Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu

2 Answers

04 chevy malibu

The anti theft light is blinking, it turns over but wont start. Usually unplugging the battery resets everything and it will start right up, but this time nothing. I have put the key in the on position for 10 minutes then turned it off and tried to start it, and nothing, I have also put the key in the on position for 10 min and tried to start it without turning the key off first and still nothing. Then I tried to do a thing a friend told me to do with pumping the breaks a few times, and turning the key on then off over and over again, nothing works. Please what can I do to start my car.

Simple, free and doesn't hurt anything; Use ONLY your car's ignition key in the ignition - in other words, have NO other keys attached to the ignition key while in use.I had this same problem, increasingly worse (as I added keys to my car key ring). Finally, I seperated my ignition key from my other keys, and so far, no anti Theft problems!

If the light has not stop blinking when you wait ten minutes then it is not going to crank. My does it a lot but after 10 minutes the light has stopped blinking. I think that the ignition switch needs replacing or maybe just the key is worn out. I think when anybody goes to fix this GM problem it is a guessing game.

your problem is the ((body control module)) , and its location is behind the glove box. to make sure this is your bad part you have to disconect the negative battery and then unplug the ((bcm)) connectors and push them back in again .. conect the battery aagain and start your car,, if it happens again in the near future you are gonna have to change the bcm module and programm it by the dealer

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..

With the car RUNNING cut the yellow wire to the ignition switch from the group of three wires.
Make sure the car is RUNNING when the wire is cut.
Tape the ends and thats it.....the car will start first time from now on....as long as you don't mind not having anti theft.

My chevy Malibu 2013 makes a ticking sound when trying to start it .plus the engine light blinks as the engine is ticking but wont start .


Is the engine actually cranking over? or is it just a clicking sound. It might be that your battery is low and does not have enough voltage to turn the starter.

When anti theft light is blinking the car wont start. Can you bypass the anti theft device


On a 2003 Chevy Maibu the theft system light comes on and blinks when the system is triggered. The car will not start and the fuel pump cuts out. You must turn key to on and have all doors closed. Keep the key to on for 10 mins til theft light turns solid and then disappears. Then turn key to start and it should fire up.

'05 Chevy Malibu Wil Not Start


is the security light blinking on the dash? If so you need to rreprogram the key to the anti theft module. to do this, turn key to on...let sit for about 10 min or so until the security light flashes. turn key off.. count o 5. vehicle should start. if not then it will have to go to the dealer to have it specifically reprogrammed as the PCM and anti theft modules both no longer reconize the key code.

Reconnect the battery and turn the key to the ON position for ten minutes until the ANTI-THEFT light goes off. The car should start then if the theft system was the problem.
