Every once in a while the security light on my malibu comes on and the
car will not start - we input the key to the ingnition wait 10 minutes then the car will start. This does not happen every time - just every once in a while. Does anyone know a way to fix this problem?

Re: 2002 CHEV MALIBU - SECURITY SYSTEM
The car has a built in security theft lock, what yours is doing is loosing the key, so when you put your key in it thinks it is being stolen, by leaving the ignition on for a period of time you are allowing the computer to recognize the key, often you can solve this problem by going to your chevy dealer and having a new factory key made, usually costs less than $10
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

YOU CANT REPLACE PCM AT HOME BECAUSE YOU NEED SPECIAL DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO REPROGRAM THE NEW PCM.YOU NEED GM SCANNER THAT CAN REPROGRAM RELEARN CKP AND CMP.RELEARN IDLE AND REPROGRAM THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM.
your security system could of locked up thinking that the car was being stolen, try this put your key in the ignition turn on the key till all the lights come on and leave it on for 10 minutes after that turn the key off for 3 seconds and then try to start this should unlock the security system if that is what happened. hope this helps
heres how to reset theift system. turn key to on, let set for about 10 minutes, then turn ignition off. take out key from ignition, after 1 or 2 minutes, start car. all gm.motors vehicles from 97-2005 contain a security system called passlock system. have a great day.
Does it have a security system? If so, see if the security light is flashing in the on position. If so, leave it in the on position for about 10 minutes and the light will go off. Then it will start. Once this problem starts it will happen again in the future.
Remote control door lock reciver an the BCM - body control module control the locks . The key switch is a electrical input to the BCM , the BCM controls the door lock actuators . Your best bet ,have it towed to the dealer .
A common thing to cause a no start is the theft / security system. If you try to start, then let go of the key, and the theft / security light starys on or blinks, then you have a problem in that system. A part called the Passlock Cylinder is common for this. Aside from that, normal diagnosis of checking for spark and fuel presure would be needed.
