SOURCE: i can't disable my anti theft device on my chevy

This usually works.Lock the doors with the remote.Press lock twice sounding the alarm.Then press the unlock button twice.Your car should start now.If that doesnt work try this,Lock the car again with the remote once.Go over to the passenger side door and use the key to unlock the door then press in the door unlock all doors.Hopefully by now it worked.Now if none of these work your security probably malfunctioned and theres only two things that will work,One is disconnecting the battery for 5 mins then reconnecting.unlock doors.the start.If that doesnt work you'll have to take it to the dealer to get the security reset or replaced.The steps I have wrot you are the diagnostics to reset it.I hope these work for you and good luck.See ya had have a great day..

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Malibu Anti-theft system indicator light

I just had this to happen to me - here's what you do - when it will not crank - turn your key over to ACC and let it stay on here for 15 minutes, the THEFT SYSTEM light will stop flashing. Turn your key back to OFF then turn it over as normal when starting and it will start right back up! Found it out from an auto store! One lady paid over $700 and then found this out!!!

Folllow these steps:
turn ignition to "ON" (dont start the car)
leave it open for 10 minutes.
Turn ignition to "OFF" wait two seconds and turn it back to "ON"
leave it open for 10 minutes.
Turn ignition to "OFF" wait two seconds and turn it back to "ON"
leave it ope for 10 minutes.

Turn it on, start the car normally and have a safe trip. Your system has just relearnt the security passkey.
Good luck.

With the car RUNNING cut the yellow wire to the ignition switch from the group of three wires.
Make sure the car is RUNNING when the wire is cut.
Tape the ends and thats it.....the car will start first time from now on....as long as you don't mind not having anti theft.

2006 chevy malibu wont start unless i hit the gas pedal


it will be a good idea to clean injector. It's a good thinking to clean throttle body......never forget for good combustion you need AIR,good FUEL,and good spark
when you need to crack up the throttle plate to start means throttle body dirty and IAC valve dirty or not working properly
hope it helps

First check the engine breather pipes for deterioration before you start changing electrical components as a collapsed or perished pipe will cause these symptoms

Anti theft has locked out the fuel can i run 12 volts into fuel pump to bypass anti theft


No, that won't work. The antitheft system shuts down the injectors not the fuel pump. You can bypass it with some resistors from radio shack but the easiest way to fix it is to replace the ignition lock cylinder. This is usually what is wrong.

My 98 Chevy Malibu v6 3.1 liter engine high idling


You probably have a large vacuum leak. With the engine running, listen under the hood for a hissing sound. Check all of the rubber lines running from the intake.

Just bought a chevy malibu 2009 wont start


Thats a BIG only problem. Did you ever hear it run?? Do you have the correct key? I would have a shop look at it, maybe the engines fried ,and that why you dont buy cars at an auction unless you know what you are doing.

Slightly adjusting the timing chain on a 98 Chevy malibu 2.4, 4 cylinder engine. The timing is off.


Your playing with fire to try to adjust something thats not designed to be adjusted even the hi dollar fancy racing teams are very careful going any from the factory specs as they have dynos and scopes and way more money to spend than me and you. No stock engine being used as a daily driver should be changed unless it's back to standard. Your stepping into deep **** unless you have deep pockets to deal withblown mototers and other bad stories. I know them and I can write them
