    The right rear suicide door will not open.
    When I lift the handle the top latch releases but the bottom latch doesn't, this is with either handle. Is this something I can fix myself and if so can you tell me what I will need. Thank you.

      More than likely the rod to that connects to the lower latch has become disconnected. Usually the clip breaks that locks in the rod to the handle. There is a separate rod that controls upper latch.

      SOUNDS LIKE YOUR BLEND DOOR ACTUATOR / MOTOR IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. ITS WHAT CONTROLS THE AIR FLOW FROM COLD TO HOT ON EITHER SIDE OF THE CAR. THERE IS ONE FOR THE DRIVER SIDE AND ONE FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE.

    After changing the a/c compressor the suction and discharge line will not seal at the flange. Will not stop leaking oil.
    New seals were used.

    2006 Chevy Malibu Radio Drains Battery When Car Is Off & Now Says Locked.
    About 4 yrs ago, my Son called me and said battery was dead in 2006 Chevy Malibu. and that the weird thing was CD player was spinning with the car shut off. Jumped battery but had to take out radio fuse because when shut off, radio would still run! Took it to the ...

      I have seen radios do this. Keep the fuse out of the radio for a week. If it doesn't drain your battery down you will have to consider changing it. Make sure your Random accessory Power cancels when opening drivers door. Radio clock should go out when door opens. Malibu and G6 have had latch issues on doors with moisture intrusion.

      I have kept the fuse out of it for almost 4 years! When I put it in the radio works for like 30 seconds, and then says LOCKED. Went to one Chevy dealer who wanted 500 bucks to fix it which is crazy. Could it be the Ignition Switch needs to be replaced?

      6/22/2014 PirateRose
      Ok here's what happened when trying to unlock it. I put the fuse back in for the Radio, turned ignition on and heard the CD player spin with nothing in it and then LOCKED came on. Tried to unlock and nothing when pushing all buttons. Shut ignition off again, took fuse out and put in again and heard CD player spin again. My guess is Radio itself has a short or something? I don't know what to do anymore with it as I cannot afford much at all. I also don't know if garage or Auto Zone will check it for free :(

      Blower motor resistors divert power or ground through resistors to control blower motor speed
      When not replaced, blower will either not function or will not run at all speeds.
      Replace the blower motor resistor.
    • Chevy doctor
      6/20/2014 Chevy doctor
      Agree with cvo. Check the terminals too to the connector that plugs into the resistor. If they look OK and not corroded or burnt just put a blower resistor in it.

    How do we reset the passenger air bag?

      THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG IS TURNED ON BY THE SEAT SENSOR IN THE PASSENGER SIDE SEAT. IF AND WHEN A PERSON SITS IN THE PASSENGER SIDE SEAT, IT DEPRESSES THE SWITCH IN THE SEAT CUSHION TELLING THE VEHICLE THERE IS SOMEONE THERE RESULTING ON THE AIR BAG TURNING, IF IN FACT U HAVE SOMEONE SIT IN THE PASSENGER SIDE, AND IT DOES NOT TURN OFF THE LIGHT ON THE MIRROR, YOU HAVE A BAD SEAT OCCUPANT SENSOR. UNTIL U GET THAT IXED, ANYONE RIDING ON THAT SIDE, IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT, THE AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY.

      Seat belt has to be buckled. Air bag is enabled by the passenger present system. It has a soft pad on passenger cushion that is designed to enable or disable depending in passengers weight and if buckle is latched. If it still does not change have your dealership rezero passenger prescense system and check for fault codes. Have seen ppm go bad.

      not to bust your bubble. but the buckle does not have to be latched to enable the passenger side airbag. thats why there is a separate presence module located in the seat. if what u say was true, the air bag wouldnt deploy, there is alot of people that do not use seatbelts and thats why the car is designed that way, to ensure riders safety even though they dont use belts. please check facts and understand what u are talking about before you give advice. I am an ASE certified master tech for over 20 years.

      First of all I am not on here to bash. Second I am a master technician and gm world class technician. Gm passenger prescense system has certain criteria that has to be met in order for SDM to enable airbag deployment. PPS has a module Senors pad with fluid and a BTS. Belt tension sensor. If the belt is not clasped in the buckle it will not be enabled. If you want you can talk to the engineer I work with from GM.

    Headlights and radio went out. Everything else electrical works great.
    So here's the deal. I bought a pretty heavily modified 1990 Burban a couple days ago. While driving it home on the highway, all the sudden all the power in the cab went out along with the headlights. My breaks and blinkers still works great. No idea what the deal ...
