WHAT IS HAPPENING

I have a 05 chevy malibu classic base model. similar problems. there are 3 settings on the lights. Auto setting allows the odometer to be read and radio back-lights come on. but in parking light setting or lights on setting the odometer dims to almost unreadable and radio lights go out even though you can hear the radio playing music. None of the ac heater lights work and the dash doesn't light up except for the dummie lights. The horn was working, Now the horn has stopped working and the lights on window switch don't light up. I have replaced dimmer switch, turn signal-light switch and dash cluster. I am now told it might be the BCM(body control module)and apparently it needs to get flashed or replaced and reprogrammed at the dealership. Also, when in auto during the day the odometer and radio are illuminated but when it gets dark they go out. No blown fuses now, have jiggled all wires and looked for cuts and shorts in wires.

The gas gauge reads empty after just being filled and after about 1/4 the tank is gone, it will finally read correctly. We were also having issues with starting the car. We needed to push on the gas while trying to start it to make it start sometimes. We had the fuel pump replaced and the gauge still wont work.

Can't find reliable information on where to locate and replace...

the locks keep locking and unlocking even while driving

i have a lot of problems with my cruise control sometimes i have it set and it just goes off and sometimes i can't even set it

I was told that it is either the oil sending unit, leak from the front seal or leak from the axle seal.

I recently put a 2004 3.5 lt engine in my 2002 Malibu, which had a 3.1 lt. engine. I used the 2002 fuel rail and plenum. I also replaced the harmonic balaner for one that had the relucter wheel on it because the 2004 doesn't use that type.The crankshaft position sensor has three wires instead of two on thee 2004 but the sensor for the 2004 is shorter than the 2002 so I have to use the 2004 sensor. What do I do with the third wire that would be coming from the sensor?

parked car one evening all was working good then next day the check eng. light stays on, and the gas gauge dosn't work. what is wrong with it?

There is no code with it. The only codes popping up are for the O2 sensor that just gave out yesterday, and the chiming has been happening for a while. No lights to go with it, just the chime as soon as I cut the wheel after start up. Forward or backward; doesn't matter.

Cylinder 4 misfire code was set and the catalytic converter was clogged up.

Damaged Control Module

when i trun off my car its like it still is running on alternator it is not the ingnition i use to be able to jiggle the shifter and it would click the head was replaced now it wont even do trhat

fuel guage goes up and down from full to empty every few minutes. tank is full. engine lite does not come on though

I'm disabled and can't get the tank off so can I put an electric fuel pump in line without pulling the one in the tank.

when the dial is turned into the on postion the heat/ac does not turn on

2002 malibu with 128k miles. mechanic says it is not the intake manifold leak problem this car is known for.

Already replaced more parts than I can count. Help?

Turn signal does not flash after car boosted. Either left side dash bulb and indicator bulbs(front and rear) or them in right side stay on when pulling the switch to left or right.

However, everything above works find if only turning cars's electric on (no boosted).

Hazard signal acts same way. A new hazard relay had been replaced. No help.

I need a diagram to locate the front oxygen sensor

on a 1997 chevy malibu?

Today as I started my 2011 Malibu, I noticed a slight hesitation, but after letting it warm up it seemed to be running fine. Then this evening I got in, tried starting the car and the security light came on. All of the lights on the dash lit up like a Christmas Tree, then the gauges starting moving back and forth, my car actually sounded like it was trying to start, but I had already removed the key. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be going on? This is the first time it has ever done anything like this.
Thank you

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

I have replaced the fog light switch. I am frustrated. its hard to watch my speed limit at night.

my wife heard a noise from the motor , i had it check out it was fine it still read nothing

I've continuously been adding coolant to my car and every time I look back in it I see there is a gray/beige sludge-like substance on the cap and in the tank. What could be leaking in to cause this? Oil has been suggested to me, and if that's it, how costly is it to repair a leak like that?

Another thing: Jiffy Lube charges $80 for a coolant flush, and Aamco charges $170. Is there any reason to take it to Aamco and pay more than twice what Jiffy Lube charges?

it can be jump started by another car but drains the portable jump starter with no lights or clicks

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

The check engine light came on after I replaced the front break pads. is there something I need to reset after replacing the pads?
