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.

Key fob malfunction


The fab key it self may be bad at the unlock switch it self and the fab key needs to be replaced. You can try to reset the fab lock if you like and see if that addresses the issue. 
Important 
Once the Keyless entry receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter erases all previous transmitter programming information. You must then program all of the transmitters. 

Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If you program multiple receivers simultaneously, the same transmitter could possibly be programmed to more than 1 remote control door lock receiver.

Perform the following steps:
Sit in the vehicle driver's seat. (actually it’s much err from the front pass seat) 
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder. 
Close all of the vehicle's doors. 
Remove the MALL PGM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Electronic Diagnosis in Body and Chassis. 
Turn the ignition lock cylinder to the ACC position. 
Turn the ignition lock cylinder OFF, then back to ACC within 1 second. 
Open and then close any vehicle door. You will hear a chime when the remote control door lock receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode. If you do not hear a chime, start again at step 1.

Important 
After 7 seconds, you may hear a chime confirming successful synchronization. After approximately 14 seconds, you will hear a chime confirming successful programming.

Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds. 
Repeat step 8 in order to program each additional transmitter. 
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder. 
Install the MALL PGM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Electrical Diagnosis in Body and Chassis. 
Validate that all the transmitters that were programmed operate properly. Refer to Keyless Entry System Operation

Good luck and hope this helps. If you have problems you can try asking the service department at the dealer where you bought the car or where you have the car serviced. Simple things like this most of the time will not cost much and may even be free of charge if you have a good relationship with them.
Good luck and hope this helps.
