Anyone now how to isolate wires for a keylss entry system and remote start. 

I Already have a wiring diagram from the kit manufacturer, but this is not very helpful when there are numerous duplicate wires making my task difficult.

Worse yet there is no Chiltons/Haynes manual on the 2001 Malibu yet. Only 2000 and the wiring between these years is very different.

Are you trying to do this blind? without a DMM? You'll need a DMM.

Notes:NOTE: This vehicle has the passlock II immobilizer system that, when adding a remote start, must be interfaced with. Use DEI part 555t or 555L. *1 Remove the radio, without unplugging it, to access the ignition harness. *2 Lock requires a negative trigger, and unlock requires a negative trigger through a 1,500 ohm resistor. Must use relays. Must close doors to lock with a single pulse. *3 Requires a high current ground. Use a relay. *4 The lt. GREEN/ black is located in the drivers kick and catches only the drivers door. The lt. blue is located in the harness coming from the drivers running board going under the drivers seat and it catches all other doors. Use both door trigger wires and diode isolate each. On the 2 door the is in the passenger kick. *5 The ECM is located under the left side of the dash to the left of the column.
