1999 Chevy Malibu won't start

Asked by May 05, 2015 at 12:55 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car was running fine, using no
fluids, aand getting great gas mileage.
I stopped at the bank and turned it off
and now it won't start. Checked the
battery, replaced the fuel pump and
filters, spark plugs are fine, and a
freind who is a mechanic checked it
and said its not an anti-theft system
malfunction. Has anyone experienced
this? Any idea what would be causing
it? It turns over but won't start.
Im a single ded and really need this
car going. Thanks in advance.

If you recently installed any music or alarm system it will be the resistor. A tiny wire which any music or alarm shop can fix for $50. If they put the wrong one on it will keep your car from starting
