The bulbs work but the blinker doesn't blink to signal that I am going to make a left turn. What could the problem be?

The rear lights, running lights, flood lights and high beam lights all work. But the license plate light doesn't work. Any thoughts?

Is not the oil. I checked and is ok. I recently change the oil.

Let me add that the alarm has its issues. Works when wants to. Before the incident my mother locked the car and yesterday did not worked. I believe that I could be the computer that burns?

Driving down the road, my vehicle began to shake and make a noise like something was sticking. The shaking comes and goes, but always comes back relatively quick. Then the brakes began to smoke.

No matter if the switch is turned on or off they stay om.

My 2004 Malibu Maxx has only 72,000 miles on it and I have had to have the rack and pinion replaced on it because my steering went out on it. Previous to it going out for about a week or so I would hear creaking noises when I turned the wheel. The mechanic I took it to said the rack and pinion was all chewed up. That was less than a month ago and now my car is making the same creaking/clunking noise when I turn the wheel. I'm afraid it is going to go out again. I know there is a recall for the power steering, which there are no parts for, but this is more serious than that.

The anti lock is on wont let me start engine. And it drains my battery. Can anyonehelp

I can press the release button and can hear it click but it does not open

took back to shop cannot get the check engine light to go off

I had a 05 maxx love it ..... but without warning she ran out of oil one nite I quickly pulled over got help. she now ticks and every Cpl mths I need to fill up on oil there are no signs of oil leaks ither. aswell as recently I was goin up a steep hill gave it a shot of gas it reved up high and my engine light started to blink (as its always on) and a smell of smoke under the hood could be seen and smelled when I shut the car off and started again the light wasn't blinking anymore.. it has done it since again without the smoke was on cruise control and reved up high and the light started to blink and then stoped

Car is parked, engine & all accessories off for as long as 2 or 3 hours. Suddenly the horn will start blowing & the lights will begin flashing.

changed disc pads about a month ago while driving hit pot hole
and now the Abs/traction control/and brake light come on and stay on until turn off car when restart its off the will come on when put in reverse some times or when hitting rough spot, the brakes work fine

Cold or warm start this happens randomly. Turn the key over and it will either start partially then die immediately, sometimes it won't start at all unless I has the hell out of it.And then there's times it sounds like the starter/ignition sticks. Again it very random and most days its fine.
I have had similar problems with an 05 Malibu with no hatch. And it turned out to be a fuel pump. Please please please tell me that's not the case this time...

It kind of sounds like the CD player but it hasn't worked since I bought the car. It drains my battery. What can it be? I also get a RES reading on the info display. Both happen randomly and it doesn't seem that they coincide.

Constant "door ajar" message. Horn blasts while vehicle is off and locked. Also had a problem with battery fully discharging while parked and locked at this same time last year.

Repair shop says its cost alot cuz its hard to fix because my car has a duel seal. one outside trans and one inside. both on cv axel. apparently they need a special tool to get the inner seal popped out. Is this true? whats the tool called? Id rather do it myself but never heard of this duel seal popper tool thing...please help

This is the SS, so it does have the 3.9 engine.

My driving is mostly on the East End of Long Island, which is sparse suburban traffic (except this time of year!) In addition, I make three or four trips a year to upstate New York, approximately 750 miles each.
