Malibu Maxx 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,965 miles
: the contact stated while driving 70 mph, the headlights and interior lights went out. The contact had to hold the headlight switch up all the way to keep the lights illuminated. Later, when the vehicle was parked, the tail lights stayed illuminated once the vehicle was shut off, and the battery had to be disconnected to shut the tail lights off. The vehicle was not seen by a dealer.
