Anyone have any experience with this stuff? The car is an 01 malibu

I am trying to sort out an issue for a friend..

I think I have come across a variant of this problem. I am posting in hopes that someone can solve this problem for me and save me the headaches but if not I will share whatever I am able to come up with.

The car is is an 01 malibu and has the symptoms of a faulty passlock.

The car was drivin out of gas(or nearly out of gas) and would not start afterward. I am thinking this is unrelated to the current issues. 5 gallons have been put in the car.

Fuel pressure has been verified by gauge at the rail.

Car starts and runs normally for 2 or so seconds and dies immediately.

The door locks are not operating properly, I was told that this just started but I didnt observe it personally.

I have tried the 10 minute reset thing a few times over.

I have also tried to bypass the passlock with a resistor(930 ohms measured 950 ohms used)

A few observations..

The theft light doesnt blink, its always on solid.

The dash lights hesitate for abit before coming on when the key is turned to the on position, about 5-10 seconds. i havent checked this against another car but it seems abnormal.

despite the 5 gallons put in the car the gauge still reads empty

I checked for codes with a cheapish autozone scanner, a cts code came up, was cleared and didnt return. The scanner didnt have any real time information modes unfortunatly

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I will post any updates.

Thanks, Sam
