Hello, It sounds as if the theft deterrent system is tripped. Look at the key is it worn bad? If so get a new one made at the dealer. To do a key test isert the key, turn to start and release if theft light comes on leave key alone in the on position ten minutes after you try to start never turn off after you yurn to start it puts it in a certain mode, and do not bother it for about 12 minutes. When you come back to car turn switch off then turn to start and it should start thank you.Please rate this answer, thank you.

1998Chevy malibu won't start changed fuel filter


watch the lights on your dash.. if all the lights except the theft system go off then it has to do with your ignition.. they are a couple hundred to have installed here in Bama.. I took my dash apart and when I have a lot of problems I leave it open some so I can wiggle the wires on the bottom side of the ignition.. a cheaper thing would be call the chevy dealer and have them make you a new key from your vin.. and keep it weight free.. after they have some wear on them they do not work as well.. they fit kind of like a puzzle piece in the ignition and on one of the peaks on the key when it hits a certain place in the ignition switch it activates the " I OWN THIS CAR, SO CRANK" mode.. In my personal opinion they should have a recall on the dang things because the buyers are getting ripped off having to replace the ****.. For some reason though, a lot of the OEM wiring connections on GM's are faulty.. I still love my chevy though! Hope this helps!

1998 chevy malibu stopped running while i drove it. Wouldnt start back, dont think it is fuel pump what else could it be


Most common "won't start" problems are fuel and ignition. Check for spark to the plugs and check fuel pressure. Let me know what you find. There are too many other things to list until we know if it's a fuel or spark issue.

How do i turn off the running lights in a 1998 chevy malibu


one solution that might work is to slightly apply the e brake. then start the car. they might remain off.
if the brake is set up with lots of play in the cable you can get away with this without issues.

Wiring Diagram 1998 Chevy S-10 starter replacement


The starter has one large cable from the battery positive, and a wire that goes to the solenoid (Part of the starter) that becomes hot when the key ignition is turned to start. This also passes through the neutral safety switch. (So it wont start in gear) Not sure if this is what you need, a little vague.

How do you replace the starter in 1998 chevy malibu


The starter is very simple to replace, 1st always disconnect the battery, the wires at the starter are hot with 12 volts always present, remove the 2 attaching bolts for the starter to the engine block, then remove the wiring, one heavy cable and a bunch of smaller wires, one of those goes to the starter solenoid, mark it, the others are what are called fuse links and provide power to the rest of the car, clean up everything and then re-install in reverse order.
