Re: Malibu Remote start

With the remote start you can step into a cool car when it's hot out, or a heated car when it's cold out, you decide if it's worth it to you. I'm in my 60's, it's worth it to me.

Re: Malibu Remote start

Does the heat and a/c only come on if you have the automatic climate control?

I'm pretty sure that without auto CC it would just turn on at whatever setting you left it at when you shut it off last.

Re: Malibu Remote start

Sorry to thread jack, but does the remote start have a "pit stop mode"? Meaning, i can pull the keys out while its running to run into a store?

Re: Malibu Remote start

Nope. Wish it did. My old Black Widow RKE had that feature and I used it sometimes, especially on really hot days. It had a timer that I could set for 15, 20, or 30 minutes. If you got in and touched the brakes before turning the key on it would kill the engine. So would popping the hood. And with shift interlock you have to step on the brakes to shift out of P so it pretty much guaranteed nobody could steal it without another key.

Re: Malibu Remote start

Just turn off the car, get out, then remote start it. It might not be quite as convenient, but the end result is the same- car secured, started (w/out key in), 10 minute timer ticking away..

Re: Malibu Remote start

@Malibu25, on page 2-5 of the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu owner's manual I have found the following information:

"Your vehicle may have a remote starting feature that allows you to start the engine from outside the vehicle. It may also start the vehicle's heating or air conditioning systems and rear window defogger. When the remote start system is active and the vehicle has an
automatic climate control system, it will automatically regulate the inside temperature. Normal operation of these systems will return after the ignition key is turned to ON/RUN."

Please, let me know if you need other information about this.

Michelle, Chevrolet Customer Service
