#5 of 70 Remote start problem fixed
Mar 25, 2011 (9:07 pm)
My remote start on my 2005 Malibu Maxx went out and the Chevy dealer said it was the hood latch sensor that was the problem. The sensor was malfunctioning and the computer was sensing that the hood was open so the remote start would not work. They wanted $230 to replace the hood latch. Being the cheapskate that I am (and knowing I could replace the hood latch myself) I ordered the part online for $80 and put it in myself. A few bolts and unhooking a wiring harness & hood release cable and the latch was replaced and the problem was fixed. The GM part number for the hood latch assembly is #20763655.

I have a 2001 Malibu LS. Over time, some bulbs on the dashboard instrument panel need replacing. How do I get at the bulbs to replace them?

#12 of 70 2005 Malibu LS V6 Crazy Problems.....

Hopefully someone on here will be able to give me some insight as to what is going on with my car. The car runs flawlessly as far as getting me from point A to point B, but does crazy weird things as I am driving. I do not have any remotes for the car, though the car does have a remote start feature. I have two keys for the car, and both of them have plus signs on them, both of them crank the car, and I get the same problems when I use either one of them. Here's what the car is doing..........
1. First off, the alarm does crazy things. If I close a door and then open it up a few second later without locking it and then unlocking it first, the alarm will go off. I also had the alarm go off the other day while the car was RUNNING. It also went off when I removed the gas cap to pump gas.
2. As soon as I crank the car, all of the gauges start going up and down like crazy and do not stop the whole time I am driving. The same thing applies to the electronic lights on the car, such as the airbag light, battery light, oil light, seat belt light, and all of the lights on the radio and console flash on and off too. The whole time this is happening, the security emblem light on the dash stays on, except to flash along with the other lights. Also, the radio will just display three long rows of dashes and says "locked."
Hopefully someone will be able to help me out. If you need anymore information on the situation just let me know. Thanks.

QUESTION: Is your alarm an "aftermarket unit installed by the selling dealer," or is it part of the vehicle as it came from the factory? ----- If it is an "after market alarm," disconnect the unit, and see if you still have the symptoms. ----- This vehicle needs to visit the dealer! ------- Best Regards. ------ Dwayne

Unfortunately, the alarm that is installed in the vehicle is factory installed. I was thinking the very same thing - I very well may be taking the car to the dealer where I bought it either today or tomorrow. I just hope they don't come up with a fix that will cost well into the hundreds of dollars. We all know that dealer service repair people are really good at that type thing.
