Hi Kaitlin:
3 seconds is a brutally short time to have the engine run. That's almost the same time that it takes to crank it over to try to start it. Is there any chance that it is actually stopping firing when the key is allowed to return to "run" from the "start" position?
If you have fuel, and you have spark, it will run. It sounds like you have fuel available, so unless the injectors are not triggering (bad sensor or wiring) something is killing your spark. Try checking each component separately and you should find which one is giving you grief.

Hello Johnholley
I am wondering do you hear the fuel pump when you just turn the key into the on run position not crank just in run and listen and see if you hear the fuel pump run for a second, If you don't hear it you will want to check for power at the fuel tank, and have some one cycle the key while your under the truck with a test light. Hopefully you have power and you hear the fuel pump run. Now if you do hear the fuel pump running then the next thing you will want to check is for spark, It could be the ignition module or pickup coil. check out those thing and I am sure you will be able to figure out whats going on. If you don't get back to me and we can try a few other methods. I sure hope that helps you out johnholley. and thanks for using Fix Ya Bear001

SOURCE: 99 chevy cavalier theft system light on steady, car wont crank.

My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!

My truck did this after I replaced the fuel pump. Turned out to Fuel Pressure Regulator. It would crank and crank but never start. It's located underneath the black plastic manifold on the side of the injectors.

98 Chevy Malibu will start but dies in about 5 seconds. Have replaced fuel pump and I have fuel pressure. Have been told it could be the theft system. There are no diagnostic codes.


have you checked the spark plugs themselves? Vacuum leaks & the WRONG fuel pressure will cause the same effects. Pressure regulator, etc.

My 2001 Chevy Malibu won't start.. in September if


sometimes the new fuel pump goes bad, it does happen, if you disconnect the fuel line @ engine and hold it in a can or bottle, have an assistant crank engine, but do not start it, if you have gas coming out, your pump is working, careful , it will come out fast !!!!!!!!!!!! have a rag ready. now you can move on to find the real problem.

Check for vacuum leak at intake manifold or bad fuel pump relay or have fuel pressure checked to see if fuel pump is working properly 40-45 psi it should be pumping

My 2000 chevy malibu wont start


IF THE ANTI THEFT LIGHT IS FLASHING WHEN U TRY TO START IT, TRY TURNING THE KEY TO THE ON POSITION FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES OR UNTIL THE LIGHT STOPS FLASHING. THEN TURN IT BACK FOR 5 SECS AND TRY TO START AGAIN. ALSO CHECK THE STARTER, IGNITION, AND FUEL PUMP.

2000 Jeep Grand cherokee Laredo wont start. Engine turn over . No noise from fuel pump with ignition on. Replaced fuel pump and filter.Turn ignition on- pump did not run.Jumped the fuel pump at the pump...


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

It felt like fuel filter was dirty lost power and started to shake then died change it it started but it was still rough. I let it sit for 15 min it ran a little better then died out again. It then sat...


Hook up a fuel pressure guage to the fuel line and see if you have constant pressure according to your vehicle specs.
Seems like the pump doesn't hold pressure and fails.
Hope this helps

2005 Chevy Malibu starting problem


sounds like its a gas problem. i would normally say its the pump but if you replaced it already then its not likely. i would look and see if there is anything in the tank clogging the pump. something may have got sucked up in there while you are turning.
