Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

I have a 2001 chevy malibu. It will not crank nor turn over. Its not the battery I just replaced it. The theft light does not stay on (it goes off when all the other light go off). I have tried turning the key to on for 10 mins then turning it off for 5 mins. I have tried turning the key to on for 10 mins then turning off for 5 secs. These 10 min and 5 min things dont work. I dont have the remote to unlock and lock the doors. Anybody have any other ideas. This has happen to me probably 5 times in the last 3 months. Help please????

I think i know the issue. I have had it happen to me it is your security system failing. Your car is on the list year make and model... I found a module that you can install yourself and it will bypass it allowing your car to start everytime.. Check it out and ask questions they are very helpful. Also for some reason if it does not work they will refund you %100 of your money.. this literally saved my car. Hope it helps

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu that wont start. All of the lights on the dash come on and when they settle.. only the battery and the check engine light are on. It has a full tank of gas and full oil and...


When you turn the key to the start position does the starter spin the engine ? The engine cranks no start ! Or nothing happens when you the key to start position ? no crank no start ? Is the anti-theft light lit on the instrument cluster (SECURITY) ? If the starter spins the engine does spin slow or normally ? Is there spark , fuel pressure ? Testing these thing's would be the place to start if the engine spins ! Videos on youtube showing how !

01 chevy malibu won't start, security light blinks but after leaving the switch in the on position for ten minutes it will start is there a permanent solution to this?


I have the same problem on my 2001 malibu. Do a google search for 2001 Malibu Passlock malfunction. You have to have the passlock system replaced, although I've seen many forums where people have had it replaced only to have it malfunction again because Chevy never made a new passlock that does not malfunction for older Malibus. Also, if you get a remote car starter I've heard this will disable the passlock therefore removing the issue of it malfunctioning so you would not have to worry about it not starting.

My 2001 chevy malibu will not start


Try this before you go any further. Remove the battery cable for atleast five minutes, reinstall battery cable, try to start the vehicle, it should fire for about a second, when it does DO NOT turn the key to the off position, leave the ignition in the run position for five to twenty minutes, the security light should either go off or stay on, not flashing. Try starting. If this doesn't work contact a GM dealer and they can walk you through the reset procedure. Thanks and good luick with your repair.

Dont know how to reset or bypass gm theft system car is not starting .It tries and quits.


this is one way to reset it :
first make sure the battery is fully charged , then do the following:
key in the ignition but do not crank the motor, just leave it at the
ignition mode for ten minutes ,then turn it off POSITION for 5 seconds then REPEAT again 2 more times. at the 3 rd time youre gonna notice the ANTI THEFT light on dash to blink. when doing the last step , remove key , inserted again and turn on motor , good luck , AJ

My 2001 chevy malibu ls v6cranks,starts up but right after,right after dies like somethings shutting it down. radio was locked from me disconnecting my battery without disconnecting the anti theft system....


Is the Security light flashing??? If so, the security system (passlock II) is ******** off the fuel because the car thinks it is being stolen. If the security light is flashing, leave the key in the "on" position for about 10 minutes and it will stop flashing. Then turn the car off and try to start like you normally would.

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!!!
