We are having these same problems since the car was 2 years old,my husband was told you had to pull the dash,can you tell us how to get to it and where it is? I am so annoyed with this car,I bought a new car because my old car kept breaking down,I am still breaking down paying 480 a month plus full coverage insurance,I am so annoyed.

If you are having BCM problems it is probably best to have the dealer replace it because the BCM has to be programmed with a special computer. You can not reprogram the BCM with a standard OBD II code reader.
When I had my BCM replaced back in 2005, the dealer charged me about $400.00. I contacted Chevy Customer service because the care was less then 3 years old but I just exceeded the 36k mileage warranty. Chevy agreed to reimberse me for half the cost.
My 02 Impala is a lemon, and from the posts that I am reading about the newer models, Chevy is still growing more lemons at the factory!
#415 of 447 02 Impala Rear Defogger Problems
Dec 08, 2011 (8:58 am)
I have an 02 Impala and my rear defogger stopped working. I checked the breaker and it was ok. I replaced the defogger relay and it still doesn't work.
Does anyone else have this problem?

I did take it to a dealer,who said the computer said BCM was good,my radio still doesn't work ,back defrost on and off,battery goes dead occasionally and the key chimes,they said a bad battery,was just checked a couple days earlier was told it was fine and it was bought less than a year ago when the same thing was going on.They said I needed a new radio also but it works fine when it works,plays awhile then shuts off or stays on even after you open the door.

ive had the same problem for years with my 2000 Chevy. Although last week surprise it happened again! I immediately investigated once again and checked the starter fuse under the hood and other fuses. They felt a little loose so i secured them the best i could and it started right up!!! Coincidence?? im not sure but ill find out. Also it helps to turn the key very slowly allowing all the electrical to start up whlile u hear the tone of the car...and then start it. I noticed this atleast gets it started faster!!

I am having a problem with my 2006 Chev Impala LS
I just had a total tranny rebuild in which my car was good for a week, now my gauges have went haywire and the engine is cutting out and it sounds like the door locks are being locked/unlocked. Has anyone any idea what this could be?
