Happens all the time to me. I trigger the Theft System by accident then the car won't start.  try this: Put the key in the ignition. Turn it to the "on" setting,but don't try to start the engine. Let it sit for 10 minutes until the Security light stops blinking and turns off. Take the key out and restart. Warning - don't have your lights, radio,etc on while you do this or the battery may die.

I also had this problem. If the anti-theft light blinks...like everyone was saying....just leave it in the on position for 10 minutes, wait for the light to go off....turn off the car....try to start...if it doesnt work, try to start again immediately....worked twice for me, but yes....it did happen a second time....and actually this time, it stayed on....DOH!

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy malibu classic spark plug replacement

the only thing i will recomend is to make sure the engine is complety cold before doing it, because more of this cars come with aluminum heads and if not cold before doing it might damage spark plug thread, i can't remebre very well the easiest way to replace them, but if it is a v-6 motor will be easier by removing the two top engine mounts on top of radiator and the gently lift transmission by rear side of car and this will give you more clearance on the rear plugs, and if plug wires are hard to remove tunr it rt to left and then puul them of, if they brake don;t try to fix them just replace it.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy malibu won't start up

I have an 04 Malibu and when I get hard starts when I'm in the car I just press the accelerator down about half way and it always starts right up, some times I have to hold the accelerator down a little after starting to stop it from stalling but it is rare.

SOURCE: i can't disable my anti theft device on my chevy

This usually works.Lock the doors with the remote.Press lock twice sounding the alarm.Then press the unlock button twice.Your car should start now.If that doesnt work try this,Lock the car again with the remote once.Go over to the passenger side door and use the key to unlock the door then press in the door unlock all doors.Hopefully by now it worked.Now if none of these work your security probably malfunctioned and theres only two things that will work,One is disconnecting the battery for 5 mins then reconnecting.unlock doors.the start.If that doesnt work you'll have to take it to the dealer to get the security reset or replaced.The steps I have wrot you are the diagnostics to reset it.I hope these work for you and good luck.See ya had have a great day..

SOURCE: How do I replace a headlight bulb for a 2004 chevy

Change headlights in 2004 Chevy Malibu Classic
Open the hood and pull up on the two black tabs on either side of the lamp assembly. Pull the lamp assembly forward gently and unclip the wiring harness. Twist the socket counter-clockwise and remove it. The bulb should be removed by wiggling it.
Install new bulb in its place and turn the socket back into place. Reconnect the wiring harness and return the lamp to its original position. Line up the holes in the lamp assembly to the round ends of the mounting pins, and press down on the two black tabs to hook the lamp assembly into place.

My 2004 chevy malibu classic 4 cyl wont start its


There are four things required for an engine to run: air, fuel, compression and properly timed spark. If you have fuel and timed spark, the only two variables are air and compression. Air is not the likely problem, and compression should be good unless you blew a head gasket or the rings in all four cylinders. How did you determine that you have fuel and spark? Those are the two most likely problem areas.

I have 2004 Chevy Malibu classic, it acts like it wanna crank but won't. it will turn over but won't stay cranked up.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

My 2004 chevy malibu classic won't start in weather colder than 50 degrees?


Somewhere along the electronic side you have a faulty component thats failing when the temperature drops ,what it is and where it is i have no idea at all it could be in the computer ,in a module somewhere and as iam a europeon mechanic whos never seen this model before i just cannot tell you were to look first .The fault though iam familiar with as had this on more than one occasion and older cars it was the ignition module but this is incorperated into the ECU on more modern motors .

Hi, you may have it flooded. Try holding the accelerator all the way down while cranking the engine to clear the gas out. Let us know if this doesn't work, and thanks for using FixYa.
