Passlock system problem???

Asked by Feb 02, 2017 at 06:14 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LT FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 Malibu won't start at all.
Replaced ignition switch already. No
help. It started with the occasional no
start thing then got worse. Now it won't
turn over at all. Even after getting
battery charged or getting a jump,  it
still won't do anything. Looked for the
bypass fix but my car does not have the
3 wires (black, yellow, white) anywhere.
This has me baffled. Also there is only
1 plug that goes into the ignition and it
is green. Please help.
Also,  there is s light on the dash that is
yellow and looks like a padlock that
won't ever go out. HELP

Since you said the light doesn't go out you have an issue with the passlock sensor or wiring.
