Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
Reset the computer and leave the battery out for 10mnts.
Try resetting the alarm system. One possibility is to put the key in the car door, turn to lock the door, then turn again to open it in order to reset the alarm.
However check the bellow instructions which may help you resolve your problem…
Find the shut-off switch for your alarm system. When your alarm was installed, the installer most likely equipped it with a shut-off switch to allow you to turn off your alarm system at any time. The shut-off switch is usually located below your steering wheel near your feet and is hidden so that thieves can't find it. Your installer should have shown you where it is. You may have to hold it down for three or four seconds for the system to shut down.
Disconnect the fuse on the alarm in your fuse box. The fuse for the car alarm should be marked on the box, or you may have to look at your car owner's manual to figure out which fuse to remove.
Find the alarm's fuse. It may be in the fuse box, usually located below the steering wheel to the left. Many cars also have other fuse boxes (sometimes three or even more) inside the engine compartment. If it's an aftermarket alarm (installed after the car left the factory), you'll find the fuse under the hood, usually on a wire connected to the positive battery terminal.
Locate the fuse that has the alarm label. You should find a fuse diagram on the lid of the fuse box. An aftermarket alarm won't have any label. Don't worry; removing the wrong fuse won't cause any damage. If you pull out a fuse and the alarm stays on, put that fuse back in and try another.
Disconnect the battery. This option is a last-case scenario. Turn off your car and remove the keys. Two cords that power your car run up to the top of the battery where they are screwed on (think of the positive and negative connectors you use when you jump start your car). Use a wrench to unscrew the side nut of each connector. (Do the negative side first, and when you reconnect the battery put the negative side back on first.) You should be able to lift the connector up and off of the battery. This method is most helpful when you have a car alarm that is going off at night, or when you are not actively using the car.
