2011 Chevrolet Malibu Problems

Acid may leak from the battery at the cable connections, resulting in corrosion on the battery cable ends and in the battery tray. A Leaking battery should be replaced and the cables thoroughly cleaned or replaced if necessary.

The ignition switch may fail causing a no start condition. This is not generally a theft system (passlock) issue because the security light does not illuminate or flash.

Vehicles with V6 engines may see the 30amp high speed cooling fan fuse may blow due to high start up loads associated with the high speed cooling fan motor. Our technicians tell us the high speed cooling fan wiring and fuse should be upgraded to a 40amp circuit to correct this concern. The fan wiring MUST be upgraded along with the fuse to handle the increased current flow.

These fluctuations can cause concerns with various systems that monitor the position of the brake pedal, any of which would increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will attach the wiring harness to the BCM with a spacer, apply dielectric lubricant to both the BCM and harness connector and the BAS and harness connector, and will reprogram the brake pedal sensor to correct these concerns.
