2001 Chevrolet Malibu Repair Question
How to change battery in car w remote starter
does not sound like the remote is an issue.
why did you replace it??
battery was dead, old, wouldn't hold a charge so we got a new one to try
the starter could be engaging because of the start motor itself.
So how can I at least get that negative terminal attached with out getting a shock? Its a side mount battery and requires a socket to get it screwed in.
not until the issue with the starter is resolved.
you can try to find the fuse for the remote and remove it to see if that is the issue but i doubt it.
Is there some way I can test the starter myself or do I have to get it towed to a shop?
get it towed to a shop that is equipped to do this type of repair.
That's not what I wanted to hear, but thank you!
