Chevy Impala Security System

Asked by Nov 13, 2014 at 03:37 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I took my 2001 Chevy Impala to get the coolant system repaired. When the repairs were
done, my security system would not let the car start. I had it towed from the repair shop
to an alarm shop and they could not get it started either. The alarm shop said there may
be a problem with my computer. I don't understand. My car was starting fine until I took it
to the first shop. Now I'm being advised to go to a deal, which I can't afford. I would like to
at least have an idea what's wrong with my car and what to do as to not get taken again.
