Sounds like your problem is with the cars alarm system. this message will come up after the alert is tripped and the key is put in the ignition switch to start the car.

I have a 2003 chevy malibu that won;t start. When you turn the key to on the Theft System light comes on steady ( no flashing). I t used o go into this mode periodically where the Theft System light...


I have had the same problem. This has happened to me three times in the past nine months or so. Per the owner's manual, you turn the key to the on position and wait about ten minutes. This resets the system and when the "Theft System" light goes out, it starts right up. I did this each time and it started right up.

Is there a quick fix to get me home


Move the key in and out of the lock cylinder over and over to clean the contacts. Then wait the three minutes. Don't try to start it before the three min is up or the three min. timer will start over.
