Iíve done a few hours of research alone on this website as itís so wonderful!
I have a 2003 Chevy Malibu(base) with the 3.1. My Theft Protection light comes on then the car won't start, shuts off while driving, and blah blah blah.
So I have purchased a new AC Delco part# D1493F.
All dealers and installers mention that they will have to program the unit. It's my understanding that the 2000-2005 Impala's use the same part. So I can only assume that the same instructions for programming these things are the same. Since I have a 2005 Impala LS, I can also only assume that I will need to do the same thing to it in the future.
So a few questions:
1. If I dissect the original key cylinder wouldn't I just be able to key the new cylinder using the four various "pins" into each of the 10 (9 is only used) proper slots? ($50 at the dealership)
2. Everybody is speaking of this Security Relearn procedure. Is this the same procedure that the dealer is trying to charge me $100 to do? Is this also the same procedure that is http://www.naioa.com/v2/module.....amp;pid=15
3. Would the steps be the same for the 2005 Impala LS as the 2003 Malibu base model?
I'm looking to do this on the SUPER inexpensive (Who isn't these days). I was torn to put this in the anything goes or the 2005 Impala thread.
Thank you for any and all direction!
Perhaps I should rephrase my statement above.
If I have a 2005 Impala LS with the 3.8 and using the AC Delco part# D1493F.
Do I just dissect the original key cylinder, configure the new cylinder to match the old cylinder, install the new cylinder, then follow the steps of http://www.naioa.com/v2/module.....amp;pid=15 to allow my key to start my vehicle?
There, that should make it pretty straight forward.
