    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?

      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.

      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?
    We just purchased a used 2006 Trailblazer and the mirror says "passenger air bag OFF" How do we turn it on?

      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.
    • Chevy doctor

      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.

    What is the name of the black strip under the door on both sides of the car.
    I need the black strip that is located the length of the car under the doors. I call it the rocker panel cover. Not able to find, thinking it is labeled something else. I will also need the clips that hold it to the vehicle.

      I think you are talking about the Sill plate weatherstrip. Does it sit on the inside of the vehicle along floor panel when you open sliding doors.
    • JONES AUTO REPAIR
      6/19/2014 JONES AUTO REPAIR
      with the doors close, from outside the car. if its located under the doors and runs the length of the car like stated in your description, it would in fact be the rocker panel molding.

      Can you get on the cable with a pair of vice grips?

      If you take the front grill out, can you get at the latch mechanism for the hood?
