2002 Chevy Impala security system

Asked by Nov 15, 2016 at 10:14 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Alright so I have a 2002 Chevy Impala 3.4
v6. The security light is on when you turn
the key to on and no it doesn't stop it from
running runs and goes fine but the radio
says What time it is currently and to the
right of that it says "LOCKED"..... Now I
have seen where other ppl say there's just
says LOC but mine dosnt. I tried the hold
down channel presets 1and 3 & 2 and 4 I
think that's what they where. But they
didn't do anything anyway can't use any
buttons on the radio can't go into the
vehicle settings nothing... Is there a way to
make the radio work? I tried pulling that
cluster/whatever fuse and it didn't do
anything. Anyone know anything?

Check the following link. This vehicle has the infamous GM Passlock security system. Hopefully this will give you some insight: https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-c847_ds434025

Also, you're Impala is currently under recall for the ignition switch. Contact your local Chevy Dealer and see if you can get it fixed for free under the recall. HTH. -Jim
