Your chipped key is not making a good connection to your factory installed anti-theft device. Lightly grease both sides of car key with electric bulb grease and work it into key ignition. Over time the key wears down, contacts in ignition switch become worn and corroded. Grease makes better contact...chipped key is able to send signal to factory anti-theft device which unlocks all systems required to start you engine. Make sure the key you are using is a chipped key for your car; not a un-chipped cut key from the key cutting machine. It will work on locks, but only a chipped key for your car will deactivate your anti-thief and you get power to your engine and systems to get it started.
Turn key to on but with the engine off, push down on the break hold it there squeeze the button on the gear shift then try to turn the key at the same time keep squeezing the gearshift stepping on the brake and turning the key to the right until the car comes on
It's possible that you will need assistance from the manufacturer of the Anti Theft device. They may have tto reset the system, as an Anti theft device, any thing construed as 'tampering' with the car, or the device may cause it to shut down, and would need tech support from the manufacturer.
That would most likely be a key fab problem or your passlock system which is very common on gm vehicles. You can try reprogramming the key or get a spare key and program that one. I can give you instructions if you'd like. Another thing you can try if the anti-theft system is activated, is put key in ignition, turn to ON position for exactly 10 minutes, as soon as anti-theft light turns off, then immediately start the car. They also sell passlock bypass systems fairly cheap.
all general motors vehivles from 97-2005 contain an anti-theft system, called a passlock system. try this it will work on a malibu theft system. turn key on engine off for about 10 minutes,after 10 minutes turn key off. wait 15 seconds then try to start car. if it is the passlock system this will reset it.
