I still have this car but I have to replace the brake light switch every few months. That fixed the problem for about two months. In addition, the electronic stability control and traction warning indicators illuminated. My local mechanic has given up on trying to figure out the problem. However, when the brake pedal was not depressed, the brake light illuminated.
The brake light problem has been occurring, when in motion, stationary, highway and city street. Always verify all light bulb sizes, bulb voltage usage and bulb wattage before applying any information found here to your 2010 Chevrolet Malibu. I cannot find any positive fix to the problem yet and see many people spent hundreds to thousands at dealerships only to find the problem not fixed. My brake lights are on, while my foot is off of the brake pedal. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 Chevrolet , 1-800-762-2737 Pontiac , 1-800-553-6000 Saturn. I would try and apply the break and the brake lights would go off. While driving various speeds, the brake lights remained illuminated.
The failure recurred on numerous occasions. Basically the brake lights work in reverse order. By August of 2015 I noticed that the brake lights was staying on while I was driving on the highway at high speed. Now brake lights do not come on at all unless you push brake all the way to the floor. While operating the vehicle, the esc and traction control sensors illuminated and the cruise control failed to operate. The dash lights would come on and off.
Either accelerating or coasting ect. I had to pay 600. I do not feel safe driving the vehicle especially with my family in it as the brake lights are not giving other drivers around me the appropriate indication of what my vehicles intentions are. They asked me to press the pedal - no lights. The recall began on August 18, 2014. They stay on as if I am always applying the brakes.
A case has been opened with the manufacturer. Not only will the lights on your Malibu be brighter, you decrease the likelihood you will need to change any of the bulbs again in the near future. I called Chevrolet and after being on hold for 40 minutes I was told to take it back to the dealer. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that an electrical connector was faulty. They are worth the initial higher cost to save you money during the length of time you own your vehicle, they are brighter during day and night use and simply look better all around. They claimed to have repeated the recall and handed back the keys.
More documents available upon request. Any ideas on what would cause this? While driving at an unknown speed, the rear brake lights remained illuminated. I had paid for them to fix it and I left there thinking everything was now fixed. The contact stated that the failure was intermittent. The manufacturer was not notified. There is some kind of electric problem going on.
The failure mileage was approximately 195,141. My concern is that gm's fix might be flawed as the recall condition recurred on my vehicle after the designated fix was performed at the gm dealership, causing risk to us and other vehicle owners. This week, the dealership replaced brake parts to fix the esc problem, but the brake light issue continues. If I take it in when the problem isn't there then I look like a fool so. It does not appear that this model of vehicle requires any sort of adjustment for the brake light switch, though some vehicles do. While driving various speeds, the contact depressed the brake pedal and the brake lights failed to illuminate.
The ''Traction Control'' switch also stops functioning at this point. Chevrolet dealership said they test drove it and no lights and or messages came on so they could not fix it. I have had this problem before and it caused my brake lights to illuminate when not depressed and go off when the brakes were pressed. It caused my car to stall, then the engine died in the middle of the road with traffic approaching behind me. The failure mileage was approximately 129,642. Customers should not be responsible for repair of a known issue that gm only put a temporary fix on but never solved the entire problem. The vehicle was not inspected nor diagnosed, but the dealer was notified.
I have a suspicion this is a recurring issue on a previous recall 14v252000 after seeing some recent complaints from those whom have had the issue fixed the first time. The approximate failure mileage was 24,000. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. If any or all the matrix of diodes is wired in parallel, sometimes constant voltage is used across the matix to assure proper current, which would not be possible with constant current due to variations in individual diodes in the matrix. In all I have spent over 900. The contact stated that the traction control light kept illuminating and the brake lights remained illuminated when the brakes had not been applied. The failure mileage was 65,000.
