It was then determined that the tech found the wiper transmission link bar was broken. The vehicle was not repaired. The electrical randomly malfunctions sometimes the interior and exterior lights won't work and they randomly come on or go off while driving. The hvac system still runs with the last settings it had. The failure and current mileage was 33,000.
My wife has had the same problem with this vehicle. Now it is back to just not turning on randomly. We have tried various light blubs but that didn't fix the issue. Please investigate this and let me know what the outcome is!! I started the vehicle and tried to put it in drive but it wouldn't work and I fixed the problem and upon arriving at my destination the vehicle went into park but continued to move I had to use the emergency brake to stop it. My dealer reset the computer March and it was fine but now has started again. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where the technician informed that the front brakes needed to be replaced.
I have also found online in chevy forums, this seems to be a problem for many people that own Chevrolet Malibus. They should be able to figure out if the component needs to be replaced or if there is a short or some other problem with your Equinox. Electrical components such as your map light, radio, heated seats, high beams, power windows all have fuses and if they suddenly stop working, chances are you have a fuse that has blown out. Some Chevrolets have multiple interior fuse boxes including in the trunk - the video above will show you where the interior fuse box of your 2010 Malibu is located. There are also 2 fuse centers inside both of the front doors.
While driving various speeds in the rain, the windshield wipers failed to function. I was traveling at 65 miles per hour on the highway. Poor visibility can cause accidents. While driving various speeds in the rain, the windshield wipers failed to function. The problem was the wire that plugs into the light was melted. The approximate failure mileage was 37,100. The contact stated that the vehicle trunk was flooded with rain water.
They can be purchased at any parts store. I have also submitted previous occurrences of this on this website under 10735008, 10992948, and 10995266. I'm lucky to be alive. I was not around any trucks or overpasses. The windshield wipers broke and after replacing and fixing the part they broke again while I was driving down a crowded highway in the pouring rain. There will be a large orange 40 amp fuse in the next row.
The approximate failure mileage was 158,000. In addition, the contact stated that while driving at an unknown speed, the brake system warning light illuminated. After researching the chevy forum website I realized this is a common problem on chevy Malibu¿s of various years and a major safety issue! If your box does not have the fuse map on the inside of the lid, face the box from the driver's side of the car with the windshield at your right. This is very similar to recall 13v567000 Chevrolet 13380 that applied to 2014 model Chevrolets. The manufacturer advised that the failure was caused by ordinary wear and tear. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired.
The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the wiper transmission needed to be replaced. The dealer was not called. The contact stated that the glass in the sunroof of the vehicle blewout and crumbled. The motor blower for the heating and cooling will also randomly stop working. It's been a couple of weeks since I fixed it and so far so good.
There is only two obvious reasons why the motor should fail again. Using the round knob, open this box and remove the cover. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. My husband has a heart condition and I am very afraid taking him to his appointments. The prior owner stated they had taken the car in to have the light repaired at least 6 times in since 2009.
The contact stated nothing hit the glass prior to the glass shattering. Thanks for you consideration in this matter. The first time I almost got rear ended. April 11, 2019 I replaced the bulb. Second occurance was Sept 2014 and occured on expressway going 70mph. If you're sitting in the driver's seat with your feet on the pedals, the fusebox is above and to the left of your foot, under the dash, attached to the firewall.
