Assuming the battery is fully charged, the connections from the battery red to starter motor & relay are tight, and black terminal from battery to engine block (or chassis) are tight, and cables &/or terminals are not corroded, and the battery electrolyte levels are not low to expose the battery lead plates, the symptoms you describe sounds like a main fuse panel issue. Some cars have two fuse panels; one beneath the driver or passenger console, another one beneath the hood in engine area. If fuses are OK, then not enough electrons are passing through when you turn the key, meaning something is acting as a resistor to prevent free flow of electrons (loose connections or corroded terminals or cables). When you pop open the caps off the battery, each cell holds 2 volts. If the lead plates are exposed, that cell will hold less than 2 volt. Replenish with distilled water or battery electrolyte (sold at some auto parts store, so call around instead of driving all over town). If you have a battery charger & digital voltage meter, the battery should read 12.6 to 13 volts for fully charge. If below this, touch black probe on voltage meter to negative side of battery, then dip red probe on each of battery cell's electrolyte. Write down the voltage reading of each cell, then hook up the battery charger let charge for half an hour or so until battery shows 12.6 or higher reading after unplugging the charger. With charger unplugged, take digital voltage meter and take 2nd voltage reading of each cell, dipping red probe into electrolyte while black probe touches negative side of battery. Write down voltage reading of each cell. Wait half an hour to 45 minutes, then take a 3rd voltage reading of each cell. If there's a drop in voltage reading on one cell from the 2nd time, this cell is not holding a charge and its draining power from the adjacent cells, resulting in eventually leaving a dead battery after it had been parked over the weekend. Replace the battery. This method of diagnosis to check battery condition is more accurate than a load test. I've seen batteries that will pass a load test, yet battery goes dead after the car (or semi truck or bus) had been parked for 2 or 3 days because the faulty cell had drained power from the adjacent cells next to it. In semi trucks & buses, when the battery goes dead, it continues to drain the power from other batteries that are hooked in parallel or series to other batteries.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy Impala won't start

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.

SOURCE: check engine light on

You cannot reset the check engine light any other way than using a scan tool. Some auto parts stores will scan the vehicle for free then at least you will know the area of the fault.

Open hood. on top of headlight assembly you will find 2 small bolts. I believe a 10mm. socket should fit. Take the 2 bolts, out and remove complete assembly.

SOURCE: A light comes on in my car that says oil pressure

If the light is only turning on during acceleration or deceleration and then goes off, this is normal. If the light is constant, and you are sure you have oil that is up to the "full" or "max" level on the dipstick while hot, then it might point to a faulty oil pump or worn gaskets that will no longer prevent the oil from staying in place in the engine. Is this light accompanied by a check engine light. If so what is the code. You may also have a faulty oil sensor. Hope this helps

I have a 2000 Chevy Impala and no interior or exterior lights will come on and will not start. I have tried to jump the car with no luck, what could be my problem?


Check your connections at the battery, they should be so tight you cant move them with your hands, they also needs to clean, fresh shiny metal visible. Also some cars have a giant 50 amp or so fuse in the engine bay that isolates the battery from the rest of the car, check to see if its fried. In fact check all your relays to make sure they are there, and all the fuses including the ones in the trunk, the glovebox area, and the ones in the engine bay.

Probably not. Gm had has had antitheft ssecurity issues FOREVER and never owned up to the problem. Try this link for some help on the security problem.

Also, GM cars from like 2000 to 2004 had problems with the radio. I just had this same kind of thing happen in my girlfriends 01 impala. The radio was draining the battery and causing the battery to keep failing. No start issues. Car alarm always going off. All sorts of lights appearing on the dash. Low tire pressure light, check engine, brake light, ABS. You get the idea. Put in an aftermarket radio and all is well now. If your radio is acting funny, you might want to look into that.

2007 Chevy Silverado when my check engine light comes on remote start won't work after a couple days check engine light goes off remote starter works?


It's a safety feature. For example, if there is no oil pressure when you start the engine, you could not see that unless you were in the car and could spin a bearing or seize the engine by starting it remotely and letting it run unattended. So when the check engine light is on, there is something not working properly with the engine/engine management system and it wants you in the car where you can see the guages and turn the engine off immediately if there's a serious problem.

2007 chevy impala wont crank. ran fine turned off, went in house came back out, nothing, doorlocks sound like they are locking and unlocking but arent goin up and down, then you cant get the key out, wait...


Could be the battery. The lights take very little power to run but other things such as doors locking takes more juice. Keyswitch unsure unless you have security system built into the car. Batteries can work one minute and then not the next. I would check battery first.

Service Throttle Control


It sounds like these things are all related. When the a computer sees a problem in the Electronic throttle system, it will dissable traction control, and give the reduced engine power alert because the powertrain computer does not know the value of throttle postion.
Codes will need to be scanned in the computersto begin diagnosis.
