Any information on my impala
I have a 2002 impala that thignition went out
on..replace it n now only the dash panels cone on,
no radio. Wil not start but will crank n run for
secounfs if u jump it with starter
Oh yeah the car has 140,000 mikes n has a 3.8. With no problems until this
Have you checked the fuse,s and starter relay?
Yes everything looks good...under the dash under steering columns there s a ton of Eire n most look like something Chevy didn't do them selves tho I may b eorong
I'm open n wilin to any sugguestiin, I mean I know its a impola with a lot of problems I was just wandering if anyone has ran into this problem
Malibu and impalas are known for bad iginition switches and has had recalls on them,since you have replaced it should not be the issue now,but hince there have been issues where it has damaged the ECM before it is repaired,
Also there's a lot of where running across steerin column dosentvloik fact orey but I'm not sure. It all sites into a black bock that seems like everything go to
Imma b honest man I don't even know what the ECM is. Prsciaye ya help
The ECM is the computer,
Have ya ever seen a lot of wire all spliced n stuff under steering column
Damn ok that sucks...just curious why does it run when I jump it off
N what's with all the extra wires n the Lil box
Its crazy, one min car runs good, next ya try crank it n ignition wouldn't even turn. Replaced ignion n most dash lights light up but no radio n won't crank, uncless ya jump the start which it it does in few secs
Don,t know without seeing the wire,s you are talking about,and you said you crank it by jumping the starter,this sends fire to the engine by bypassing the ECM,that is why it cut,s right back off.
Aww hell thanks man makes since... How much ya reckon one would b
Could I send ya a pick of the wires real quick n ya give me an educated guesses on how fucked I am
Nvm I don't see how to send pics on this first time on
Yes,send pic may help me,and the ecm would be cheaper to get a used one,just make sure it matches numbers with the one you have in car.
Ok bet thanks
Ok bet thankshow do ya post pics lol
Oh I'm on a phone I don't Ihave that lol
Your Impala is included in the latest GM ignition switch recall. Visit your local Chevy Dealer and have it replaced for free. HTH. -Jim
Even though I bought the car off my sister I'll be able to take it there? N thanks for the advice
Doesn't matter where you bought it or how old the car is either. Safety recalls, such as this, never ever expire! HTH. -Jim
Ok thanks alot
You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim
