#434 of 446 2000 Impala - Possibly another BCM victim

Possibly another BCM victim here. My step-daughter's 2000 Impala (3.4L) has been acting up for a while now. No easy to get to codes, but with a deeper look, have a code B2648, Ambient Light Sensor Circuit Voltage High. Of course this falls under the BCM arena. Not wanting to shell out $500 on a car that's up for sale. Especially when it doesn't really effect the rest of the car, other than the 'Service Vehicle Soon' light that stays on constantly, which I will have to explain to potential buyers and hope they believe me. I say the rest of the car is unaffected, but if not started for a few days, it does have a starting issue. When trying to start, the interior lights all flash quickly and clicking is heard. My step-daughter, has figured out that if she pumps the accelerator repeatedly while holding the key over, it eventually starts. But it does sound horrible while doing so. If started often, no issue. GM really should warranty this for us. A new part should work... and shouldn;t require flashing to make it work. Should come with complimentary flashing if you ask me. I can buy one from Autozone for half the price. Frustrating.
#435 of 446 2001 Impala electrical ticking
Aug 19, 2013 (2:30 pm)
I have a 2001 Impala.
It runs perfectly fine, until the temperature reaches about 25 degrees Celsius.
Then the ticking happens. There was a ticking on the passenger side, which would cause my cabin lights to flicker. But I figured out that it was the battery relay in the panel.
But there is still a ticking and if feels like it is coming out of the steering column. I can feel it in my steering wheel when i have my hands on it.
That ticking causes my radio to not work. a message shows up saying cal error and then locked. Also, my running lights flicker unless i turn my headlights on, then it stops and when i am driving there is a loud tick unless i put my foot on the break. And the biggest problem this causes is that my fan to cool my engine stops working, and i need to drive at least 60 km/h to keep if from overheating. If i am stuck in traffic on a hot summer day my car will over heat.
I hope someone knows how to solve this problem !!

I now have a similar problem with my 2003, but is is intermittant and effects the AC and cruise control only, as far as I can determine. Do know if I pull the 10 amp ac/cruise fuse the blower will run in the #5 position?
Based on your experiences can you give me any ideas?

After much head scratching I have come to the conclusion that there must be one or more loose ground connections. Sometimes the problem goes away when I hit a bump in the road. Does anybody know where the G201 and G202 grounds are physcially located?
#438 of 446 2000 Chevy Impala Head/Fog Lights
Sep 15, 2013 (3:37 am)
I have a odd question about my Head/Fog lights for my car. I was sitting in my house late at night when I saw what I think was my fog lights since they were more yellow kind of like if it was my turn signal or fog lights when they started to flicker by themselves. Now a little back story I have been having issues with my turn signal not working and to get them to work I hit my hazards and then my turn signal will start to work again. Not sure if the two are connected but the lights just randomly flickering by themselves is new. Has anyone experienced or heard about this happening?
#439 of 446 Instrument Cluster and Turn signals
Sep 21, 2013 (10:40 am)
So my 2001 impala is having some problems electrically (I think). At first when I would crank the car up it would say service engine soon. When I would go to put my blinker on, a sound from the instrument cluster would start and suddenly my abs, my parking brake, and air bag light would come on. I replaced the hazard switch and the turn signals are still not working but the hazard lights work. It has new front brakes and plenty of brake fluid. The brakes work just fine. Yesterday the headlights had come one when they weren't suppose to and the interior lights weren't working for about a minute. The Seat belt light also lit up long after I had already put it on. This hasn't happened again since yesterday. Could this be a problem with the instrument cluster itself?? HELP!!!!

Are you drivers having any start problems? Car security reset issues? Have the vehicle's BCM (body control module) checked out. Normally you have to change it. Cost about $400. The BCM controls most of your lighting and cars electrical functions. Hope this helps somwhat.

Change out the turn signal lever. It will solve your head light and turn signal issues
