Asked by May 01, 2016 at 12:33 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Malibu Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Same problem as many ... Car starts then Shuts off ,, cant restart..  have tried a few things like unhooking battery etc. Just wondering though if the electric door lock is worn out of malfunctioning , would that have an effect on the anti theft system ?

Please excuse the spelling ... I meant to spell lock ... Just frustrated about this . Don't want to pay $300.00 for a tool or something to bypass the anti theft system

It can if the locking mechanism is not fully locking or unlocking the latch on any door, this will cause the sensing switch to show a false reading, and thus setting off the alarm. You would be better off getting it fixed, other than bypassing it.
