2001 Chevy Impala won't start

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.

2002 chevy impala won't start if I jump starter


Is the security light on or flashing ?
The yellow wire goes from the key switch to the neutral safety switch, then to the starter. So bypassing the neutral safety would make the starter crank the engine, but would have nothing to do with the rest of the engine.

2003 Chevy Impala, running hot. Changed fan shroud because cooling fan wouldn't turn on, switched out fan relays, no check engine light. Cooling fan still will not turn on.


Would turn the key on no need to start it and unplug the ect engine coolant temp sensor. If fans come on then suspect a faulty etc which may not turn on the engine light. Which engine is in the vehicle so I can help locate the ect which is usually by the thermostat housing.

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.
