Car won't start
I bought a Chevrolet Malibu last week. It's a 2002
and it won't start at all. It doesn't crank, the doors
won't even lock from the remote... there have been
a few times when the key would get stuck in the
ignition and I'd have to leave it and come back..
could that be the issue.. the key is not in the ignition
now but the car is completely off and not doing
This car came from Southend Auto Exchange in Charlotte NC
I'd get the ignition switch looked at, if you replace, remember you have to have it programmed to the vehicle. But you might be looking at a dead battery or a parasite draw.
Sounds like a dead battery. Have it load tested. Before replacing the ignition switch talk to your local Chevy Dealer. Your Malibu may be involved in a GM recall for the ignition switch. HTH. -Jim
