I am totally new to having a Chevy Malibu. Mine is an 06. One day I went to start it and it ran for a few moments then died. Been dead for about a week. I replaced the battery still wont start. We charged the old battery before getting this new it ran fine. Next thing I know I go to use my car it wont turn over so this when I decided to buy a new battery. Well put the new battery into today. It wont start or even try to turn over. The dash now reads Error. I have very little car knowledge so what could be causing this issue? Please explain it in easily understanding for me.

The first step is finding someone who can read the codes stored in the computer. You can even buy a device from amazon that can read codes for less than $50. Just search "vehicle code reader" and pick whichever one has good reviews and an agreeable price.
