How do you reset the security system on a 2001 Chevy Malibu?

Just turn the ignition key to on position and wait for approx. 10 minutes and the blinking anti-theft will go off. Turn the key to off and then back to start and the car should start up. This has happened to our 2001 Malibu at least a dozen times over the years.

Likewise, people ask, how do you reset the anti theft on a Chevy Malibu?

Leave the car in the on position for the usual ten minutes. When the theft light stops flashing, turn the key to the off position and attempt to start again. If you're just a little lucky, like I was, the car will start.

  1. Insert your key in the starter, start you car as you usually would and let it stall. Keep the key in the "On" position. In other words, don't turn the key back to the "Off" position.
  2. Wait until the "Theft Sys" light on your dashboard stays on without blinking. This will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

Also question is, how do I get my car out of anti theft mode?

The first way and most common way to get the anti-theft system to turn off is by using your key fob. You can press the alarm button, and this should get the system to turn off if you are close enough to the vehicle.

Can anti theft stop car from starting?

Anti-theft systems are designed to prevent your vehicle from being stolen. These systems are constantly evolving. Essentially, they work via an electrical circuit disconnecting to prevent power from flowing so your car won't start or will die immediately.
