That Antitheft light is the Starter Kill. Replace the Wire that you cut and Check the Starter and Starter Solinoid.

2004 Malibu Maxx no crank /no start. How can I bypass the security and/or passlock system. No, the car isnot stolen. :-)


Pass lock diables fuel system not starter . Is the security light on ? car and padlock symbol ? Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop before you totally ruin it . Because there are no wires you can cut , jump , put in a resistor etc... There is no way to by pass this system .The vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) system functions are provided by the theft deterrent module (TDM).
When an ignition key is inserted into the ignition lock cylinder and the ignition is switched ON, the transponder embedded in the head of the key is energized by the exciter coils surrounding the ignition lock cylinder. The energized transponder transmits a signal that contains a unique value, which is received by the TDM. The theft deterrent control module then compares this value to a value stored in memory, learned key code. If the value is correct, the TDM sends a random generated number to the transponder. This is called a challenge. Both the transponder and the TDM perform a calculation on the challenge. If the calculations match, the TDM sends the fuel continue password via the serial data circuit to the powertrain control module (PCM). If either the transponders unique value or the calculation to the challenge is incorrect, the TDM will send the fuel disable password to the PCM via the serial data circuit.

MY CAR WONT CRANK ANYMORE 2002 MALIBU


Cutting the yellow wire and installing a toggle switch will not do anything , except make the vehicle not start at all ever again . That is the pass lock sensor signal input to the BCM . You have demonstrated your lack of Knowledge of these systems ,Take it to a qualified repair shop

2002 CHEVY MALIBU TURNOVER....BUT SOMETIMES WONT START


I just have one suggestion, after what all your mechanic already did. I would want to know the fuel pressure reading WHEN IT WON'T START. So you would need a fuel pressure gauge handy, for that time it won't start. Hook up the gauge and turn the key on- if at 59 psi, when the engine won't start, then you know the fuel pump and the relay sensor is not the problem. And so probably not a fuel problem, although you haven't checked the injector circuit, but likely that wouldn't exhibit a problem as you have.
So if not a fuel problem, check for spark when it won't start. Maybe the problem is in the ignition system. Buy a spark tester from a parts store, use it when the **** engine won't start- simple and easy check of your ignition system.

Car wont start. turns over but wont stay running . attempted to install a remote starter on my 03 malibu. the first module broke so i had to order a replacement, during which time i simply left the wires...


your cars antitheft system is trying to prevent the car from being stolen so it is shutting it offf after it starts. go back over step by step you installation instructions make sure the ring around the ignition that comes with the remote starter is taped into the exact loacation it needs to be, or the cars own anti theft system will not notice it and will try to shut car off. its an anti theft feature. if this doesn't wotk you will not be able to use this remote starter. i ran into the same problem finally got it to work poperly.

2002 malibu anti theft problem


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.

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.

No start / start/ anti theft light?


MAY BE YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE KEY, CHECK IF THE KEY HAS A PELLET IN IT, IF SO THE KEY IS BAD AND YOUR DEALER CAN REPLACE IT.
THE PELLET IS A RESISTOR FOR THE ANTITHEFT.
