#28 of 37 '04 xm radio problems
Sep 04, 2007 (7:41 am)
I have had problems with my radio since about a month after I bought my car new. First I had the check DAB message....2 years later, they finally had a solution and fixed it. The problem they don't have a fix for is the fact that my radio will switch from XM to AM.
I will get in my car, start it up and it's on AM. I never shut my car off with my radio on anything but XM...I almost never change it off of XM. My dealership service consultant is clueless to a solution. Chevy just refers me to my dealership.
Does anyone, or had anyone had this problem? In the last month, I finally decided to track this issue. It has changed on me 6 times in the last month.
Thanks for any help.

#31 of 37 Factory Audio for a 2003 Chevy Malibu
Apr 18, 2008 (2:59 pm)
I have a question, Is it possible to update my factory radio head unit with a 2004 or 2005 radio model?
Anyone know, I like to upgrade my head unit, but still keep it factory, I'm starting to see more and more units come with a AUX plugs for like MP3 players and such.
Would a newer Malibu head unit plug into my 2003 Mali?
Thanks in advance.

hello, im brand new to to this forum. ive ran into a huge problem with my malibu. first off its a 2006 LT V6. before removing my factory speakers i noticed the connection on my aftermarket speakers is different than male connection going into the factory speakers. the factory connection is one small single snap in connector, while on the aftermarket speakers theres 2 random pieces of metal sticking out where you put the + and - onto. ive googled connectors and just about everything else i can think of, any help at all would be greatly appriciated. oh and before you flame me for not searching the forums, i did, for about 30 minutes ty.

yuo can probably get the aftermaket connector for any good installer...or you may even want to contact crutchfield to see about getting the connectors.....or go back to the place you purchased them from to see if they might have the connectors you need..

Frequently the xm radio in my 2008 Malibu LTZ will not turn on (no clock or radio lights as well) until I pull the radio fuse, wait a few hours, and then put the fuse back in. Chevy is investigating the problem.
#35 of 37 premium audio option, worth it?
Jan 19, 2009 (10:58 am)
Hi, I'm considering a malibu purchase,(Lt 1 or 2)..to get the premium audio option, I have to upgrade to the Lt2 package...I like a refined sound quality, not boomy...is the optional audio worth it or should I just buy a good aftermarket setup?...also anyone have recommendations re: aftermarket speakers/amps? thanks

I have the Premium Audio package with my '08 2 LT and to be honest for the extra $500 or so that it cost I would go with an after market system. I am not a big audiophile but the sound is good but I have heard much better "stock" systems.

where is the DIC readout...in my 04 Malibu Maxx its in the radio headunit...so you have to invest more in aftermarket adapters to keep the DIC.....if it is in the odometer, then no worrys other than insuring the steering wheel stereo controls are properly integrated with the new aftermarket unit
