2011 Chevy Malibu LT

Asked by Nov 20, 2018 at 03:24 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I just got this 2011 Chevy Malibu a few
weeks ago. I did some maintenance on the
car already. I changed the front two tires to
new ones. I have changed the water pump,
installed new relays for horn wipers and high
beams on lights. This  morning my car did
not want to start. All the dashboard lights
were on but when I went to Twist the key all
the way to turn on the car, it would not start.
No noise it just died. I did notice on the
dashboard it says SVC tire monitor, Service
traction & Service ESC. Any idea what is
wrong with is wrong with my car? Also my
car is currently in the mechanic shop.

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good, all ends, not just at the battery. Did you check for applicable trouble codes? If the starter motor won't crank the engine, with testing, we can bypass everything to see if starter will crank the engine, but, that doesn't mean it will start. If you try that make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Check your security system, applicable trouble codes.
