Hello, thanks for writing in about your Chevrolet Malibu. If they did not give you the trouble code that is stored then you are going to need to have the system tested to see if the code can be diagnosed and fixed. Have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, scan and diagnose the stored codes firsthand. The issue can then be addressed once the problem has been pinpointed.
