Asked by Dec 15, 2013 at 09:51 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Malibu Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers

Yes...a clear case of insufficient system ground...follow the black battery cable ....the 1/0awg cable from the battery to where it connects to the chassis/ground...take out the bolt and with a coarse wirebrush remove the corrosion there that exists AT the main ground...with a NEW battery (on that is fewer than five years old) you'll be off to your samba lesson~!**NEW battery because tin/antimony batteries will stop accepting a charge about ten percent per year...so five is a grampa~
