2001 Chevrolet Malibu Factory Anti-theft question

Asked by Oct 16, 2016 at 07:01 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Malibu LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought my '01 Malibu from my
daughter in law. We had the anti theft
shutoff problem. All of the posts tell HOW to
correct the problem. I'd like to know WHAT
causes the problem in the first place and
after 15 years, has anyone developed a way
to effectively bypass this feature if it
becomes troublesome? Just curious

The problem is either the anti-theft module or the BCM (Body Control Module). This vehicle has the PASSKEY security system and cannot be bypassed. In addition, if you have a no start problem because of the security system the 10 minute "relearn procedure" will NOT work. It must be towed to the Chevy Dealer for repair! HTH. -Jim
