Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala
Is it true that replacing factory radio with aftermarket radio will cause car not to start sometimes because factory radio's wiring sends signal to ignition system. sometimes it will not start and i will have to wait until i get lucky and then it starts. ive been stranded at work or late night if out somewhere ive been told that factory radio has to be place in the trunk with its harness to prevent electrical problem
The factory radio has nothing to do with a car starting or not starting. You can install any radio that you like in your car as long as it was installed properly there will be no problem. The no start needs to be looked at but don't look at radio for cause. Would need more info on the no start to help there. You should take notes as to conditions when car won't start.

You are going to have to purchase a special wiring harness to install an after market deck in this vehicle and depending if you have onstar or not they range from $130.00 to $180.00 if you dont get one of these wiring harnesses and install an after market deck you will have system failures. It could keep car from starting also, cause lights to flash on and offand slowly work through your cars computer system messing everything up.My advice would be to have it done by a professional.
