    It's in park, the steering wheel actually turns both ways. Tried wiggling key while turning wheel without any luck. Rolled it forward and backward slightly while my son tried the key.

    Tried spraying WD-40 up into the cylinder and that didn't help either...

    Jammed? Is the steering wheel "binding" on it? turn the wheel while trying to turn key.

2003 chevy impala starts anti theft comes onput in gear dies wont do nothing


My impala did same thing and then would not start. I suspected anti theft problem I then had chevy dealer change ignition switch. It fixed problem second time I wasn't going to pay $ 750 for so I bought $40 dollar switch on ebay. It was an easy job following great video on you tube. When I went to start car it would not go. While doing relearn procedure (hook up battery charger before starting procedure) I got very tired of door chime so I found it was coming from left front door speaker. I removed wire to stop chime. When i went back to relearn procedure car started right up. I have a steady security light on but car has run fine for months. If you cruise and heater fan has also stopped working add wire from switched terminal on ignition switch to power feed wire on heater. It fixed both problems on mine.

I have a short in between my PCM and PCM fuse on a 2005 chevy impala; can anyone help me?


The only way forward is to disconnect battery, monitor the short with a test instrument and disconnect associated things one at a time. Also do a thorough inspection of wiring looking for possible damage to loom.

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.

2005 chevy impala rear driver power window stopped going up.stuck


If neither switch works it is a bad connection at the motor or bad ground or a bad motor. Remove the door panel unplug the motor push the switch and see if there is 12volts on the wires if there is the motor is bad There are small brushes in the motor that go bad tap on the motor while pushing the switch if it works that way replace it

How do i fix an ignition switch on a 2004 impala? it doesnt let the car start. the tow truck guy said that a lot of chevy cars do this. is it tru that i would need to get a lock smith to make new key to...


Hello, It sounds as if you are having ignition switch problems on your Impala. The tow truck driver is correct, Gm has had a problem with keys but that is because the theft deterent system is looking for a particular shaped key(original-new shaped) key and if your key is worn then you can go to the dealer with your title or bill of sale, or etc, and get new keys made. In the mean time, If it do this again turn the switch off, turn it back to start, and then leave on for ten minutes. This will relearn the key but when you get the new key you wil have to do this again with the relearn.
