Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
No, I think he has the same problem I do. I have a stock 99 malibu...no real theft system. Usually after it rains or gets cold, a "theft system" light comes on in my dash. I can be driving, and the light will come on. If I turn the car off, I cannot restart the vehicle till about 20 minutes have passed and the light finally goes off. Sometimes this light comes on when I try to start the car in the morning. I put the key in the ignition, and the car will not start for 20 minutes till the darn theft system light goes off. From what I gathered, the theft system issue has something to do with a "passlock II" defect. I have no idea what this is, all I know is that I can't get a mechanic to listen to me, because the issue never repeats itself when I go to a garage. It gets a little annoying, but I've learned to deal with it.

It sounds like the computer chip in the key is bad. They get damaged really easy and that will cause the fuel pump to stop. If the "Theft" light is flashing continuously when you try to start it, that is the problem. You should be able to get a new key from the dealer or off ebay, and have it programmed. Should be under $100.

Send me your key, I will send you a package with instructions and where to solder the part I send you back with your key. I will need the key with the pill in it.
