#1493 of 1510 2009 Chevy Malibu LTZ Start Issues
Feb 20, 2012 (5:50 pm)
I bought a used LTZ with 42K miles which was working perfectly. All of a sudden one morning, it would not start up at all. The problem was diagnosed to be a faulty/erased?? control board and body control model which I had replaced. Now everything ie lights, horn, wiper, comes back on once the key is turned in the ignition, but the engine will still not start. There is also no sound from the radio.
How can this be fixed??

You can remove and replace that emblem. I did it when my GF's kid threw a matchbox car and dented mine. It is attached via metal tabs that wrap around the plastic.
I ordered a replacement emblem on Ebay and then used a pick to pull the old one up. You will have to pull up on it pretty hard to unbend the clips and the old one will be trashed. I shortened the tabs on the new emblem by clipped them since you will not be able to bend it under the plastic and set the new one in place of the old one. It is pretty secure once set in place.
The solution was much better than the price the dealer gave me.

Yesterday my dad went to turn off his 2010 Malibu and he noticed that his head lights would not turn off. He got back into the car and turned it back on, he then noticed that the check engine light was on, as well as the ABS, and low tire air light. His Security light may have also stayed on as well. The only way he could shut everything down was by disconnecting the battery. Has anyone had this problem? Does anyone know what could cause this to happen?

I would recommend he take his car to an Autozone and have them check the battery and charging system. I was having problems with my TPMS sensors and check engine light coming on. I fought with the dealer as they said everything was working properly. The dealer said my car battery dying, the mechanic showed me that it the amps were not up there. The voltage was fine. I took it to autozone and replaced the car battery and all the problems went away. I guess the low amp condition can cause alot of issues with the computer.
