    Bend over and get ready to take it. I had to pay about $600 to have it repaired, not counting $32 for towing.

If it doesnt turn you have a worn out ignition cylinder, the only fix is to replace it, Code the ignition lock cylinder, if necessary

CAUTION:Perform the body control module (BCM) theft deterrent relearn procedure whenever you replace the ignition switch lock cylinder.

Someone may have tried to steal the car and damaged the lock's internal pins. Replace the entire lock with new.

Try turning the steering wheel hard in each direction when turning the key. If there is too much pressure on the steering wheel lock the ignition will jam.

What fuse go to the theft system on a 2005 chevy


Theft light on car won't start , hook a battery charger up to your car to maintain a good charge . Then turn ignition to on position , do not crank it over leave in that position for ten minutes then turn to off and repeat this cycle two more times .
After the third time turn to off and remove key from ignition then ,
reinstall key and try to start vehicle if it works you just relearned your key to the anti theft system and you gain a free lesson !!!

Chevy impala cuts off while driving


Check for any stored engine codes, this may give you an idea of any problems that may cause your complaint. Possible crank position sensor, cam position sensor or ignition module would cause a 'die in flight' situation.

My 2005 chevy impala won't start since someone broke into my car


i would say when the person broke into your car they set off the security system which stops the car from starting, the way to reset the security is to put your key into the ignition turn the key until all the dash lights come on and let them stay on about 15 minutes after the 15 minutes have expired turn the key off and wait about 3 seconds and then your car should start. hope this helps.
