2003 Chevy Impala starting issue

Will not tunr over but I have power. It happened once in the summer and then eventually started. I did not have the problem since. It is now doing it again. It will not start in neutral. New battery, new starter, alternator tested and is fine. Sometimes putting it in neutral, then back to park, it will start.

    Thank you for your input. For anyone's information, the technical name for a neutral safety switch on the Impala is the CONTROL ASSEMBLY, which is why no parts stores could find one for me! Also, they are almost four hundred dollars. Whether I replace the assembly or the ignition key cylinder ($500), I'm gonna be BROKE! (LOL)

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is faulty. Slamming the shifter into Park has temporarily solved the condition for some, but the switch may have to be replaced.

    I order from gmpartsdirect.com. It has saved me quite a bit of money. Sometimes as much as 50%. Make sure the problem is properly diagnosed, though, and give gmpartsdirect.com a call, so they can verify the correct part. I don't see it listed when I searched for CONTROL ASSEMBLY, so they might have it listed as something else.

How can I bypass the security code


Why do think the key security is bad? If you still have a factory key, this is not the problem...if no factory key, you can take your VIN number or original key to GM dealer to get new key that they will program for you...Check for dirty battery connections:)

For the last five years that I have owned my 2004 Chevy Impala I have had problems with it not wanting to start at certain times, usually and mostly during the summer months, but not all the time. I get...


I had the same thing happen to my impala. It was the sensor in the ignition switch for security purposes. I had too many keys on my key ring, and it caused the ignition switch to not read my key right. Once I had the ignition switch repaired, I don't put so many keys on my key ring. It cost me about $300.

Do this, when the vibration starts, place your hand over the area and indeed verify the location. Next, check the area for loose anything that'll cause the vibration. Maybe that will help. Good Luck.

Leave the key in the on position for 20 to 30 minutes without trying to start the vehicle. In most cases a lose of power to the computer has happened and the security must be reset.

Passlock Ignition - Chevrolet knows this is a problem, but their answer is "The Passlock Ignition is not our product, so we do not know how to fix it." Their fix??? Putting in a new ignition. Ouch! We had it done a year ago. Rumor is it will happen again eventually, and we are already dealing with a plethora of issues with our 05 Impala....Enough issues that I, a long-time Chevy owner, will not buy another chevy product. It is one thing for a bad model to come out...I can understand that...What i can not understand is GM not standing behind their shoddy product.... Poor customer service means I'm saying goodbye to Chevrolet.
