Hello everyone I really need help too figure out what’s wrong with my car. I have a 2014 Chevy Malibu LT 2.5L it has an issue where the stop/start kicks in when I sometimes stop it shakes most of the the time but every one In awhile the stop/start kicks in but won’t turn the car back on. After it turns off completely I try cranking the car back on but it just struggles to turn over I would have to press the gas to give it power too turn on. The Malibu has 120k currently I bought with 89k miles I don’t think the previous owner changed the spark plugs but I also think it might be the starter. Please help

I'd change spark plugs since it is idling rough and past due. Both battery ages should also be checked and replaced as maintenance if original. Mix in a scan for fault codes also - all 4 code families. If there is a code it might point to the dual battery control module but I'd start with maintenance first.
Thank you for the help I’ll be changing the spark plugs soon I also had the main battery changed when it first started happening but it didn’t fix the problem and they also checked the smaller one and told me it was good. I did change one of the solenoids also at the same time as the battery and now I have the check engine light on again that I got checked and it’s the other solenoid now that’s bad. I’ll keep it updated once I do all the maintenance. Thanks again.
