ESC light goes on, for no reason as it did before the recalled repair. If it's that wiring again shouldn't Chevy have to fix it again!
I charge battery. Start car and shortly the battery light comes on and the battery power starts to fade. I replaced the alternator and continue to have the issue. What else should I look at?
My car still won't start after all this is done.... anyone have any suggestions of what else it can be? It's a 2000 chevrolet Malibu and only the dash lights come on when turning over lights turn off battery is only a year old. Checked the fuses and it looks good
I was on E and I filled the car up then didn't start up. I don't smell gas I don't hear the full pump kick on and i found out that the one fuze #15 was out put new one in i don't know what to really think it could be...
has been going on for while,today it is very bad...car has no acceleration and takes forever to get up to speed. Some one said something about the traction control,(tires wear out very unevenly) I think its the transmission. If I try to take off like normally(giving it enough gas) it jumps gears....just about all warning lights are on on dash, never starts on first turn of key,usually the 2nd turn works,
So my question is do we get refunded for the switch if there is a recall?
2000 Chevy Malibu 3.1L
3 weeks ago i was driving and the
car stalled and would not restart. It
would not even turn over. Finally
found out the starter was bad but
that didn't explain it stalling. I
replaced the starter and now I can
start the car and drive it but now the
abs light, brake light and theft
system light will all come on. (Theft
system light doesn't come on each
time) the abs light and brake light will
come on and stay on until I kill the
car. The theft system light usually
goes out on its own. Also my fuel
gauge will read the proper amount of
fuel then suddenly drop to empty
and my temperature gauge will also
drop. They stay down a few seconds
and then return to normal. Yesterday
it did this 26 times in 14 minutes.
Any help on this would be greatly
appreciated.
I drove 40 miles yesterday half the time the light was on and off then the rest of the time it was off, the check engine light is on but its just I need a new gas cap, the 3.5 engine came from a Buick trezza and it drives great just don't know why!
My ac is blowing hot air so we put some R-134A Refrigerant Freon Car AC Air Conditioning Refill Recharge Kit in it and it cooled for about 1.25 days and it's blowing hot air again.
what's my next step?
it happens on all hot days and then once in awhile it will blow nice ac air and while I'm driving it switches to blowing hot air. The hotter it is outside is when it rarely blows any ac cool air.
