#102 of 446 2002 impala wont start
Nov 06, 2006 (5:30 pm)
ok here is the deal I went to put a system in my 2002 this morning (I have a stock radio Iím using a line out converter, if that makes a difference)anyway I go to start the car but the only thing that happened was my cluster went on it lit up and showed me how much gas I had and the message center was on but my voltage wasnít showing anything I couldnít lock or unlock my doors (using the power lock) also I couldnít unlock my trunk keep in mind my car is in ACC at this point also I could put it in gear without pushing in the brake. I have no clue what this could be I checked all fuses and they were ok.i also checked the codes and nothing showed up.and yes the battery is fully charged.
#104 of 446 2003 Impala won't turn over
Nov 10, 2006 (5:31 am)
Recently, my 2003, with 70,000 miles, impala hasn't been starting properly. The engine won't turn over, and if it does, it quits right after she starts. Then after a few more cranks of the key she's up and running no problem. This also doesn't happen all the time, but enough to make me worry. Also, from time to time the impala will act like someone has activated the unlock/lock buttons on the keyfob. It could be that i'm bumping the buttons as i get in/out of the car, but that seems unlikely.
Does this sounds like the dreaded BCM or does GM have another way of taking my money?

Hey, One year ago I had the similar problem with my Impala. I would charge the battery, and drive it around my little German town of Vilseck, park it back in to the carport, and the next morning the car battery would be dead. I took it to the opel dealership in Amberg, GE. I spoke with Mike about the problem. It took him a week to get to the bottom of the problem. My amp went out and was causing a short. I don't know how, I am a Soldier not a subject matter expert (SME) on cars. I have not had one single problem with the battery going dead since.
#106 of 446 My car want start sometimes
Nov 11, 2006 (3:04 am)
I have a 2000 Chevy Impala, I will drive the car for about four or five days back and forth to work. I can get out of the car, lock the doors using the fob, or the in car button, and go out to start the car again and everything works, but the car will not start, i.e. the engine will not turn over. I let it set for a few days and hit the fob button to get in the car to start it and it will just magically start. I think it is in the security system somewhere, but who know with today cars? If this sounds familiar please let me know what you have done to fix it.
#107 of 446 06 Impala courtesy light problems
Nov 11, 2006 (8:53 pm)
I have an 06 2LT that has a problem with the interior courtesy lights ( dome lights ) when the door is opened the lights under the dash come on, but the dome light, the lights under the mirror, and the door panel lights won't come on. I have tried to turn them on using the dimmer switch on the dash, but it won't turn them on either. You can turn them all on manually and they work by pushing the buttons on the dome light, and mirror lights, but they won't work by opening the door. Is this a common problem or is something turned off somewhere? Its just odd that none of them work when you open the door. I have checked the fuse and it is ok. Any suggestions?

#109 of 446 A/C Heater control problems
Nov 17, 2006 (6:54 pm)
I recently purchased a 2000 Impala Base. The AC/Heater fans only work on level #5. I assume that the control is bad. Is replacing the control hard to do yourself? I also am having the turn signal problem (not working). Is that something that could be replaced at the same time since the dash would be taken apart too, or is that an even bigger project? Any ideas or assistance would be great.
