    it ended up being the theft system.. I believe it shuts off the fuel and stops injecting. It happened when i installed a new battery and saw that the gas guage would fall to empty after about 15 cranks. Solution: put key in ignition and set it to the ON position for about 10min, or until the THEFT SYSTEM sensor light stops flashing.. Then your good to go...

My 2002 malibu ls wont start it will turn over but wont fire my check engine light is on but that in no other lights on no window no power locks nothen how do i fix it


If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, check fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Go from there.
We can also check circuits for power windows.

My 2008 chev malibu wont start the battery is new, all the electric syst works( radio, windows, dash), but eont crank at all, the uel pump sounds like its working, all the fuses are tested and relays too,...


Could be the neutral safety switch or the key switch, or the starter.
You might try cranking it in neutral instead of park.
The starter circuit would need to be tested from the starter back to the key switch if it has no voltage with the key in the start position.

have scanned if light is on. it sounds like a bad crank sensor. it controls the timing. either that or you may have a bad ignition switch!! if no power from switch, then no start.

2002 malibu wont start


check for a bad crank sensor for this controls the timing of crank shaft. and sends info to pcm. it will cause no spark or pulse at injectors.the engine may start but cut out in a few minutes or seconds, of operation. have the car scanned for the problem code, if no scanner, any auto parts store will scan for free. good luck !!

Change starter on 97 chev malibu


Check and load test battery. If good, use a volt meter across both terminals.. when.cranking, volts should not drop below 9.5. If it does, replace starter. No valid starter test can be done unless battery has been proven to be good.

2002 chevy malibu won't start


Does the starter make any noise or click when you turn the key to start? If it does not, chk. battery could be bad, and battery cables could be loose or corroded. If there good and clean and battery is good try tapping starter see if it will turn and start if it does or still clicks starter bad. It could be ignition switch if it does nothing at all, but if it clicks most likely its starter.
