Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 2017 Malibu has seizures intermittently when starting, Gauges go crazy,
dash full of alarms such as transmission not in park and power steering fail,
computer says loss of communication when hooking up a scan tool. Happens
once or twice a week. Car settles down after 10 minutes, then runs fine for a
few days, then happens again.

1 Answer

The Chevy dealer found a spot in the wiring harness that was rubbing against the engine block and had wore through the insulation and caused two of the wires to have partial grounds as the rubbed against the engine block. This was a factory defect. I was disappointed that this was not covered under the warranty
