Customer Question
My 2002 chevrolet malibu...

My 2002 chevrolet malibu wont start because the anti theft system is activated , its not blinking but stays solid when turned to the on position

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

We have some what looked but dont have the tools to clean them yet the battery light is also on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?

We have tried unlocking the door with the key and locking it again , we have tried the 10 min wait thing like 3 times

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The car is still not starting , and im afraid to drain my battery with the 10 min option , becuse my radio light s and all thta stay on
