First check that your fluid level is full thats running in park, second when you check the fluid see if its bright red or brownish in color if it's brown does it smell kinda like onions? if yes then replace all the transmisson fluid and filter, should be done every 30,000 miles if you change fluid and filter also add lucas transmisson condtioner, and tranny will take 12 quarts but if you have never done it take itto a tranny shop, they will charge about $150.00 more or less.

I had that same problem a few months ago. I didn't really think anything of it because my car still drove the same and I didn't know it could turn into a big problem. A year ago I had my transmission rebuilt on my cherokee then this year a few weeks after that little light started having problems, my car just stopped moving. I had it towed back to the shop and they needed to replace a bad part on my transmission again. So if you've previously had problems with your transmission I would suggest getting that checked out so you don't get stuck on the side of the road for 4 hours like I did. Sorry if this doesn't help, I'm not exactly a car expert I just have lots of problems with mine.

Hi I own A 98 Chevy Malibu, my ignition locked n i had to put a new ignition switch in, well now my cars tellin me Something Theft Service. Im wonder what I need to do? Iv unhooked battery for hours ect...


You need to reset the theft system. To do this, try to start it. It should start and die. Then after it dies and the theft light is flashing, leave the key on for 10 minutes. After 10 min, the theft light should go out. After the theft light goes out, turn off the key. Count to 5, then restart it. Then it should work.

Overdrive Problem.


The throttle sensor on higher mileage vehicles has been know to cause this type concern. The voltage that the engine and trans controller sees starts to get erratic from the sensor and will kick out of OD.

Can you bypass theft system


No, I think he has the same problem I do. I have a stock 99 malibu...no real theft system. Usually after it rains or gets cold, a "theft system" light comes on in my dash. I can be driving, and the light will come on. If I turn the car off, I cannot restart the vehicle till about 20 minutes have passed and the light finally goes off. Sometimes this light comes on when I try to start the car in the morning. I put the key in the ignition, and the car will not start for 20 minutes till the darn theft system light goes off. From what I gathered, the theft system issue has something to do with a "passlock II" defect. I have no idea what this is, all I know is that I can't get a mechanic to listen to me, because the issue never repeats itself when I go to a garage. It gets a little annoying, but I've learned to deal with it.
