Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
Engine turns over but will not start i do not hear fuel pump engaging.I wanted to know if there was another way to reset computer if keys don't work. my fuel pump relay is good and first key didn't work will try second key.
Can try doing a relearn process, it is pretty simple and will take 30 minutes, if it'll work for you at all since your problem doesn't sound like a computer issue.
30-Minute Learn Procedure
1. Turn on the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start.
3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF.
4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds.
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes.
The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK.
Turn the Ignition Switch OFF.
The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on
the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition
OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code
7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100
Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.
Good luck and hope this help's. keep me posted if you need other ways to disable the passive lock system

It sounds like the pump is bad, you can try to see if you can get to the wires from under have someone turn key see if pump has its second of power but if the inertia has power then the pump should as well and if you have no fuel pressure then its time to check the pump.

This is still a new car try not to do anything to void warranty. I know if you could get to run most likely would drive it to dealer. When your spraying the choke cleaner it is going directly into the intake to the piston area, fuel from the tank must go through the injectors which are electrically controlled, before making it to the pistons. Due you have power to the injectors when motoring the engine over. Remember you must have a very strong battery on todays new cars when attempting start it has to turn quickly. Check wiring diagram to see where injector harness power feed comes from and follow back. I hope this helps God Bless

sounds alot the the pcm it controls the fuel pump and ign system but the anti theft would keep it from starting because the key has a transponder in it programmed for that vehicle and that would kill all ign if triggered
