Look at the socket itself. Wires could be burnt or even inside socket corroded or burnt. The light bulb socket assembly cost around $40. It is best to change it. Pretty much self explanatory. You can wiggle the bulb and sometimes it woill work for awhile but it is a pain to keep messing with it so I suggest replacement
Brake linings worn? Wheel bearing?
replace rotors, sounds like they are warped. if you can feel the pulsation in brake pedal they could be warped..
The newest Chevy Malibu on the market is the Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Sedan. It is modern, luxious, up to date, and have everything that you could possibly want in a new car.
It could have 4, 6 or 8 cylinders.
It could be the brake light switch (the switch that activates the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal) has gone bad
Could be a brake issue, a bearing issue, a tie rod issue, a CV joint issue. If you are not mechanical yourself, you should take it to a qualified mechanic to have it diagnosed. Any of these left unaddressed can cause more serious issue, some quite unsafe, especially in a Chevy Malibu.
The light should be controlled by a switch operated by the emergency brake handle. The switch could be out of adjustment or could be bad.
could very well be brake switch on back of brake pedal. it is located at the top back off pedal, or it could be out of adjustment. check and see if power to back lamps, if not check brake switch.
The Chevy Malibu can get between 17 and 22 miles per gallon of gas on the road. It could even get to 26 to 33 miles per galon if you are in a highway.
If your pressing your brake when shifting it could be the neutral and park sensor. Or the linkage. If its the linkage you might have problems with your transmission slipping and shifting by its self or into certain positions easyly than others.
it could be a serpentine belt or accessory belt.
