SOURCE: The radio stopped working on

The key reminder and back up sensors on these cars are by both a computer behind the rear seat back and the radio itself, these two things communicate with eachirher through what is called a dash integration module. Concurrency your stereo isn't working, the popping sounds and that your battery is being drained, the first most likely cause is that the radio itself or the wiring going to it has a short or is otherwise damaged. The electrical systems in your car is extremely complex, I would strongly suggest taking it to a dealer or a shop that is experienced with your model and/or has access to factory repair manuals.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The door sensor surely is worn out. It's the little button that the door hits when shut close. If it's worn out it may trigger that it's open even if it's closed that's why the chime goes on. I strongly suggest that you replace the door sensor to resolve the problem.

Try putting some padding too on the slide door so that when the door hits the sensor it will be pushed. That is if you like the idea and not spending for the door sensor.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SOURCE: open door chimes and keys left in in car chimes

Door left open chime is operated by your interior light switch. It is located in a few places on different vehicles. Often in the door jam at the front or low down on the pillar at the rear of the door. You will notice a little black rubber boot and when you push it it goes in and out. That is your interior light switch.

SOURCE: where is the fuse for the door ajar chime in a

Water intrusion causes f150's fuse boxes to corrupt. This is porbably your problem. Mine does the same thing, if you disconnect the fuse to the chime, you will lose your windshield wipers as well.. Check and see if your windshield wipers turn on even with no key in the ignition. Soon your fuses will start blowing left and right. You prbably need a new fuse box. Don't let anyone talk you into replacing it with a used one. My mechanic has replaced it with a used one 5 times to no avail. They were all bad. Afetr paying him almost $300 he refuses to work on it anymore. Even though it still isn't fixed. I even offered to pay the difference for a new fuse box. I have basically been screwed out of $300. So take my advise just pay the $400 for a new one from Ford to save yourself a headache.

2005 Chrysler T&C I had a short in my trailer wiring. Now the dash does not lite and none of the instruments display. Brake lights and turn signals dont work.I have checked all fuses in main fusebox.

You say you had a short. That short may have heated up to the point where it melted, and also melted the wires in the harness. This now shorts everything. Start from the rear of car and work forward. Look for melted wires. If you find the problem, don't cut all wires, do one wire at a time. The first short should be in the area of all the damage, and may have started buy a wire that was rubbing up against metal to the point where it shorted out. Take your time. Good Luck Friend.

Got in my 09 Impala after work & no display or sound from my radio. Went to the gas station stopped opened the door no door chime? I have no clue what the problem is, the dash indicators work?

It seems to me you should check your fuses, they burn all the time. There inside your car most of the times under or near the steering wheel somewhere in that erea

Air conditioning goes on and off

One of the most common reasons for then the Ac compressor to shut off/down is a low freon level. Does it blow cold air while it is in operation? If the freon level is ok, you could also have a cycling switch failure. It would be uncommon for the compressor to operarte normally for a while and then not work properly if the freon level is adequate

My radio displays calibrate but works for a short time

It has lost the signal for the computer. It happens. It has to be reprogrammed. Some garages can do it. Most likely a dealer.

Reset passlock code

Is your Impala a 2000, 2001, or 2002? This seems to be a common problem in those model years...much like its predecessor the GM VATS (Vehicle Anti-Theft System). While the VATS had a permanent (albeit unapproved) solution, no suck workaround appears to be available for the Passlock system. Some websites offer a correction "module" that looks to be a hit-or-miss solution. I did find the following procedure on a forum, and it seems to be reliable. Here goes:
If your car has been sitting while you were at work or home or in the store, and you are coming out to leave, follow steps 1-6.

If you just had the SECURITY SYSTEM lock you out of the ignition system, you will have to wait the 10 minutes for it to reset and allow the ignition control module to interact with the system. Once the 10 minutes have passed from the ACTIVE SECURITY STATUS, follow steps 1-6. Do not try to shortcut this as it wont work.

If it is raining, you can close your door, just not all the way. Close it all the way and open the door latch without pushing the door open. This will keep you dry.

+++++STEPS+++++ 1.) OPEN YOUR DRIVERS DOOR AND SIT DOWN. 2.) PLACE KEY IN IGNITION, WAIT FOR CHIME. (3 seconds is what I usually wait) 3.) TURN IGNITION 1 CLICK RIGHT (TO THE ACC POSITION) AND STOP! Do not continue to ON and START yet. WAIT ATLEAST 5 SECONDS 4.) AFTER 5 seconds has passed, TURN KEY TO ON and STOP, DO NOT CONTINUE TO START YET! 5.) WAIT AND WATCH. With your drivers door open, here is what you will see and hear = Your notification will signal DOOR ADJAR, then the BATTERY light, then the SECURITY light, during which you will hear the chime sound as if you just started the car. 6.) AFTER YOU SEE THE SECURITY light switch back to DOOR ADJAR or Battery, and after the CHIME has stopped, you can turn the key to start and voila!

It has worked every time for me and 5 of my friends. This whole process takes about 20-30 seconds, but it sure as hell beats 30 minutes, as GM refuses to compensate my time lost to their vehicle\'s design flaws.

RECAP: 1.) Open driver door, sit down 2.) Insert key in ignition, wait for chime 3.) Once chime starts wait 3 seconds 4.) Turn key to ACC position WAIT atleast 5 seconds 5.) After 5 seconds turn key to the ON postion and wait for the security light to switch back to Battery or DOOR adjar, and the chime to stop (Do not try to START if the chime is still sounding) 6.) Once chime stops and Security light has passed, You may now complete the turn to START and it will start.

Note: This is not a permanent workaround, but it will buy you some time, I can almost guarantee it will work for most if not all people, almost all the time.

Belief it or not your problem may be at one off your electric fans, also a possibility your a/c compressor coil shorted, so disconnect your a/c condenser fan and your a/c compressor check them for short and replace has needed, here is the logic every time you turn your heater on defrost it will cycle your a/c and it will blow your fuse, there is a circuit breaker on fuse box by left kick panel way up make sure it is in good condition push on it and you will feel it click if trigger, is not spring back it may be at fault to, replace it. good luck
