Electrical issues anyone ?
By salty_in_atl on


2001 Chevrolet Malibu 4dr Sedan (3.1L 6cyl 4A)


I have had this car for about 2 years now and the electrical issues started with the blinkers. I got them fixed and then it was the a/c not staying on in Atl. heat ! Now its the theft system or something. They changed out the they keys (door and ignition ) and the ignition box . Now it runs for two weeks then it just cuts off . I almost had it paid off now all this in the middle of winter. Is anyone else having this issue ? Is there a recall on this model ? Help !

We have issues like with with our '01. We got it with over 100k miles and after about 2 months it wouldn't start one morning. We had to pay about $200 because of the alarm system. Apparently this is a known issue too.
