  1. 2017 Cylinder 3 misfire?

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    All you get is guesses based on provided info here. The symptoms of the piston failure in the gen9 1.5 and 2.0 are usually pretty similar. You don't always see engine power reduced with a piston crack. What you usually see is flashing CEL (often P0300), usually stabilitrak light, often rough...
  2. 2017 Cylinder 3 misfire?

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Based on the year, scenario of occurrence, lights/codes, yeah piston would be my guess. Of course it will require diagnosis. Your past posts indicate this was a used car purchase that was previously a rental. I don't think that is an exception to warranty or anything so should be fully covered...
  3. Cooling glove box

    Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)
    Interesting. I don't even have a light in mine. I've never read anything about this so know nothing. What year and trim is this?
  4. 2018 Shifter malfunction after ECM update

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    @Lnieto111: I see you have now edited your post. Thank you for that. I have moved your post to the gen9 section and updated the title to be a bit more descriptive. Most of the car's systems interact to some degree but I doubt your ECM update is related here. The shifter issue and the resulting...
  5. 2018 Shifter malfunction after ECM update

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Hello and welcome. You have posted in the gen7 section which is for 2008-2012 vehicles. Your post doesn't indicate what car you have. My guess... a 2018 and you posted in the wrong section. That said, before this goes needlessly way off track with the wrong advice... Please read this...
  6. Gen 9 longevity

    Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)
    Engine issues can produce dozens of different fault codes related to dozens of various issues. The big one on the 1.5 and 2.0 is piston cracking and P0300 can accompany that. It doesn't always. Rough idle, reduced power (both the message and/or performance), stabilitrak light - lots of various...
  7. 2015 Chevy Malibu My Link Touch Radio

    Gen 8 Do It Yourself Maintenance
    2015 MyLink is dealer-only update (if there is an update).
  8. Customer Satisfaction Program N182195660

    Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)
    No sorrys needed! Thanks for letting us know. You are the first on this forum to get notified. Funny about the date. My gut says they suspended notification due to the strike. Good to have parts since they need a bunch. I lean toward lucky; I think having the repair done is good. I can...
  9. 2017 Chevy Malibu Engine Power Reduced

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Yuck. I hope they get it taken care of properly. No one wants a hassle for a car. Good luck and please let us know what they find.
  10. 2017 Chevy Malibu Engine Power Reduced

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Hello and welcome. Lemon law issues vary a bit from State to State. Generally, to be a "lemon" and take advantage of lemon law protection you need to purchase the car new and encounter a significant defect in the first year of ownership. The dealer may repair that defect. If they have to...
  11. Gen 9 longevity

    Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)
    As for that issue, there is a new bulletin for this with a new fix. It adds a cheap jumper to the harness and is likely much cheaper. The info is in the thread you linked near the end and in post #2. GM may have some instruction to cover it or perhaps you can negotiate something. It may still...
  12. The last Chevy Hybrid

    Gen 9 Hybrid Forum
    Hey @Dr. Manhattan! Glad to read your MH and Volt are still running. I hadn't seen you in a while and figured your lease ran out as most MH owners have disappeared. Keep em going as long as you can! I don't really agree with many of your opinions or assessments (especially GM being inept) but...
  13. Can't find a replacement auxiliary battery for 2015 LS Malibu. Help, please?

    Gen 8 Do It Yourself Maintenance
    Have you checked local Chevy dealers? A while back another forum member got the OE part at the parts counter and it was $120 bucks. It looks like O'Reily needs to order and is still $112. I feel your pain on the two batteries; I wouldn't like that, especially when it gets to be 5 years old and...
  14. Chevy malibu 2016 premier leaking in trunk

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    Welcome @Charlotte. First things first, this forum isn't operated or owned by GM. We are just other owners like you. Second, you have posted a statement about your 2016 Premier in the gen5 section. Those cars are 15-20 years older. Third, I have now moved your discussion to the appropriate...
  15. Center console storage

    Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)
    @driver1030 The 2016 thing is totally confusing and it is not your fault at all. Just to clarify to make sure the correct wording is being used (there is no "2016 Malibu Classic"). You always want to look for gen8 2016 Malibu Limited items and checking for 2015 is a great suggestion by @tnmats...
  16. Center console storage

    Gen 9 General Discussion (Generation 9)
    @driver1030 Do you have a 2016 Malibu LT or 2016 Malibu Limited LT? I see posts of yours in gen8 and gen9 threads. If unsure does it look like #1 or #2 below? I don't even see a link to a product in this thread. What product did you order? I ordered this one, looks like the pics in this thread...
  17. 2020 LT no interior lights upon entry

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    On mine, If that button is illuminated signaling OFF the interior lights won't turn on when entering. The other way, maps, dome, usb area... all turn on when entering. There is also a little turn knob on the driver side below the vent; on mine that dims the instrument panel and such but any...
  18. Noise cancellation module

    Gen 9 Modifications
    In earlier gen9 it was on the right side of the trunk. In 2019 or 2020 it moved behind/under the glove box. It's one of those locations.
  19. 2020 LT no interior lights upon entry

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    If it is dark out no lights come on inside the car? Check the overhead console, the thing where onstar is and the map lights. There is a button up there with a little door open symbol next to word OFF to disable entry lighting. Other than that... check settings then vehicle. I have settings for...
  20. 2018 vs 2019 Doors

    Gen 9 Problems/Service Issues/Troubleshooting
    They should; no change to the door geometry was made from 2018-2019. The mid-cycle changes were mostly frontal and a little powertrain. According to gmpartsdirect the LT door shell parts are the same part number from 2018-2019. You can check there under body/door and components.
