2003 Chevy Impala won't start after refueling


There is a couple of problems with Impala's. Crank relay ($15) is unreliable. Lift hood it's on the passenger side under plastic panel and just plugs in. There are some issues with the pass code. Rather than take to a dealer, first place key in ignition and turn to the on position and wait 10 minutes. Often the pass code corrects. There are some issues with the ignition switch in particular with a heavy set of keys. Try blowing some compressed air into the keyhole and using just the ignition key by itself.

Not sure what you mean by a head unit, but best thing to do is to start taking it apart again 'till the key is again free...then look to see what was binding.
