There is no reset except to leave the key in the ignition turned on for 10 minutes, if that does not reset it you need the dealer to inspect the problem.

SOURCE: the radio for my 2007 chevy malibu is locked

if you hold the 1 and 4 presets and you get 3 lines like this - - - then that meens there is no code stored so the problem is not in your theftlock but the radio or power to it.

Possible starter problem or power supply to it. You can try tapping on the starter with a blunt object ( tire iron etc ) while holding the key in the crank position. If the vehicle starts, the starter will need replacement

These vehicles are known for faulty antitheft systems. When they start to fail, the car turns off the fuel injectors as a theft deterrent. Next time it stalls, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, this link will help you.

Chevy Malibu LS (V6-3.1 L) won't start or starts up and IMMEDIATELY dies, how can I diagnose the problem?


Your car starts and dies due to the failing antitheft system. Your vehicle is not receiving the "fuel enable" signal that it needs to keep running. So the injectors get turned to off to prevent theft. You will need to diagnose which part of the antitheft system is failing. Or bypass the entire security system. This link will help you understand the problem, and depending on the year of your vehicle, possibly a good bypass solution.

Do you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT? Disconnecting your battery can trigger your antitheft system.

Here is a link about the security.

My car won't start, every time it gets cold it does this???? the lights turn on but it doesn't turn over, last year I the fuse box went out because all the electronics in my car where using too...


One reason GM vehicles dont start, especially when the weather changes isdue tofaulty antitheft systems. Next time this happens, look for a light on the dash that says secury or antitheft. Picture might look like a car with a padlock thru the window, If you see any of these lights, that will explain why it doesnt start.

I Have a 2006 pontiac G6 gt with the 3500 engine, The battery was removed positive side first and now after it was replaced the fuel pump isn't working, everything else seems fine but the pump...


You can't fix it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzzkill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. Sorry.

I changed the a/c filter and have been trying to reset the light which says a/c filter change required but it won't reset. Can't understand why because I press reset as soon as it comes up...


All those lights etc on the right side of your dash
are not tied to anything

You don't have to change anything
or do anything. Oil,Cabin Filter etc

THEY ARE JUST GADGETS

Status does cycle
You press Reset & hold

When it says to hold, you
quickly press & hold Reset again

You can just forget all that

Doesn't do anything

You don't sit in your car &
call it up with the status button
& watch it anyway.


Brake Fluid-every 2 years --Flush/All Vehicles
Spark Plugs -- every 3 years,not over 60,000 miles
Fuel Filter --every 3 years
Air Filter --every 3 years
Cabin Filter --every 3 years
Trans & Power Steering--3 years

Battery saver light is on and car won't start


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
