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...
GM ignition switch 10 minute relearn procedure
Doing a 10 minute ignition switch relearn procedure after the battery had
went bad. The Body Control Module lost all memory so it needed to relearn
the Passlock value inside the ignition switch before security system
allowed the vehicle to start.
Once the relearn process is complete, you must first turn the ignition
switch to the "off" position and then back "on" before attempting to start

and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This
video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch

GM Pass Key II Malfunctions: Bypassing V.A.T.S System
Your car won't start? SECURITY light steady lit or flashing? More then
likely it is the Vehicle Anti Theft System (V.A.T.S) at fault. Over time
the resister pellet imbedded in your car key wears out from years of
inserting and removing from the ignition lock cylinder. Here is a cheap way
to bypass it, so you can get back on the road.
How To Unlock A Theftlock Radio
How to get the theft lock code for Chevrolet, Pontiac and GMC cars and
trucks. This tutorial works with most cars from 1997 - 2003 the
demonstration is done on a Camaro / Firebird stereo, but is
the same for other decks. If none of the dealer codes in the video work,
google the phone number 1-800-537-5140 and you should be able to find more

So, once again GM has done it. They invented something that failed and yet
again they don't have a solution. This feature should not be added to any
car, even if someone steals the car, the odds of this system to stop
working are zero to none. Once WE THE OWNERS need to replace an ignition
cylinder or an ECM, then the system fails for us. And the Dealership has NO
CLUE how to fix it other than the helpful tip to crack the ECM open and
replace the "memory chip". We all know that the memory chip is integrated
and soldered on these years models. There is a reason why I love FORD!
