2005 Chevy Malibu Anti-theft system indicator light

I am driving my Aunt to/from Dr. appts due to illness. Every time I set the security/anti-theft system stays on for about 10 seconds. After that period, it will then flash every 10 seconds. Should this light continue to flash for extended periods? Unfortunately, she lost her owners manual, and I will need to figure out how to order one.

thanks

    I have this same issue except my car will not start. You will have to turn the key to the on position for 10 mins until the theft system light turns off. Once the theft system light stops flashing then attempt to start the car. I am trying to find a solution to fixing the problem I am having with the theft system. My car will only start about 3/4 of the time without the theft system turning on

    i have an 05 malibu classic and it only cranks when it wants to if the anti theft light is on it will not crank i have taken my negative battery cable off to try to reset the computer and that works sometimes, there has been two times that after 15 it will not crank i just let it sit and 2-3 hours go back and it will crank right up no waiting. twice i have had the anti theft light come on while driving down the road and if i dont pull over and kill the car it will go dead in the middle of the highway

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!!!

Car starts but cuts right back off chevy malibu 05 i put gas in it


may be anti- theft system, best thing to do first is scan computer and see if any codes are stored, then if no codes then check fuel preasure, ill bet there are codes about the theft system. those cars had problems with the ignition that hold the sensor for theft system, but then again could be fuel pump, so scan it first and then we"ll go from there good luck.

This is the anti-theft PASSLOCK system. You can purchase a paslock 2 bypass system that will bypass the anti-theft othewise you will have to wait the 10 minutes with the key on the ON position and turn over immediately when anti-theft light turns off

Anti-theft/security light on dash doesn't flash on 2005 avalanche


Several GM products, including the Chevrolet Impala and Malibu, the Oldsmobile Alero, the Pontiac Grand Prix, and Saturn Ion, have issues with the Security light coming on. This is many times an indication of a failing Body Control Module (BCM). Initially, the Security light will come on then go off, progressing to a constant on light, before the car will refuse to start. Other symptoms may include erratic action of electronics, a clicking sound coming from the glove box, and the air conditioning failing to blow cold air. I recommend a shop that specializes in the electronic systems of vehicles to diagnosis and make the necessary repairs. They should keep the car until they replicate the symptoms described. A new BCM from GM should cost about $230; plan on another $200 for them to diagnose the problem, replace the unit, and program the new unit. The dealers quote between $700 and $1,100 for the same repair. My experience and the experiences I have read on the internet, indicate the new BCM should last only about a year.
