2013 malibu radio turns on and off by itself.

Asked by Jan 27, 2015 at 10:30 AM about the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco 2SA

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2013 Malibu eco and the radio/nav display keeps turning on and off and when it
is on not all the icons are loaded at all times. The display also turns on intermittently
when car is off with keys out of the ignition. I have not seen this problem with this car
anywhere yet. Can anyone tell me anything?

I have the same problem on my 2015 Malibu that I have driven for less than ten days. Did you ever end up taking yours to a dealership?

yes, I did take it back. They told me the radio internally shorted out, and they replaced it under warranty. Was fine after that, but I have since traded for a new canyon. I know this doesn't answer anything. I never got an answer from anybody it was like pulling teeth to get an answer from the dealership other than "your radio is bad, and needs replaced for $1100.00". Hopefully this at least lets you know its under warranty.

Granted my 2012 Chevy Malibu is5 now, but I've been having the exact same problem. And I'm out of warranty, so $1100 for a new stereo and 200& change labor. And apparently this is a super common issue, but they won't do a recall... So it's either deal without a stereo and dash lights and no rear camera, or pay the money to get it fixed. Doesn't seem right, considering how extremely common it is. Had I known then, I may have likely chosen differently.

I am having the same issue with my 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. The dealership said they would need to call in their electronics guys to assess it for $120 then go from there. If it is defective it would cost approximately $1500. This is nonsense...
