3 Answers

2002 chev impala, will not start. fuel pump and gauge not working on dash. When i go to start all lights go out on dash and than they will come back on in 3 or 4 seconds?

It started with the battery light coming on and off while driving, than no dome lights. I go and disconnect the battery for 5 minites and hook it back up and now everything works except it will not crank over and start.

Start by checking the battery voltage, while doing nothing and while you try to start your engine
a good battery should read over 12 volts
when cranking the engine it should not drop to less than 9 volts cold and 10 volts warm
if battery is good
check all the electrical connections very well

Have the battery tested if no good replace. Check for power at the starter cable and then while someone holds the key in the crank position check for power at the trigger wire of the starter. If you have power but no crank or click then you may have a bid starter or the engine is seized. If no power on the tarter little wire which comes from the ignition switch make sure you fuses and relay is good and that your ignition switch is working. If the battery tests good have your alternator checked as well.

2002 Chev Impala. Battery light started to flash off and on and charging gauge stopped working. Now no dome light or power trunk.


Either you're battery is going dead slowly. Or bad cables. Check both. If that doesn't fix, bigger problems...

2001 Chev Malibu. Turn key on to start car, won't start. No warning lights on no lights on gauge panel. Radio works, dome light work.


check the ground leg to your engine.. it runs off the neg. battery terminal. will connect to frame and engine.. pull it off, wire brush it put it back.. you radio will work, 'cause it draws much less current, and is grounded in dash.

My 2002 impala gas gauge is not working can you


Well Sarah, the fuel sending unit is built onto the pump, which is located in the tank. It is common for a tooth to break off of the reastat (sp) part of the sending unit. You will have to replace the pump assembly which requires dropping the fuel tank. Hope this helps, TJ

Faulty gas gauge


Have a 2001 chev and it does the same thing. It is a common problem. It is a faulty in tank sender, not the fuel pump. You can just replace the sending unit by removing tank. If you want more information please get back to me.

How to replace fuel pump on 2002 impala


My 2002 Impala has the panel in the trunk. I took the panel off and the fuel pump is accessible. I will probably attempt to replace the fuel pump myself since the fuel gauge does not work anymore and the dealership indicated that the problem was the fuel level float connected to the fuel pump.

Does anyone know if there is anything special I need to do prior to replacing the fuel pump, such as draining the fuel, etc...? I was planning to at least run the car until I was near empty.

FYI, here is a link to a set of videos about replacing fuel pumps. It's a set of 13 short video clips. http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-repair-or-replace-a-fuel-pump-226058/
