#2 - Ignition Module problem of the 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
The car is a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. Car will not start fuel pump shuts down, car thinks it is being broken into. Have to sit in car
for 10 minutes with key in ignition to override system. Has happened 4 stimes in last month. Also,
fuel pump shut down while driving on parkway- lucky to get to side of road without an accident. By the way, new fuel pump and module replaced at 60,000 so that is not the issue. . How many people need to
get into accidents or die before the NHTSA gets involved and makes chevy do the right thing and
replace this ignitiions and passlock parts that are defective!!!! OH, and they got a bail out- but the
consumers dont get any and have to continute to pay them for repairs that they caused in the first place
gm makes an astronomical amount of money on these repairs. I hope the NHTSA gets a share of that money because you certainly arent interested in correcting the situation. How many years and tens of thousands of complaints does it take???????. It was Wednesday, September 14, 2011 when this ignition module issue happened.

#3 - Ignition Module problem of the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu
Crash was involved with the Chevrolet Malibu. The vehicle was a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu. While driving 15 mph on black ice, the vehicle struck a guard rail head-on. There were no injuries. The body shop repaired the vehicle and, a week later, the contact noticed that the engine remains on even when the key is not in the ignition. The dealer stated that the issue was due to the body control module, which was located underneath the dashboard. The insurance company and manufacturer stated that the failure would not be covered.

#5 - Ignition Module problem of the 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
The car was a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1G1ND52F95_. I bought my car about 9 months ago. It has about 36,750 miles on it now and my theft system light started staying on after I would start my car. Then a couple of days later it would not let me start the car at all. The theft system light would steadily blink. I had to get it towed, they changed out the ignition in it and reprogrammed the car and runs fine. The gm place I took it to said they have had a lot of problems with this certain part going out in cars. I don't think it is fair that I had to pay for this when it has been out of warranty for only 700 miles. This ignition module problem happened on 08/23/2007.
#6 - Ignition Module problem of the 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
The car involved is a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. The VIN of this Malibu is 1G1ND52J93_. During normal operation of my car, I will randomly have issues with the passlock theft system not allowing me to start my vehicle. I had the modules replaced at a gm dealership approximately 15 months ago. At that time, I simply parked my car for the night in my driveway. I came out the next morning to take my daughter to school and the car would not start. I had to have my car towed to the nearest chevy dealership. They called gm and it was recommended that I replace the ignition module and a sensor to the tune of over $500. I was told this would fix the issue. Now, I find myself facing the same problem only 30,000 miles later. I stopped at a gas station and filled the vehicle up with gas. When I went to leave, the car would not start and the theft system light was on. Being a veteran to this issue, I immediately turned the car off the waited for 10-15 minutes. This will sometimes work to allow the car to restart again. However, this time it did not. This same issue occurred and the results were the same. If you simply do a search for chevy Malibu passlock, you will easily find the thousands of people affected by this problem on a daily basis. It puts everyone at an inconvenience and even some lives at risk (as it can turn the car off while it is in motion). It was Friday, January 15, 2010 when this ignition module issue happened.

#8 - Ignition Module problem of the 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
The car involved was a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu. The fuel guage reports incorrect fuel level. You can go the the gas station and fill the car up and the gas hand will show it as being empty and before you put fuel in the tank the guage was at a 1/4 tank. You may have to turn the car off and on several times before it will show that it is full. Also, while driving all of a sudden the car will cut off in heavy traffic. One time the car showed 3/4 tank of fuel while it was empty. Luckly, I was on a downgrade and was able to get it into the emergency lane on the interstate. The dealer has told me that there is not a problem with the fuel system. Furthermore, the check engine light has come on because the oxygen sensor has been damaged by the car running out of gas. This problem occurred on Apr. 9, 2004.
