I doubt it has anything to do with the key switch.
If the security system is the cause, the security warning light should be on.
Someone would need to check the circuit between the key switch and the starter when it fails to crank to find the problem.

Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.

04 Impala 3.8 horn blows low volume and sounds weird


sounds like the diaphragm in the horn is worn/dried out. check to see if you have battery voltage to the horn with either a test light or voltmeter and the horn has a good ground as if not then the horn won`t operate correctly. if these are good replace horn.

I have an 2002 Chevy Impala, when I go to crank my car it won't do anything. I have to play with the ignition by turning the key back and forth in order for it to crank. what is that?


Why do so many people ask about an Alternator ?

It has nothing to do with the starting system

You said you have to play with the key & ignition switch
that may be a place to start

2003 Lincoln ls v-8 cruise control won't engage. Light won't come on or anything when I hit the button. Everything else work fine.


My 2001 Lincoln ls cruise control will not work. Put in a new clockspring and that did not fix it. radio controls and horn work but the air bag light stays on continually after starting. The lights on the cruise side will go on an off -I have bought that part to replace but don't want to put on if that is not the problem.

Starter not turning over?
Controlled by integrated starter selenoid. SOMETIMES, tapping the starter will cause the selenoid to operate.
Assume that voltage (12Vdc) is getting to the starter when the key is in the start position (take 2 people and a voltmeter to check it).

Is pushing the power button the only way to turn the radio off in a 2001 Impala? I'm use to cars turning completely off once the key is out. Also just recently, my impala did that security thing where...


My girlfriend just had the same thing happen in her 01 Impala. New radio and 150 dollar radio wire harness. If you dont fix it, you'll keep draining the battery till it's broken too.

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.

2002 chevy impala won't start...


Check battery with a volt meter and see what kind of volts are in there. (should be at least 12) If lower, re-charge battery and clean terminals. (make sure you know radio code before removing terminal ends, and how to restore radio). Quick way to check battery is to leave the door open and look at the dome light, If it dims substantially when you attempt to crank engine, battery is likely low.
