It is not just the 2004 that the instrament panel needles stick. I found on my 2004 that the speedometer and temp gages stick when the instrament panel gets hot. I drive at night with the dash lights dim to keep the dash from heating up. Another trick is to close one of the dash vents on either side of the I/P and run the A/C. This keeps the I/P from heating up and the gages work properly. You can also take the instrument panel out and have it rebuild for around $170. There are several sites on the internet that will do the work. It appears to be a common problem on many GM vehicles not just Impalas.

The issue seems to be with the 2000 and 2001 models. I have a 2002 model. Does anyone know if GM fixed the problem???

I have the same problem. Mine does it when its cold. Once the motor warms up and I come to a complete stop and then take off it will work. I have had it not fix itself on two occasions and actually go all the way around 1.5 times! This has gone on for the last 2 years. For about the same amount of time the passengers windshield wiper will begin to flop and stop working. I have to tighten it up to get it to work for a short time once again. Now the new problem is the car not starting. Looking like electrical problems. Once I put it in neutral and try starting it a few times it will start. It doesn't have that many miles to be having this much trouble. My 97 Ford F150 has 189,000 miles and less problems!!

I am having the same problem with my remote so if anyone has a solution please let me know. Is the problem with the receiver? I have replaced the battery but the problem persists. We have 2 remotes...same problem with both.
#403 of 447 What wrong with my gas

No matter the amount of gas I put into my car the gas light comes on I do not notice any leaks, but my gas hand never worked it always showed empty but just recent my gas fuel light will not go away. I do not know what to do.

The same thing happened to me when my "fuel level sensor" went bad. In my 2001 Impala I was able to replace it without removing the gas tank due to an access panel between the trunk and back seet under the carpeting. I think I bought a replacement sensor only rather than the entire system that it is connected to. It cost 25$ after shipping from rockauto.com. I know I found some directions doing a google search that had pictures and stuff. Best of luck!

#406 of 447 Battery not Dead but acts like it, Won't Start 2000 Impala
Dec 03, 2011 (5:55 pm)
I noticed that when the weather started getting colder, the car was slower to start. I replaced the battery and it seemed to help. After about a month, it started doing it again. All the lights work, key fob, horn, everything. It turns over a few times very slowly, then nothing. If I wait a few seconds and try, it will turn over again a couple times. Finally after trying it it will slowly turn over then start. It only seems to do this when it's cold (today it was 65 degrees out and it started fine). Any ideas? Could I just need a stronger battery or is something more?
