Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
Hello. You can view a free chilton's repair manual at google.com under ebooks. Or go to autozone.com and register for free.
There is a pin sized hole that will need to be pushed in and then you will need to turn and pull the ignition.
If you are replacing this due to the anti-theft light coming on and you having to wait 10 minutes with key in on position to reset computer and theft light, then forget it becuase it won't help. It is a bad passlock system that everyone is waiting on a recall for

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.

I would check the fuel pump turn key on do not start or turn engine over just until dash lights up and you should hear a grunt sound come from back seat area if you do not hear this grunt your fuel pump is not working.Also if you have a check engine light on you should have your can scaned with a OBD 2 scan tool to retreve and faults the cars computer might be undrer going.

disconnect negative battery terminal, remove trim around switch, be carefull it will easily break, it pulls out, it is held on dash by clips they will pull out. remove the 2 screws that hold in switch. push the switch in about 1 inch to clear the mounting bracket, then lift it out.
