2001 Chevy Malibu Won't Start - Anti-Theft, Security Flaw

This is related to 2001 Chevy Malibu I hopped in and it would not start. Sounded and acted like it was out of gas, or the fuel pump was bad, or there was no spark to fire the plugs. I googled for like 2 hours and found a solution, tried it and it worked! Turn the key to the "On" position for 10 - 15 minutes, turn it to the "Off" position for like 5 seconds (In the video I said 5 minute, but did not realize how PISSED OFF I was At CHEVY)... It worked. Second video was after the 11 minutes I waited, turned off for 5 seconds and then it started... Peace Out, Tom

I'm guessing this applies to other years too. Maybe not. The Malibu has automatic headlights that you can't really turn off, so if your battery is old and weak, leaving the key in the "on" position for 10 minutes might drain the battery. So make sure you have jumper cables in your trunk: http://amzn.to/2iMaX8c Recorded on 9/7/2016 and I really didn't realize that the light was going to stop flashing in a few seconds, that just sorta happened.

Chevy Malibu Won't Start- Faulty Ignition
Does your Chevy Malibu not start when you turn the ignition. Does it SOUND and ACT like it is out of gas, or the fuel pump is bad, or that there is no spark to fire the plugs. Well before you take it to the shop and try to replace one of these items I've got a solution for you, and its FREE! To date the best solution I have found is presented in this quick video! It has worked every time without fail! Essentially, this video shows you how to bypass the (VAT) Vehicle Anti-theft system that is actually shutting down fuel to the engine because it is not identifying your key as the right key in the ignition. For further clarification, the issue we are addressing in this video is the ignition switch, which for this model was a faulty manufacture design. What happens is when you try to start your Chevy Malibu, it tries to turn over, but won't actually start, as if there is not enough fuel getting to the engine. Most of the time if you allow the vehicle to sit for 20 minutes or a day after failing to start, it will eventually start. This can be problematic if you are in rush to get somewhere. Many times I’ve been stuck sitting in my car in freezing cold weather and 100-degree summer heat trying to get my car to start, until I figured out this simple solution that has allowed me to start my car consistently everyday for over a year and it still works! There are three ways to deal with this issue. 1) you can cycle your ignition from off to on until the Theft System light turns off. 2) You can connect a bypass switch to your ignition, which requires dismantling your ignition switch, or 3) Use the simple method described on this video.
