Customer: yes
JA: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: just looking at cables from the battery but they are good . could it be a loose cable going to the starter?

Has the battery been replaced? If using a jump start helps every time that would point toward a battery issue. Let me know, thanks.

I did have the battery checked and it was good and before I do jump it the lights are on bright everything has full power.

If jumping it every time helps then I'd still expect battery. Have a different place test the battery and let me know. Thanks.
