car won't start

Asked by May 29, 2017 at 08:13 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Chevy malibu. If I leave radio a/c on or auto light on and turn
off engine , car will not start.  I have learned to turn everything off, then wait
for 45 minutes then car will start.During those 45 minutes, cannot open
windows, doors nothing otherwise have to wait an ADDITIONAL 45 minutes
has new starter, new starter relay. alternator, battery, ignition switch  is ok.  
If the weather is hot. I have to wait until it cools down, and here in San
Antonio that means after dark for car to restart.  Midas looked at it and
could not find out what was wrong. They would not even charge me for
labor.  HELP!!! oh btw, since I have had the car the front light assemblies
left side keep exploding replaced four times. No I won't go to dealer they
treat me like a stupid female, very condescending.
