Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
The car wont start, will not go into park and the battery and fuel are fine, please help
There is a common problem as I found out with the '02 Malibu- a glitch with the anti-theft system. I had a similar problem in which I thought my battery was dead, so I replaced it. I had over a half tank of gas, but my car would not start. The quick fix for this is the following:
1. Turn your key to the "On" position (do not try to start) for exactly 10 minutes. The "Anti-Theft" light will flash.
2. Turn the key off for exactly 1 minute.
3. Car should start no problem!
This worked for me... so its a worth a try before you spend tons of money trying to figure out what else the problem could be.
Hope this helps!
