2006 impala replace transmission no gear indicator

I just replaced the 3.5 engine and transmission in my 2006 Impala with salvage yard pieces. Now the engine will not crank and the transmission gear selector does not indicate which gear the transmission is in. I cycles through all the gear correctly but no indication on the dash which gear it is in.

SOURCE: transmission downshifts erroneously

Sounds like the computer that controls the transmission.....but don't just go buy one because there is a diagnostic route.I just worked on two of those earlier this year,and the computer can drive you crazy.92 is pre OBD 2 or OBD anything,codes are pulled from the car manually.Passenger side interior,front kick panel.Remove the kick panel,locate BLUE colored TWO WIRE connector.It isnt connected to anything.Take a paper clip or wire,bend in a U,insert into connector.Turn the ignition switch on,engine off.This throws the trans computer into self diagnostic mode.Count the number of times...on the dash...the "S" light flashes.This is the code number.Now you look up the code number on a code chart.If there are NO CODES,the "S" light just comes on for 2 seconds when you turn the ignition on,then the "S" light goes back out.Thats normal operation,no codes.If no codes,you are back to square one.Welcome to code diagnostics.Remove paper clip.IF,there are any codes,they must be identified on a code chart,as a diagnostic trouble code for say...the shift solenoids,is a definite solution to this problem.Honda trans's are problematic on solenoids,shift and line pressure.So,check for codes,diagnose any codes and repair them.If no codes,or codes have been repaired,and the same symptom still persists,then it's time to look at the computer,or PCM.The PCM is located either under the carpet on the passenger side front,near the firewall,or under one of the front seats.Remove the PCM,take to a clean bench,and dissasemble.Remove outer cover and look,don't touch,look for a capacitor that may have exploded.I had very similar problems on one....the gear selector indicator would indicate Park and Overdrive....AT THE SAME TIME,when actually in Overdrive,and the car would failsafe to 3rd gear.It was a bad PCM,but did not see an exploded capacitor inside that one.Good Luck...Hondas,gotta love em.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevolet Impala Accesory Belt Replacement

No special tools are required in order to replace your belt. Your vehicle is equipped with a serpentine belt system which means that it uses one big belt to drive all of the accessories. With that being said, all you have to do is place the closed end of a wrench (not sure exactly what size) over the bolt on the front of the tensioner pulley and use it as a lever to push the tensioner away from the belt. once the tension is relieved continue to hold the wrench in place and use your free hand to pull the belt away from the tensioner pulley. After the belt is clear of the pulley slowly let off on the wrench and remove the belt from the remaining pullies. Reverse the process to reinstall the new belt.

You need to check your main fuses under the hood first and then check them under the driver side dash board.

What transmissions interchange

I believe 92 to 98 on your transmission. GM put a lot of those transmissions in cars. You just have to get one with the same engine size as yours. A salvage yard should be able to tell you..

2006 impala transmission replaced but no indicator

Might flash computer. Sounds like security is locking ignition out thinking something was stolen. This happens when car parts are changed sometimes.

2005 Impala gear shift button popped out. I have to put it back in each time I need to shift to D, R, etc. How can I remedy this problem without replacing the whole gearshift?

Re-attaching the knob to the gearshift is the key...Look for a hole on the lower section of the knob...if you cannot see it...remove the bottom chrome piece from the knob, (pry apart carefully not to scratch the chrome should see the small hole normally includes a small allen insert screw or Phillips screw...must be screwed in to the gear shift shaft to hold in place...if you cannot compare...visit a local salvage yard to experiment..."Pic A Part" is a national self help salvage yard. Hope this helps. If the button does not stay in the gear shift can replace the knob (with button) only...remove the knob as described above. Hope this helps.

No movement and grinding in all gears

Grinding means the Torque Converter, Planetary gears or friction disks inside the trans are beyond salvage. Check your trans fluid for metal bits.

The linkage could have a small amount to do with it, but usually it is either in gear or not. The binding on the linkage could have been a symptom of the insides of the trans breaking.

The trans are not made to make any noise, so noise means it is messed up. You only can check the dipstick now.

What you can do to save money. Buy a Salvage part like from or They ship, get you choices from several Salvage yards and at least some warranty from some places.

Or get a partial rebuild, replacing the bad parts only. Or it may be time to make a car change.

Please rate my info.

I need to replace my driver side mirror on my 2004 chevy impala. Can you tell me how I must do this and where is a good place to find an inexpensive replacement? Thank you

This is a common need...(replacing an outside mirror due to damage:) You can locate how to remove the old one by finding the panel inside of your drivers door...usually a small pop off panel...inside you will need to pull out the rubber inslulation in order to see the 3 - 10mm bolt heads...all three bolt heads need to be removed...also unplug the electric connection that runs from the inside base of the mirror...your best bet to find a replacement...(including color) is a salvage yard...probably $25 to $35...You can contact most salvage yards to pull this mirror for you, but your best bet is to visit the salvage yard yourself...and dis-assemble one for yourself...not a lengthy repair...hope this helps...:)

2001 impala will not shift into overdrive

your overdrive clutch hub has gone out/worn out.
It can be replaced or you could have the whole transmission re-built or replaced with a low mileage one from the salvage yard , etc at a lower cost..(which is what I did)
This is common on these trannys.
