2002 impala, no crank


what makes you think someone tried to steal it? the security light issue is a very common problem with GM cars equipped with the Passlock II anti-theft system. just a few days ago my 2003 impala did the same thing in front of a 7-11. took me about 10-15 minuts to get it started. i just kept turning the key on, tried to crank it, and turned the key off numerous times. i had a 1999 malibu that did the same thing and i replaced the ignition cylinder and keys. that cost me about $160 but it solved the problem. changing it out is fairly simple. if thats the route you have to/ need to go i can walk you through it. unfortunately however, GM, although this is a very common occurance, will not issue a recall to fix the problem.

My caR won't turn over but all lights and everything turn on. There is a red light that comes on when turning the key in the fuel area but I have plenty gas


That light is telling you that the fuel system has been disabled. The computer "thinks" that someone is stealing your car. This is caused either by someone trying to steal your car or more often, a malfunction in the onboard security system.


Has this been helpfull? If so, please take a moment

Ignition switch repair


whats left of the key cylinder? Is it still in place? if it is or isn't... if you can turn it with a flat head screw driver to the "start" position then your in good shape. Chances are you have a transponder chip (a theft deterrent, probably why they weren't able to steal your car) built into you key... try to crank it with the screwdriver and place (the top of) your key near the cylinder so it can pick up the signal. as for replacing the cylinder... that's a bit more tricky, i would bring it to a dealership and try to get your insurance to cover it....

Someone tried to steal my truck how do i get the ignition out and replace it


YOUR TRUCK HAS WHAT IS CALLED A VATS KEY, SO YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE THE KEY PROGRAMMED TO THE TRUCK ,EVEN AFTER YOU REPLACE THE SWITCH,YOU WILL PROBABLY NEED THE VIN # TO GET THE CORRECT SWITCH FOR YOU TRUCK ,BUT TO REPLACE THE SWITCH YOU WILL NEED SEVERAL TOOLS ,LIKE A COLUMN LOCK PLATE COMPRESSER LOCK RING PLIERS, A SET OF PICKS TO GET THE LOCK PLATE LOCK RING OFF,AND A PULLER SET TO REMOVE THE STEERING WHEEL,AFTER THE WHEEL IS OFF ,GENTLY AS YOU CAN PULL THE SRS CLOCKSPRING OUT FAR ENOUGH TO GET TO THE LOCK PLATE ,AFTER THE PLATE IS OFF,TAKE THE SCREW OUT OF THE TURN SIGNAL ARM,& POSSIBLY THE HAZZARD SWITCH KNOB THEN REMOVE THE THREE SCREWS HOLDING THE T-SIGNAL SWITCH (IF APPLIES TO THIS TRUCK) IF NOT AFTER LOCK PLATE YOU WILL SEE A TORX SCREW ON RH BOTTOM INSIDE COLUMN,REMOVE IT & THE SWITCH WILL SLIDE OUT . I WOULD RECOMMEND LETTING A PROFESSIONAL DO IT BECAUSE OF THE SECURITY SYSTEM FOR THE KEY & IGNITION.

Someone tried to steal my 1995 bruick lesabre


turn it in to your insurance, you are most likely going to need an entire new steering column to fix this.

My 95 chevy caprice won't start because of the pass key fault. how can i fix this problem?


I have a 96 Caprice and this has happened to me twice now. There are two wires that are behind the ignition (where the key goes) one or both of the wires have more thsn likely broken. I was told that the little chip in the key may have been bad so I had a new key made, didn't solve the problem!! Come to find out there was a guy in my area that rebuilds steering colums and ingnitions when there's a problem or someone tried to steal the vehicle. So I live in Dayton, Ohio hopefully your in the area probably not but try to find someone who works on cars in your area and have them take your ingnition out, and i'm about 90% sure that that is your problem. Hope it works for you. Kevin
