SOURCE: chevy steering wheel controls

You first have to disarm and remove the air bag (unscrews with bolts from behind the steering wheel) and then you will see the screws for the switches. Only the silverado awitches will work.

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Impala Traction control /ABS problem

i have a 2002 chevrolet impala and the same thing happened to me. abs light came on as well as my traction controll light. when i would step on the gas or brakes my car sounded like the brake pads were skiping against my rotors. i had my hub sensor replaced 5 times. the machanic kept telling me it was the part that need to be replaced.they hooked it up to have a dianostic done and the computer keep telling them to replace the hub sensor. so finally we brought my car to an electric auto shop. they found it was a loose wire that was turning my brakes on and off.(haywire)they fix my car in 30mins.

SOURCE: 2006 chevy impala won't shift out of park, and

check for broken wires under the floor shifter at the BTSI connector..the 06 impala had shift solenoid problems often. If thats ok then...remove the negative battery cable and turn key to the on position...try to shift in to Neutral...if your are able to shift, the brake switch is faulty.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

SOURCE: what would cause traction active light come on

i have had this problem since about 6 months after i bought my 2001 impala. the problem is in the hubs. the wireing that runs throw them rubs together and eventually shorts the traction and abs. easy solution to fix it though. get into the hubs and wrap the wires. otherwise take the car in and explain the problem to them and exactly what you need done. 9-10 times they won't fix the problem unless you tell them what you want done. it is really simple and going to the dealer should only cost you about 100 to fix.

04 chevy impala trac cantrol active while starting of with wheels cut sharp to the left


Cou;d be a speed sensor/ABS. Cutting hard left or right is causing one wheel to move faster than the other. Slight variations will cause a traction light. Over time this will cause the ABS light to come on. I wouldn't worry about it right now. It would be hard to pinpoint the sensor that is going out. Just a note. When the ABS and Traction lights are on. All it does is revert your car back to the old system. Meaning that, your tires will lock up if you hit the brakes hard...

Traction active light comes on dash when sharp turning


Hello, this is normally caused by a wheel speed harness going to one of the front wheel speed sensors. this requires a high end scan tool that reads real time data to isolate which harness is at fault. or you could just replace both front harnes. cost is about 75.00 a harnesss. takes about 1 hour per side to replace

The key wont turn on a 2005 chevy impala


Sometimes the simplest solution here is the steering wheel being locked to one side.. Try moving the wheel back and forth (it should only move about 1cm) and try turning the key simultaneously.

My 2005 Chevy Impala's power stearing problem?


From the sounds of it, that pothole messed up your steering. Something is binding in the steering train, could be a damaged tie rod end, one of the other steering joints, or even the rack and pinion steering itsself. When it's binding, the power steering pump has to work too hard, slowing the engine down, making your lights dim because it's also slowing the alternator(on the same belt drive) and furthering your steering problem. You need to get it checked out immediately before something breaks and gets you into an accident. Remember, if steering linkage breaks, you have NO control of your vehicle, and it doesn't care if you're driving 70 mph on the highway.

2005 Chevy Impala key seats in ignition but will not turn


With the key in the ignition try turning the steering wheel side to side, it may require a bit of force in either direction to get the wheel freed up and allow the key to turn. This happens when you don't allow the steering wheel to come to a resting spot before removing the key from the ignition.

2003 Chevy Impala Service Traction Sytem show on Dash


I can't answer the question about the gas fumes, but I had the same problem last year with the "Service Traction Sysytem" message and the Trac and ABS lights coming on in my Impala. Mine turned out to be because of a bad wheel bearing, that was causing the ABS and traction system not to work. I'm not sure if you've experienced this, but another thing that would happen with mine was that I would go to brake and have a hard time depressing the brake pedal, almost like it was pushing back. That is the point when the Trac and ABS lights came on.
