Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

2001 lumina turns on-- but doesn't turn over

All lights come on, seems fine, but nothing happens when turning the key to crank-- waiting a minute or two, or just trying a few times and it fires right up. i have tried 2 keys, no difference. it may go a day without any problem, or may have a day when it happens several times. the security light does not flash tho one time it came on and stayed on for a minute after it started but went off. in all of this time (couple of weeks) light MAY have flashed once during all of this -- but not sure. usually-- all lights are on and everything looks just fine-- just silence-- no turning over. then-- it turns over fine.

When that happens again, try moving shifter harder into park, or in to neutral and also try stepping harder on brake pedal & see if it makes any difference.

Where is the starter relay on my 2001 chevy lumina when i turn the key nothing will happen battery is good and ive replaced the starter


There is no starter relay. But there is a part of the antitheft system that will turn off the starter. When your key is forward, do you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY? If so, this is 100% the problem. Check out this link for info and answers that can do yourself.

Oldsmoble Alero ignition security problem


It doesn't have to be the security. a dead battery won't let the car crank either. With a security problem the car will crank but not start. The security can be reset if the battery is charged and up. Turn the key on ( do'nt crank ) the security light will stay on if it needs to be reset. If it remains on leave the key on for 15 minutes around then it will go out. turn the key off and then turn it right back on, the security light will be on again. Leave the key on till the light goes out again, then turn it off then turn it back on , wait again when it goes out turnthe key off then right back on then crank the engine and it should start. With a scanner the code will be security neweds to be reset. Thia is all anyone can do to reset the security and it's what you were charged $450 for. Following directions.
