For all 9C1 Police Edition Impalas. I have a 2002. I researched the "no dome light problem when doors open" and found that yes it is for officer's safety, however it is NOT a wire disconnected at each dorr. Rather the dome lights are disabled in the BCM (body control module computer)programming. This means a special letter/code is put in to disable the dome light at the BCM. The problem of course is that once a BCM is programmed with the security code, it cannot be re-programmed. This means you have to buy a new BCM and have it programmed-but the BCM price is not too bad. I found it at RockAuto.com for about $140 delivered. Hope this helps some of you.

Hello everyone, I own a 2002 Impala LS, am the second owner and at 34,000 miles my transmission went out, warranty was up and Chevy wouldn't do anything, so $2300 later I had a beefed up rebuilt tranny. Now at 37,000 miles tranny is acting up again and its in the shop now, they are replacing a solenoid and said that 10 engine codes come up and think it needs a new computer because everything else is running fine....we will see. A $500 job to replace a fuel sensor was done right after I got it but covered under warranty, done right around 29,000 miles.
What should I do? I love the car but I can't keep putting money into it... and with the tranny loan and the car payment I could have had an suv at this point, but owe way more than the car is worth now...
any suggestions in any direction would help, thanks!

I would take it in because I was having the same problem with mine, and my coolant was leaking to my gaskets and they needed to be replaced. Get it checked just in case because I didn't really lose hardly any coolant at first but then it got real bad real fast. It cost over $700 to get it all fixed.

I am having the same problem. My low coolant light is coming on and going off. I have checked the levels and everything is fine. My temperature gauge to a little low. Especially when I have my heater on. I don't know what the deal is!
