2000 malibu passkey system

I want to install a remote car starter, and realize i need a passkey immobilizer. Is this system pk3? or pk2? I am just trying to understand exactly what I need.

will this work? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PassK...Q5fAccessories

or provide me with models people are buying for the people who have done it?

thanks

It's Passlock on the 2000 Malibu. Just search for "gm passlock bypass kit". These things aren't rocket science.

Re: 2000 malibu passkey system

With all due respect, I know you mean well but that "toggle switch" you found on your Malibu is something someone before you put there. I take it that steve6's looking for a plug-and-play kit that doesn't involve a permanent THEFT SYSTEM light. Still, you seem to have a solid understanding of how Passlock works. I'd love to see it in a tutorial, complete theories and pictures.

If somebody had installed it themselves it would be behind the CD-player like every single guide on the internet states to put it. Not in a place that is hard to find and not readily available. My father purchased this vehicle when it was a year old (and had been a rental car previously) and nobody has done any home brew modifications to it, I read this guide online of the built in toggle switch and it's location and haven't had time to double check it's truthfulness but considering there was a second thread started where they dug up the same guy and had him post a picture of it's OEM location because most of them had trouble finding it and they all stated it worked for them. It must in fact have some validity so thank you for thinking I don't know what I am talking about and give people false advice.
I'm not doubting that you have this switch in your Malibu and have found it to be functional. However, I'm having a really hard time with your statement, "EVERY vehicle with a passlock system has one built in somewhere." I wouldn't mind getting a picture or even a part number stamped on it and the wire color on each terminal, when you get a chance (and if you feel like it, of course).

Re: 2000 malibu passkey system

I will have a look for the switch, I did not see anything when I had the panels off to put the remote car starter in. (its already installed, car will start but only run for about 3 seconds before shutting off).

I don't really want to leave the car stranded if the battery goes dead or anything, it is my GF's car and it has to operate normally. I have ordered a DEI 556LW off ebay, should do it..

Re: 2000 malibu passkey system

Guys, I'd like to ask both of you to realize that this looks like it could easily go downhill and result in one or both of you having an arguement on a public forum and pushing the limit of what will be allowed.

Please continue to post your opinions, but please also do so showing respect for each other, for other members, and for readers that visit from the public domain.

Just think before you post. It's easier than thinking before you speak, actually!

For more then just the Malibu but all N-Bodies so I assumed it must be true considering there are people that found his solution valid. So when I get the time I will track it down on my own car, just so I can shove it in your face so you'll stop doubting me like all those people doubted this random guy. I should just link the damn thread so you'll see for yourself. Actually, I'll do that later, just give me time and I will edit this post.

EDIT: http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic487882.htm

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it and I don't know if you realized but I've stated about a thousand times it seems on this website when my passlock system acted up I replaced my ignition lock cylinder and haven't had an issue since. I would appreciate an apology for continually not listening to what I said. And too bad the guys pictures aren't hosted anymore because I assume you will continue to doubt my information as well as this guys truthfulness. You did a great job at finding the one thing out of all the information I gave steve6 and focused on it because you thought you knew everything because you've seen all those guides how to bypass it by adding a toggle switch. You didn't even care about all the other possible solutions I gave him or the fact that I stated it was an unconfirmed source of information but it may be a cheap and easy solution if he took the time to find out if it was in fact true. So thanks again for trying to disassemble helpful advice from a good hearted forum member, that really makes people want to contribute their information to this forum. Just to be second guessed and treated like an idiot by somebody who the information was not intended for.
Okay, I went over what you've wrote in this thread again, line by line and post by post, and I have to admit I mssed certain key phrases like "I read this guide online of the built in toggle switch and it's location and haven't had time to double check it's truthfulness." Do accept my apology.

Also, this was never about you. Flaming and personal attacks aren't tolerated on this forum and I'd never engage in one anyway. I tend to collect all kinds of information on my rides and am not shy sharing things for which I have high confidence. Thus, your hidden switch really piqued my interest, is all.

But if they want it so bad they will bust out a window to get it wont your insurance cover it anyway? Either way, steve6 please follow up on this, we're all anxious to hear the results.
yes I tried that, it does not work, maybe if the key is ON, but you cant leave it on.
