    think were at cross purposes here ,one steering lock/ignition unit .all cars are the same here you have key /steering lock /and on the end the electrical switch thats turned by the key/barrel end of ....their is a square/oblong drive out of end of barrel that connects with the electrical switch .so how can you start it with no key?? or have you hot wired it

    do you mean that you can turn barrel without turning the key,like some older american cars ,just push the key in,then turn the outer casing.Their is no earth on the back of the ignition switch,normally four wires ,permanent 12v ,feed for ignition ,feed for starter motor and aux feed ,fro radio ect

1997 chevy malibu anti theft system how do I fix this problem The car won't start I believe the car is in the anti theft mode


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
