SOURCE: SPEED GAUGE DON'T WORK CORRECTLY

The speedometer in the dash operates off of an electrical signal that it receives from a sensor that is attached to the transmission. There is either a bad connection at the sensor or the sensor is bad. You should not need to disturb the dashboard.

there is a computer chip in your key this is not actually a chip but in the ignition its self has thin white security wires and one of them is braking if you take your car to the shop they will tell you it will cost around 300.00 to fix but the new ignition will cost you around 100 dollars and to get the new key made you will have to take new key the dealer and buy new key with chip in it this will cost around 85 dollars so all and all it will cost you 185 and time and energy of course Tools needed Wheel puller, backing plate compressor , snap ring pliers, Philips head screw driver. Long story short pull wheel and change ignition cylinder get new key made at dealer

SOURCE: 2005 impala ls the abs light and the traction control light comes

You'll need to have the codes read from the computer. You will have a code that indicates one of the front wheel sensors is bad. This could be the case, but they are very expensive as they are built into the wheel bearing assemblies. It is more likely that the wiring harness between the frame and the part of the front spindle that holds the harness, has broken internally. It is a very common problem and can be repaired with a new wiring harness section or by tracking down the fault and repairing it.

I replaced the battery on a 2005 chevy impala. how do i clear the "service battery charging system" text and red battery light on the dash?


That sounds like not the battery. It possibly the alternator.
-Use a volt meter to test when it's running. If it's below 13 volts
the alternator is bad.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

2005 Chevy Impala. Headlights go slightly dimmer, then normal, also the dashboard lights work sometimes... Other times they all work, the next time half of them, etc. The bright lights work, then all of...


The Consumer Report doesn't seem to like them either. They have them listed as the "Worst of the Worst." It however, would appear that there is a ground problem going on with the dimming of the lights. You would want to be looking for any rusty ground connections connecting to the units. Bad connectors can be at fault also. It sounds like trading it off would be practical. However, make sure you look in the 2011 April addition of the Consumer reports in the back for reliable cars to avoid another lemon.

2001 chevy impala security light keeps coming on


This is a problem with chevy vehicles that have the system theft light. after a couple of years of using the key, the lock tumblers inside the ignition switch tend to wear out and so causing the system to think it's being stolen. Now you have to put the key in and turn the ignition to the on position, without cranking the car and leave it for 10 minutes until the theft light goes out. Very annoying especially if you're in a hurry. The dealer cost to repair the ignition switch goes for about $600-$800. that includes re-teaching the key.

2001 Chevy impala had ignition switch replaced, once i turn the key, "security" flashes on screen and car won't start. How do I fix this so that the car will start?


Turn the key to "on" and let the light flash. It should stop flashing after about ten to twenty minutes. Once the light is on steady, turn it off, then start the car. I usually put another battery on jumper cables attached to the cars battery so it does not run down and die before the system re-arms.
