Car dies when I use my remote start and press the lock or unlock button


This is most likely caused by the car's anti-theft system. Most newer cards require a separate module to be installed to override the anti-theft system while the remote start is in use. Otherwise, when the anti-theft system detects an anomaly, it will immobilize the vehicle.
DEI makes a 556H module for this purpose. The link shows the instrall manual for this device.

Replaced the fuel pump. the car starts, but won't stay running


The anti-theft system will keep the car from being driven, so I would start there. You may need to reset the anti-theft or check the ignition key for problems.

Chevy Malibu LS (V6-3.1 L) won't start or starts up and IMMEDIATELY dies, how can I diagnose the problem?


Your car starts and dies due to the failing antitheft system. Your vehicle is not receiving the "fuel enable" signal that it needs to keep running. So the injectors get turned to off to prevent theft. You will need to diagnose which part of the antitheft system is failing. Or bypass the entire security system. This link will help you understand the problem, and depending on the year of your vehicle, possibly a good bypass solution.

I have a 1999 sunfire gt and it starts runs for a second and dies,my anti theft light on my dash is not blinking it just stays on,does anybody know a way to bypass the anti theft so that my car will r


Yes, unfortunately this is very common on GM vehicles. Go to this link for everything you need. Rule of thumb is this. If the light is flashing, the problem will be In the ignition or the smart transponder key. If the light is solid, the problem is in the TDM (theft deterrent module). This is the main computer for the theft system. There is a full bypass method on this link listed under PERMANENT FIX. This is what you will need. It will bypass every aspect of the system 100%.

1998 buick skylark starts runs for a second then dies and wont restart


You could be experiencing a anti-theft issue. Turn your kee to the run position for about 10 minutes until the theft light quits blinking, turn the key off , and try it then.

Hi I own A 98 Chevy Malibu, my ignition locked n i had to put a new ignition switch in, well now my cars tellin me Something Theft Service. Im wonder what I need to do? Iv unhooked battery for hours ect...


You need to reset the theft system. To do this, try to start it. It should start and die. Then after it dies and the theft light is flashing, leave the key on for 10 minutes. After 10 min, the theft light should go out. After the theft light goes out, turn off the key. Count to 5, then restart it. Then it should work.

THEFT SYSTEM WONT START


If the switch is broken,it will not start and stay running,just start and quit everytime you try.There is a device in the switch that if broken the E.C.M(computer)will not pick up a signal from it.You will need to have it repaired before it will run again.
