It sounds like you are correctly entering the programming mode for the transmitters but from my research the 2001 Impala and the 2000 Malibu transmitters are different. They do look the same and both have 4 buttons but the part numbers on the back are not the same. This could indicate that they are using different circuitry and therefor are not interchangeable.

My 2001 dodge ram key fob was stolen. can i reprogram?


Try this....
ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system. If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work. You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first remote for you.


1. Turn ignition to run position (as far as you can go without starting engine).
2. Using any Working remote, press the UNLOCK button for 4 to 10 seconds.
3. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK buton and press
the PANIC button for 1 second and release both buttons at the same time. A chime will
sound within 3 seconds to indicate that the vehicle has entered remote programming
mode.
4. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press any button on all remotes to be programmed
including previously programmed remotes. A chime will sound after each remote is
programmed.
5. Turn ignition to OFF and remove key.
6. Test all remotes.
