Dealer gave me a shaved key works on starting ignition not on door lock the other three keys work on everything car doesn't have engine immoboliser removed the remote keyless entry fobs what is


Many times the dealer gives you a valet key made to give to the vet to park your car, these keys work even though the theft deterant system is active, but they will only work for short periods untill the theft system activates and imobolizes the vehicle. The system is reset when the valet brings your vehicle and you insert your normal (chiped) key.

Keyless entry did not work


If I am not mistaken, this is a safety feature. You manually locked the doors which told the computer you could possibly be in danger and someone on the outside has your key. After you unlocked and started the vehicle it reset the mode and that is why it works now without a problem. You can test this by manually locking it again and trying the keyless entry. If it does not work, then unlock and start the vehicle and try again. If it does work have the dealer check it out as it could be the receiver for the keyless system.

Hatch won't open on 2004 Malibu Maxx


Try pushing the trunk release and turning the key in the lock at the same time.
It sounds like the electric lock has not released for what ever reason.
You should hear the trunk release relay when you push the remote.

Doors automatically lock and unlock


It sounds like a keyless entry system. You may be sitting on an extra set of keys or if you have a keyless transmitter on your keychain that has loose batteries. Leave that keyless transmitter home and use you key to open the door. See if the problem goes away.
