Question about Cars & Trucks
When the anti theft system was created,the dealers forgot to tell the new car buyers about how much the fob matters to the vehicle,without it,owners are stuck,your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.if you lost your fob or never had it,whatever,you need to have the exact fob that came with that car from the factory,the key and fob have a chip in them that only go to that certain car,if you do not have it,then you need to buy a new one from the dealer or ebay and then you need to contact your dealer about programming the fob to your car,you might not have to have it towed if they have the documents from the car,the only other way is to get a junk car,with the steering column,key,fob and all computer boxes and door locks and switch them,i just did that with a 98 dodge dakota,and it works.

Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else fails....call the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer

There is no dip stick. Its most likely not the fluid. These malibu's use the first generation GM LAN system. Check the data cord comming from the transmission near the mechanical shifting linkage. Alot of these shifting issues and errors are from a break in the wiring causing bad data to be sent/rvcd to/from the computer control module- these cars are electronically controled shifted, not mechanical.

sometimes after replacing dead batteries in remotes the remote resets itself to a different code to that of the vehicle, ie the last time you used the remote it sent a signal to the system, lets say for argument sake, 123456, then the system would open when you pressed the button again as this would clarify the 123456 and close, but when you remove the battery or it stays dead for a certain period of time ( different modles vary) it will reset to factory code it might be 000000, and your vehicle is waiting for 123456 to open it, so what you have to do is reprogram the remotes to the system, you will have to ask the dealership in what sequence you have to do it, they will tell you how to reset the remotes, sorry its long winded but better explain why first so you understand the reason behind the remote, the numbers are just indications on how it works, no numbers are seen obviously this is just an example on how the system comunicates with the remotes hope this helps, most of all hope you get it lol
