Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
Posted by Anonymous on
It means that the lock cylinder was not installed properly and the ignition switch is detecting a key in the ignition even when there is not one in there. Here is a link to instructions from www.steeringcolumnservices.com that show step by step procedures for the correct repair. I hope this helps you

That is right. Could be security system. If anything fails it won't allow the vehicle to start.

You checked all fuses? Dis-connect positive battery lead for a few seconds and reconnect. Do you have spark & fuel?

I have a Chev 2004 Malibu and so does my cousin.. This is a problem that A LOT of these cars have, but Chevy does not see this as a SAFTY issue... so they will not fix it. This problem will continue to happen to you.. there is NO way to fix it or by pass it. Basically your ingition is not recognizing your key, and this is Chevy's crappy way of keeping your car from being stolen. You will notice when your car doesn't start, your THEFT SYSTEM light is BLINKING... What you need to do is, when this happens to you, leave your key in the ignition, and turn it to ACC. Leave it there for approximately 10 minutes, until the THEFT SYSTEM light is SOLID, not BLINKING anymore. Turn your car off, and then turn it back on. Your car should start right up. I had this happen to me EVERY SINGLE TIME I got in my car for 2 weeks! Then it stopped and I thought it wouldn't do it anymore. But just as you need to be somewhere and you are running late.. THE CAR KNOWS!!! And it will do it to you again! Good luck!

That model was known for lock cylinder ans ignition switch problems for the no start and theft lock concern.The chime issue could be a problem or not check in your owners manual for chime sounds.I remember when working on these cars they have different chime sounds for different selected options that could be changed and I also had some problems with the BCM body control module causing some weird issues with these models.

Thank you all for your replies, it's much appreciated.
Douglas gan, that means a mechanic can still reinstall or reprogram the same ignition system we already installed, no need to change it again right? going to the mechanic tomorrow will post an update !
So I took the car to a dealer and they told me the ignition switch was stuck, so it's not recognizing that the key is out when I leave the car...that's why it keeps beeping . We Changed the lock cylinder, 1 out of 3 cylinders worked and 2 didnot even thought the pieces are brand new. if you get such a problem insist that they change the lock cylinder sometimes the parts are defective
