I have a 2001 chevy malibu. The security light was on constant, not blinking. I tried the relearn procedure 10 minutes on 5 seconds off. The security light stayed on. Replaced the ignition lock cylinder. Performed the relearn procedure and the security light went out. The car still won't start. I can hear the fuel pump. I have spark. The car tries to start but acts like it isn't getting fuel. Anyone have any ideas? Could it be the body control module bad also?

Hi khar68

The security system is still activated, this type of problem happens when a battery has been disconnected. There is one method that you can do in this type of situation, turn the ignition on, open your door and press the door lock once ( do not exit your car or you will lock yourself out) make certain that all doors lock when you press the switch. Next, manually pull up the rod to the drivers door lock. When the security light goes off attempt to re-start the engine. Doing this everytime is a real hassel because your car's security system malfunctions often you will have to do this procedure to disarm it.


post back your results.

Tried your procedure. Still won't start. I did get a series of beeps from the drivers door speaker. 1 beep followed by a pause 3 beeps followed by a pause then 4 beeps and pause then the sequence starts over.

Thanks for the help

Double check the door lock switch for any binding. When the beeps sounds put your hands on the emergency flasher button do feel the vibrations coming from there ?
