2014 Chevy Malibu hesitates to start

Asked by Jun 22, 2017 at 03:57 PM about the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2014 Chevy Malibu. A few months ago I had this same problem, the
car acts like it is not going to start. Last time it did this it eventual wouldn't start.
I replaced the battery and all seemed to be good until now!! I am now back to
having the same issue before battery replacement. Any thought on what it
might be?

Bad Battery terminals & terminal wires or failing alternator or Starter/solenoid. Bad grounds maybe even those from engine to frame or from battery, Loose connections ect.

Have the alternator tested too.

Also look at the battery terminal wires (inside/under insulation) or battery post and see if you have corrosion. Check for tight connections to starter. Make sure all electrical connection to alternator and battery and starter are tight.

Can you describe the problem better ? does it crank (turn over ) when you hit the key ? cranks slow , ? First thing in the morning ? after being driven ? It all helps . Any anti theft ?
