i have a 2001 Saturn sl1 and the anti theft system shut down the car. to reset the antitheft system try to start the car. leaving the key in the on possition disconnect the positive battery terminal (red terminal). wait for about ten minutes, with the key still in the on position this whole time, reconnect the terminal on the battery. then get in the car and turn the key to start. this fixed my problem and hopefully it will help you as well.

If you have disconnected the battery upon reconnecting it anti-theft system was activated. Your remote or key should deactivate it when you attempt to start the car. Also check your owner's manual for more details.

How do you disable a 2002 Malibu anti-theft?

I don't know how to disable the system yet but, to reset it :insert the ignition key and turn to the on position (do not turn the key to start)leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes to reset the anti-theft systemYour Malibu should now start normally.It has been suggested on other web sites that not inserting the key all the way when trying to start the car can cause the anti-theft system to activate.On the 2002 Malibu when the anti-theft device is activated it prevents gasoline injection. Thus you Malibu acts like it's not getting any gas.
