1 Answer

Same year car, had the same problem. Doing the reset stuff didn't work at all, the light stayed on. Parts guy at the dealer said that since this year Malibu doesn't have chip or transponder key, reprogramming wouldn't work. Had to replace the passkey censor in the ignition. It worked in the sense that the anti-theft light went off. Car still won't start though. Worked fine until Friday when it wouldn't start and the light came on. Light blinked when I first installed the new censor, but still wouldn't start after the light stopped blinking. It's as if the anti-theft disabled the car, but it refused to re-enable it after the anti-theft was fixed. I've got another problem where the key cylinder is sticking. It did it some before, but completely jammed after I put it in the new ignition part. Gotta fix that before I can try anything else. Hopefully the dealer will have more advice to root out the problem while I'm there.
