The only way to fix this is (A) go to a junkyard and get a used steering column and then have the key and pass code reprogrammed (B) go to the dealer ship and see if reprogramming the pass key will allow this to work. sometimes if the battery goes dead the pass key will not reconize the correct key for this car

What wire can i cut behind the sterio for the antitheft fuelpump cutoff


There is no wire you can cut ,doing this will make your vehicle never start .
The Personal Automotive Security System (PASS-Key II?®) is standard equipment on the vehicle. The system is designed to prevent vehicle theft by disabling the engine unless an ignition key with a specific electrical resistance is used in the ignition cylinder. The PASS-Key II?® system and the universal theft deterrent operate separately. The universal theft deterrent system is optional. The PASS-Key II?® system includes the following components:
?€¢
The ignition key


?€¢
The ignition cylinder


?€¢
The body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The starter relay


?€¢
The powertrain control module (PCM)

Coolant sensor is activating engine light


Sorry, you'll have to get it fixed correctly.
The warning light is on because the sensor is not working.
If the sensor is unplugged, the reading to the computer is 20 degrees below zero. If the connector is jumpered, the reading is 275 degrees.
Neither temp is within spec.

On the key there is a diode theat the key connects inside the cylinder lock from the lock cyclinder their is two white wires that thread down the collum to the maim collum connector.here they plug into the main harness. If this white set of wires is broken or cut anywhere or connected to ground then the security system won't let the car start. A new tumber comes with the white wires and the contacts that touch the key. I remove the new contact wire assembly from the old tumbler and install the new on that came with the new tumbler. I don't use the new tumber as I don't have a key with the diode in it thats right for the car. with the old key in the old tumbler with the new wire and contaacts all assembled the car should reconize the key and run like it used to,

The key turns but the car will not start, the antitheft light is on, is it possible to bypass so the car will start


There is no wat yo by-pass the anti theft system on these vehicles. If you just had a key cut for it, it may need to be programed, however this being a little bit of a problem with the malibu, most likely the ignition switch & housing has quit reading the key and does not recognize it, thus causing the problem. Another poss problem is if you are still using the same old key that have used forever, its possible that the key is getting so worn form going in and out the the ignition switch that the switch & housing does not recognize it anymore and you may just have to get a new key cut for it and have it programed. Hoped this helps.

If you do not have a pass key any more, then you will need to dissable the antitheft (pass key module) in order for the engine to turn over. From what I gather you have replaced the column with an older version, which will not allow any comm. with the module. The pass key module enables the starter circuit. See diagram.

Massage, pass key fault


there is a micro chip inside the head of the igntion key, when you put the key in the igntion the sensor inside the steering colunm will read the resistance of the micro-chip. If there is a match the engine will start. If for some reason the sensor will not read the micro chip the system will think some is stealing the car. I would try another key 1st, if this persist, the module will need to be replaced. Start with a new key, its cheaper.
You'll need to go a GM store parts departement with the old key, drivers license & registration for the dealer to cut a new key.

Saturn LS1 2000 wants to start but won't


The fab key activates the security system in the car, the ignition pass lock may need to be reset to your ignition key's. It Takes about 30 min to do. Try resetting the pass lock to read your ignition keys. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK. Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps. The ignition keys has a resistor value for the ignition to read and after a few years the resistance may change and the Pass Lock has a had time reading it's value so you have to reset the pass lock to read the keys again.
