Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu, we replaced the battery and tested it and it was good, the alternator is good, but when we go to start the car all we get is a click. It doesn't sputter or even try to start.
Have the starter pulled and tested for functionality. The contacts may be dirty, damaged, or loose. This can be checked outside of the car.

SOURCE: Car wont turn over
Sounds like you have a bad starter. To check this you can try taking a hammer to the starter and tap it while someone in the car turns the key. If it starts you know you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out

first check if fuel is getting into the throttle body...take the air cleaner off and have someone press the accelerator while you watch for fuel to squirt into the throat. if there is no fuel then look at fuel delivery problems. If you do have good fuel flow then take out a spark plug and examine it for fouling or possible flooding. If it isn't then proceed to check for a spark. put the spark plug into the spark plug wire but NOT in the engine. with gloves on and wire and YOU are away from moving engine parts and belts and away from the area where you removed to spark plug. Place the top part of the spark plug and make it contact a solid metal part that has a good contact to the chassis...to allow for a return path for the spark. you can hold the wire far from the spark plug to avoid a shock. have an associate start the truck and make sure its producing a nice white or blue spark....red sparks are weak and no sparks is of course ignition issues. hopefully this will help with moving on with troubleshooting. we would need more info to move on or spend a month listing all the possibilities. :-)

If your lumina has a Pass II key, it may well be the ignition lock cylinder on the steering column. The car key has a resistor staked on the sides of it which is read by the theft deterent module. The theft deterent module issues a command to the ignition relay and the fuel injectors when it reads a correct resistance from the key. If the lock cylinder is damage( broken wire) ect. the theft deterent module will not be able to read the key. Unfortunately, if you have a Lumina with a solid shroud around the steering column, the dealer will charge you $700-$1200 to replace the cylinder.
