is the worst, by far, I have ever owned. Constant steering problems, steering system replaced 4 times. Power steering failures, rear wiper fixed twice. At least 20 times this car has been in the show for warranty repairs in 4 years. The lease is up next month. Thank goodness it's going. I work for GM, but don't think I'll buy another Chevrolet.

I've made a few trips between San Diego and Phoenix and consistently get 32 mpg. For only being a 4 cylinder I pass people going up hills doing 65-70 with no problem. It has plenty of room and is very comfortable. We love it. No complaints except air conditioning doesn't seem cold enough.

i have only had my car a few days ,but i bought it used 6000 miles and need to know bout the dashlights not coming on and door locks on driver door not working put new part on and its still not working
