I have a 2007 chevrolet malibu. I have been having trouble for a while with having to turn the key a few times before it would crank until it finally quit cranking at all. I replaced the ignition switch and that didn't fix it. Then I replaced the ignition lock cylinder and done the reset. The dashlights come on but it still won't turn over or crank. I have also tested the starter and it is good. Do you have any suggestions for what I need to try next?

  • When you try to crank the engine, do you hear the starter relay "click"?

Assuming the starter is good, check the battery and starter connections. Then check that the engines earth strap has a good contact and is tight.
