Ive done this more times than I can count. Put your key in the ignition. Turn it to the accesories position,2clicks.Do not start engine. Let it sit that way for about 9 minutesin the accesorie position or until the theft system kight goes off.. Watch to see when the theft system light goes off. takes about 9 and a halfminutes. Maybe a bit longer, but it takes mine 9 and a half minutes. Once thetheft system light goes off goes off, turn the key back and turn off the car. THEN turn the car on like you usually do. The theft lite should be off. This is also in the manual. Good luck. PS. It may happen again , asmine does, but the same procedure, if it works once,will work again. Good luck.

Try this before you go any further. Remove the battery cable for atleast five minutes, reinstall battery cable, try to start the vehicle, it should fire for about a second, when it does DO NOT turn the key to the off position, leave the ignition in the run position for five to twenty minutes, the security light should either go off or stay on, not flashing. Try starting. If this doesn't work contact a GM dealer and they can walk you through the reset procedure. Thanks and good luick with your repair.

How do I override the anti theft on a 2001 chevy malibu


Try this. Lock and then unlock the drivers door with the key. That should reset the antitheft module. If it doesn't , you can get an override kit from a dealer. Simply unplugging the module won't accomplish anything.

Turns over won't start, anti-theft system malibu 2002


your problem is the ((body control module)) , and its location is behind the glove box. to make sure this is your bad part you have to disconect the negative battery and then unplug the ((bcm)) connectors and push them back in again .. conect the battery aagain and start your car,, if it happens again in the near future you are gonna have to change the bcm module and programm it by the dealer

first make sure the battery is fully charged , then do the following:
key in the ignition but do not crank the motor, just leave it at the
ignition mode for ten minutes ,then turn it off POSITION for 5 seconds then REPEAT again 2 more times. at the 3 rd time youre gonna notice the ANTI THEFT light on dash to blink. when doing the last step , remove key , inserted again and turn on motor , good luck , AJ

Is the Security light flashing??? If so, the security system (passlock II) is ******** off the fuel because the car thinks it is being stolen. If the security light is flashing, leave the key in the "on" position for about 10 minutes and it will stop flashing. Then turn the car off and try to start like you normally would.
