You need to have your shifter cable adjusted it is most likely not letting your brake shifter interlock solenoid go shut and won't let the lock cylinder close all the way.

2001 Chevy Malibu- Key will not turn ignition to OFF. It will turn to start the car, but stops on ACC when attempting to turn off forcing me to disconnect the battery so it wont die.


I had the same problem with my 2001 malibu. I found that there is a cable that goes from the key switch to the shifter. and I disconnected the cable at the shifter, and I no longer have the key getting stuck on acc. you may need to push the cable (inner part) towards the switch.
if you pull the cable out just a little you won't be able to get the key to go all the way to the OFF position.
also there is a cylinder as you can see in the pictures, mine has had the wires cut( by the previous owner) you may need to unplug yours. I'm not sure. before you put the console back together try to start the car and put it in gear.

I have a 1999 Chevy Malibu LS. Occasionally when I turn the key to the off position the engine will shut down but the ignition switch appears to be in the acc. mode what causes this?


key switch could be bad.next time with the car running,keep pressure on key as if you were trying to pull it out and turn to the off position slowly, this will let you know if it is going past the lock position when you are shutting car off.The keys should come out just as you come to the off position, if they come out any earlier, the switch is bad.

2005 chevy malibu i replaced ignition now it starts for one second then turns off is can i directly permantly insert the chip from the key directly into sensor box which is cinnected to the ignition &...


A common problem is the ignition cylinder and/or the ignition switch. With the buzzing of the relay, i would say all this may be related to the ignition switch. A low voltage supply to any of the circuits that the switch feeds will give strange electrical conditions. If going to replace the ignition switch, then also do the cylinder at the same time. With all things described, sure sounds like the ignition switch. P.S. The locks may be related to the ignition switch problem or not at all. With that said, would suggest looking at the BCM(body control module)It control locks, and also has alot to do with the security system. See picture at bottom of this page of corroded BCM connectors. 4- Passlock Ignition lock
cylinder removed.
Install new cylinder.Try to start- it wont or dies.Leave key on for 10-12 minutes, or until light goes out.Then turn off key for 10 seconds.Turn key to 'on' position for 5 seconds, then turn to start

Ignition and Transmisssion Locked on 2000 Chevy Malibu


On this car there is a cable that is tied into the shifter, so you have to turn the keep to be able to take it out of gear. Its all in 1 big housing. Usually to remove the ignition cylinder it has to be in the run position and you push a little key down to remove it. Since your key won't turn you have to figure out a way to do it.However once you replace the ignition cylinder your shifter will move and you will be able to start the car. To get to the ignition switch/cylinder you have to remove the molding around the instrument panel and then the instrument cluster. Then you can unbolt the assembly in the front with a 10mm socket. lift the assembly up and now you have access to change it out. Hope this helps.
