Turn the key to the On position & leave it there until the Theft System light stops flashing (takes about 10 minutes). Turn key to off for 10 seconds, & car should then start.

Thief system


This is the anti-theft system working properly. The vehicle has lost communication with the key and it this causes it to go into theft mode. This can happen randomly, or if the battery in the vehicle was replaced. Unfortunately this means a trip to the dealership to have them reprogram a key.

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.

1997 chevy malibu anti theft system how do I fix this problem The car won't start I believe the car is in the anti theft mode


The late-90's GM Passlock system (e.g. 1997 Malibu, Regal, Impala, etc.) has a part around the ignition tumbler that goes bad and no longer reliably detects the valid key. In that situation, the "Theft System" light will slowly flash and the carburetor is cut off so the engine won't start. The time-out on the system is 10 minutes - you don't have to do anything, you don't have to disconnect the battery, the key can be out of the ignition -- it's just a time delay. After 10 minutes, the light goes out and you can try again (but if the key is again not detected, the light will start flashing again and you have to wait another 10 minutes)
Someone else, who had this problem, told me to remove all other keys from my keyring. The weight of the other keys pulls on the ignition key causing the key to be unreadable. It has been 7 weeks since I have been doing this and have not had a problem

97 malibu theft light killing my car


The theft passlock is shutting your fuel off try this Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10mins take key out wait 10seconds repeat 3 times total 30mins.

If this dont work a new ignition switch needs installed by a dealer because reprogramming is needed.Or You are right you can install a bypass switch bulldog.com will tell you how or take it somewhere where they install remote starts and they can do it

1999 Continental will not start


I think the anti theft anewer is correct. I have an extra key for my '99 Lincoln continental that apparently doesnt have whatever "chip" it needs in it. If you try to use that key it cranks but won't start. I don't know if the key "chip" can fail or not. Maybe a quick conversation with a lock smith will shed some light on the problem.
