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,

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.

Your Impala is included in the latest GM ignition switch recall. Visit your local Chevy Dealer and have it replaced for free. HTH. -Jim

Doesn't matter where you bought it or how old the car is either. Safety recalls, such as this, never ever expire! HTH. -Jim
