Hi I was wondering if u any information about what I can do to get my Malibu start
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 6 months ago.

How far have you gotten? Do you have a scan tool that will read live data?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I check it and reading nothing it getting 57lbs of pressure. And the injector not open they getting fire to them but still not open. I took the plug off the and check by putting some power to the and the open but want open when the.pluged to the car
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 5 months ago.

This still sounds like a theft deterrent issue. A good scan tool would be able to tell you if the fuel is disabled due to theft or not, I'd be looking at this if your car were in my shop.

If you don't have a scan tool that will do this, you'll need to hire a mechanic that has that capability.
