The car is not recognizing the remote control key fob. It wasn't programmed correctly. The car "thinks" that you're trying to steal it so the security system has shut it down. Try just using the key to unlock and start it. As long as you're using the same key, once you unlock the door with that key it should start. HTH. -Jim

I am currently having this issue. Mine seems to do it at random times while driving. i would be driving and the light would come on for a breif 1-2 seconds and go away. But also, it seems like the gauges (gas and oil) go down as if the car is shut off, then goes back up. Any one know why it would be doing this?

Jchavez961. My Chevy cobalt is doing the exact same thing. I've recently had a lot of brake work done but I'm not sure what's happening. Let me know if you find out the issue. Thanks!


TPerkins, still haven't figured out the issue. I had a couple brake work done too. New rotors and brakes. Still lighting up at random times for a quick second. Not sure why.


Jchavez961. I had the codes read : U0073 U0140 P0575 P0719 I am bringing the car in on Monday. Stay tuned

I picked it up last night. I'm going to copy what the sheet says: After operating vehicle for a few minutes GMLAN bus does offline. Measured 620HMS across terminals 6 and 14 of DTC. Manipulated wiring harness and found resistance fluctuation. Isolated poor circuits at C101. Replaced terminals and wiring for circuits 2501 and 2500. Cleared DTCS no further faults

I have a 04 chevy malibu and my battery may be dying and my symbol the car with the tool is coming on but going off and also the symbol the car with the lock is constantly on. I want to know are these symbols coming on because my battery is going out? Ive taken it to a mechanic who said it is time for me to get a new battery.
