Oh boy here I go. Soooo I bought a cert. Pre-owned 17 malibu back in July 2022. lt 90k leather love it. About 2 weeks after buying every time I stopped and took off break the stop start feature would cause car to cut out for like a 10th of a second the wheel would lock and ac and radio would also cut out which was annoying. After a couple weeks more it would stall when stop start activated and would need a jump cause it'd just click click. So I learned when in standard mode where u shift with the buttons stop start is deactivated so when I was coming to a stop I'd shift down and then go back into drive after I took foot off break. But after a couple weeks of that it started stalling out just being in drive and so I started driving as a standard all the Time but when shifting to reverse if I accidentally landed in drive for more than a split second it'd stall and I'd need a jump. Also it started to randomly throughout the day when I'd try to start it just clicking but I'd leave it overnight and it'd start. Then I stop and run in a store for a few minutes and it just clicks. If ur still following God bless. So after a few weeks it needed to be jmpstarted everytime. All of a sudden after driving as a manual for a few weeks I accidentally a couple of times put it in regular drive and it didn't stall and the stop start didn't activate. So I tested it in my neighborhood and it would drive perfectly in drive and the stop start thing doesn't engage anymore. So if you're still following now I have to Jumpstart it every time but other than that it now is perfect and stop start doesn't activate. I bought a nice jumper that's the size and weight of an old cell phone and have been doing this for like 5 6 months now with no other issues. I noticed that someone had at some point taken the whole rug up I assume to try to fix a major electrical issue. But I'm terrified to have someone mess with it just to go through all that bs again. Does anyone out there have any idea what is going on? I have seen online somewhere a while ago someone had the same issues up until it started stalling during the stop start thing but that was where this person left off. I've gotten so used to just quickly hooking up cable jump in car and starts up instantly everytime. Also I've never had breaks this perfectl even in brand new cars I've had breaks always would go on me quick. Can I possibly be doing damage to anything?
