Sometimes the new fuel pump goes bad, it does happen, if you disconnect the fuel line @ engine and hold it in a can or bottle, have an assistant crank engine, but do not start it, if you have gas coming out, your pump is working, careful , it will come out fast !!!!!!!!!!!! have a rag ready. now you can move on to find the real problem.

SOURCE: Replaced stock bcm with used.

A used body control can be used in a vehicle other than the vehicle it was installed in. the body control module when first installed is programmed with the vehicle vin number. the vin number can not be changed was it was written to the BCM. the oprions can be always change in the BCM but not the VIN number. basically the used bcm you have installed has the vin number from the vehicle was installed in, now the vin number in the used BCM doesnt match all the other control modules

Have you ever put in the gasoline tank any injector cleaner yet because the cleaner will unclog the injectors so full amounts of gasoline can get into the piston chambers the right amounts so try putting injector cleaner into your gas tank. When you put this into the gas tank to remember that it takes time for the cleaner to get to the injectors so you might have to keep trying to start the vehicle many times for the cleaner to unclog the injectors. This will not hurt your vehicle at all so go try this.

SOURCE: 1997 chevy malibu anti theft system how do I fix

The late-90's GM Passlock system (e.g. 1997 Malibu, Regal, Impala, etc.) has a part around the ignition tumbler that goes bad and no longer reliably detects the valid key. In that situation, the "Theft System" light will slowly flash and the carburetor is cut off so the engine won't start. The time-out on the system is 10 minutes - you don't have to do anything, you don't have to disconnect the battery, the key can be out of the ignition -- it's just a time delay. After 10 minutes, the light goes out and you can try again (but if the key is again not detected, the light will start flashing again and you have to wait another 10 minutes)
Someone else, who had this problem, told me to remove all other keys from my keyring. The weight of the other keys pulls on the ignition key causing the key to be unreadable. It has been 7 weeks since I have been doing this and have not had a problem

I have a 2001 Malibu and my car won't start. I


Mine just had these same symptoms, and it was because the fuel pump had died, and I had to replace it. But first, check the fuse panel to see if maybe there's a dedicated fuse for the fuel pump. If so, it may e as easy and inexpensive as replacing that. I wish you luck! I had no transportation for three weeks before I could get it fixed!

My 03 POS Malibu has had $4,000 in repairs the last few years. Now it won't start after driving! Have to wait an hour or so.


Are there any lights on the dash when this happens? Look for a light that says security or antitheft. If you see this, go to this link. That would explain the symptoms

2001 chevy malibu. I filled up with gas this morning and didn't get very far and it died. Won't start back up. What could it be?


Hello! I'm not so certain that the filling of the tank and the fact that the engine died and won't start are related...Lets get a little background...Has the car been running poorly; Or was everything in tip top shape, and after filling the tank it quit? Is the Check Engine Light on now? Any idea how many gallons you pumped in; And the octane you used? And lastly, was it an often used gas station?

My malkbu classic won't start. The guy at the grage says its a key sensor. I believe I had this replaced around 2 years ago. Did I miss a recall, or how do I get info regarding a recall?


call the chevy dealership, and ask them if there has been any recalls in the past for your malibu. good-day! or if no good response, ask for the chevy recall center!

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1 Liter. I was driving it last night, and I parked it, everything was fine. 15 minutes later I had to go somewhere, went to fire her up, and it wouldn't start. It's...


Assuming there's enough fuel in the tank - If the fuel filter is extremely clogged - try starting with the fuel cap off so it won't have work against the vacuum in the fuel tank. Fuel caps have breather holes which can be clogged also. The holes release the vacuum in the tank slowly. If it starts ok then, the problem sits in fuel supply - for example the fuel filter.

Smell the exhaust pipe - if it smells strongly like petrol, most likely it's the ignition system requiring service. (sparkplugs, distributer, sparklines)
