Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala
My 2001 Chevy Impala wouldn't start and engine wouldn't turn over. Key would turn but nothing happened. No electrical, lights, radio-nothing. Alarm remote would not work and power door locks wouldn't work either. Car was completely dead except for check engine light was on and like a very low "power up" sound with three clicks coming from the passenger side dash/glove box.
If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

I had same problem off and on for years and replaced many things. Problem finally stopped when I began using only the factory-made key that came with the car. A key I had made on my own still causes the problem.
