2009 Chevrolet Malibu Recalls
An electrical connection problem at the body control module can result in various concerns related to application of the brake pedal.
1) Exterior brake lights not working as expected
2) Difficulty disengaging the cruise control
3) Moving the shifter out of park without pushing the brake pedal
4) Disabling of the traction control, electronic stability control, and braking assist systems
Vehicles equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission are being recalled because the indicated gear position of the shift lever may not match the actual gear.
Your shifter shows what gear you have selected. If the shifter cable should become dislodged, it may show the incorrect gear. If this happens, your vehicle may not be secured in "Park."
