Dwilt79 nailed it! Happens to me all the time. A quick jiggle until I hear that latch button pop out is all it takes. Have to explain to the rest of the family too, I'm not the only driver.

Make sure the car is all the way in park. The least little offset of the shifter will cause the key not to fully go in off position. This happened to me when my automatic start kicked on an my car was smoking due to a hole in my coolant tank. How a hole got in the coolant tank is beyond me but it's a situation I haven't seen listed. Hope this is helpful.

Chevy malibu won't crank dashboard functions no theft system issue, turn to on position and makes no sound...could this be the starter?


Most definitely sounds like a starter. Try toggling the key to the start position several times a second until the starter operates. I do this to my 1997 Cadillac Deville occasionally as the weather changes without changing the starter (which probably should be done).

I also have a 1990 Cadillac Deville that does this occasionally.

Must be a GM thing.lol.

Reset security system on 2003 chevy malibu


PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key.
If this doesn't do it u have a part failure and need to have the dealer test the system.

I have an 03 malibu with 57K or so miles, it has just started stahling out and not starting properly. It will turn over like it wants to start, but wont.????


If the THEFT PROTECTION lamp is blinking, the VATS system has diabled your fuel pump. Turn the ignition switch to ON, leave it on till the lamp stops blinking. Turn the key to the OFF position, start the car.
Most likely you need to have the ignition switch replaced. Malibu and Impala are notorious for this issue.

Theft syste,


No. The anti-theft system is inherent with the vehicles wiring. It can be bypassed, but I have no knowledge of how to do it.

Starts but quits


If the engine starts and then quits when you release the key to the ON position it could be the anti-theft systemhas locked out. Turn your key to the ON position and wait ten minutes until the ANTI-THEFT light on the dash board goes out. The car will now start and run if that was the problem.
