#121 of 208 Owner of 2004 Chevy Malibu Classic and in need of help NOW
Jul 08, 2007 (9:29 am)
My car runs fine. However the windows suddenly would not go back up, the radio stopped working, the DRLs stopped working and I have no airflow inside the car. It does this on an on and off again sorta thing. I have checked all the fuses all are fine. I have checked all the Relays and again they are all fine. I checked the connections to the battery and tightened it down. So now Im not sure what else it could be. Any help would be greatly appriciated!
#122 of 208 2004 Malibu classic question
Aug 07, 2007 (11:24 am)
Hi, can anyone tell me how to tell if a 2004 Malibu classic should have the remote unlock feature? We are buying one for my daughter to replace her 1998 Malibu LS and the seller doesn't have the key fobs for a remote door unlock, but the car has the power locks and windows. I guess the key fob unlock system was an option that model, but with the power door locks I would think it would have the remote unlock. Also the key the seller has is not an original key (no big black plastic thingy) but it starts the car fine and we drove it for about twenty minutes with no problems, did the 2004 classic model not have the chip in the key that affects the car running if it is not there? Thanks in advance for the help.

Check all grounding points for loose connections,ect.
All of the functions you mentioned are controlled by the
BCM (body control module), it might be going bad, mine
('05) acts up once in awhile too. Trunk pops open, radio
resets to an AM oldies station, door lock pop up and down.
acts like it's friggin Christine!

Also can anyone tell me if the 2004 classic key has to be cut by the dealer or as long as it is cut by a machine, can it be cut by any key cutter at a store? The ignition key we got with it looks to be a regular off the rack 1.00 key and it works fine. My mechanic said something like the newer cars don't have the chip on the key but the ignition recognizes whether the key is cut or if someone is trying to use a pick to start the car? thanks

Found out if you have the right blank anyone can cut it, but cut incorrectly, you can start the car and drive it, but it won't open the doors or trunk, don't ask how I figured that out I also found a site that states that this model had the remote door unlock as standard equipment.

Malibu is a chevrolet so you could go to a Chevrolet dealer or maybe a GMC dealer. Your key may be wrong or ???? Good luck with this problem.
#128 of 208 2000 Malibu ower need help
Aug 30, 2007 (6:28 am)
I have a second hand 2000 Malibu. It works well until recently. When i start the car, the engine is on, but the gas and coolant indicators have no reading, no airconditioner, no air flow, if in the garage, the lights are not on too. But you can still drive the car. Most weird things is that after you drive a few minutes, everything is just back to normal. Sometimes if you push a little harder when you turn on the car, I will be fine. But the past few days, it seems this trick didn't work. I don't know what to do as I knew nothing about car. I called the dealer this morning, they told me they have a look at the car before giving any suggestions. Thanks in advance for those know what's going on with my car.

#130 of 208 04 lt brake light and cruise control issues
Sep 25, 2007 (2:18 pm)
i have a 04 LT model and i'm having trouble with my brake lights and cruise control. Sometimes my brake lights are always on, other times they are backwards (pressing the brake makes them go off and releasing the brake turns them on) and also when the lights are messed up the cruise control does not engage. I've replaced the fuse for the cruise but that didn't work. car is out of warranty so i'm not really wanting to take it to the dealer. Any information would be great. Thanks in advance
