Theft deterrent system
I have a 2014 Chevy Malibu in the anti theft
deterrent system is on will not let me start the car
how do you fix this problem?
Try this: from the inside manually lock all the doors except the drivers, with key in hand exit the vehicle then close and using the key lock the drivers door, wait at least a minute or two then with the key unlock the drivers door and then check to see if the system has been deactivated. If not then you have a faulty door switch, bad wiring or a bad processor and it will take someone that knows this system to find the problem

My car anti theft came on last nite got it tow awa yo the dealership
I've had this issue for about a year with my 2013. Multiple times to the dealership, charged the computers, wires and all kinds of stuff. I guess I'm confused why my dealership keeps acting like they have no idea when this is clearly an issue with the Malibu's.
I'm having the same issue with my 2013 Chevy Malibu saying service anti theft I have to keep getting jumps. I've unplugged my negative and positive on battery, iv changed my batteries in my keys, any idea how I can fix this please help?
Can we all call The GM and complain about this issue with the Malibu. I've fought with them 2x on the phone. I recently bought the car and b cause I've never received a letter from GM I'm not intitled to the open recall that she said she couldn't tell me about. SMH . I know there has to be a recall. Here is the number18006302438
Last night (January 21, 2019) I've experienced the anti-theft system for the first time. I manually unlocked the driver side and the passenger side to allow both my pregnant wife and myself into the car. I noticed that no electronics were on as normally upon opening the door to our 2013 Malibu LTZ. Still, I inserted my key into the ignition and no turn-over. No radio. Nothing. My wife and I sat there in the freezing car for an hour trying to call for road side assistance and look for answers through the manual. Managed to arrange a tow, but it would take another hour to get there. We were pissed. This car has given is nothing but problems since we bought the car nearly three years ago, but I tried one more thing other than looking under the hood. With the key turned to the On/Run position I pressed the electronic seat adjuster and everything turned on. EVERYTHING. I turned the engine and was able to drive off. It's important to note that once the car turned on a message appeared on the display. It said (#) key(s) recognized for this vehicle. If the key is correct and it is locked in the ignition switch. Try adjusting the seat. I tried the radio and it did nothing, but I pressed the button to move the seat backward...voila. It is a clever system, however compiled onto the other issues we have had with this car, personally, we are very disappointed in General Motors.
On my 2015 Chevy Malibu the light keep coming on saying the front passenger side door is open but it's not ! the lights keep flickering on inside because of the car saying the door is open what could it be ?
Mine does this too. I stay in the car, push the start/stop button to clear the dash. Wait for a minute with door open until dash lights come on afain and then start the car. I have also tried pushing start/stop button to clear the dash, shut the door, use the remote to lock myself in, unlocking it and then start the car. I’m sick of it happening too. Bloody nuisance.
Turn key to on position for around 10 mins..I just now did it & it started straight up...
I have a 2014 chevy malibu and for the past 2 days everytime i turn on my car the service anti deterrent theft light keeps coming on. So there has to be something with this particular model. While in my car i locked it with my button on my key ring, set the alarm then unlocked the car and my car started right up.
I have a 2015 chevy Malibu my thef deterrent system is and my car want started
Okay, I found out that there is an issue with the wiring inside the car itself. Under the seats (both in front) where a wire ground faults from time to time. For me, it happens on humid rainy days (not all the time, when it does it's those days). It happened again last night. All I did was manually unlock the car, sat inside, closed the door, moved the seat (driver) and the car's display lit up. From there I inserted the key and an odd message popped up. Different from the last two times this happened as it read: "open and the close your driver side window". After that was done, the display went to my normally selected category and information setting. It's the wiring. From the multiple grounding issues these cars have to the inexplicable way the manufacturer decided to run the wiring for the car's main electronics under a seat using cheaply insulated cables. They know this, yet won't issue a recall, smh...
GM is pathetic for not inciting a recall! I’ve had this random issue with my 2016 Impala LTZ with our car not starting and it’s due to the anti theft system. I took it in to Chevy in March and they said nothing is wrong with it. To boot, if anyone here tries to use the GM app, it’s also USELESS when this occurs because you still CAN’T start or open the car! In fact it indicates nothing is wrong at all! POS. Bring it in.....for $168 we’ll run diagnostics to tell you the truth!
