Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 chevy malibu is acting like its run on out
of gas even though it is full and when it does die
my battery light comes on then a security light.
Any ideas in what could be wrong with it?

This may be related to the antitheft system. The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Normally when the injectors are turned off, the car will run for a second or two, and then stall. When it's the security locked out starter, you won't even hear a click when you turn the key. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/ & http://newrockies.com/
