Radios in the 2004 Impalas are tied to the vehicle's VIN through the computer, so it may be somewhat difficult to get the code. However, the following steps should work:
1. Press and hold the buttons for presets 1 & 4 (may be 2 & 3). The word "SEC" should show.
2. Press the "MIN" button. "000" should be displayed.
3. Press the "MIN" button again to have the second two numbers appear. Record these numbers.
4. Press the "HR" button for the first two numbers to appear. Record these numbers. -- Note: Your number sequence should be the numbers from the "HR" button followed by the numbers from the "MIN" button.
5. Call 1-800-537-5140. This will get you to the GM unlock code automated line. Ignore the prompt and enter "202108#". Next enter your code (remember, HR then MIN) followed by the * key. For example, 1234*. A 3 or 4 digit code will be given to you. If you get a code such as 0532, drop the zero when entering it into your radio.
6. Enter the code into the radio IAW the applicable manual.

The ignition cylinder will have to be removed and taken in to the dealership where they can recode it for you.If it is in the column the steering wheel has to be removed.If it is in the dash which I think yours is then the instrument panel has to be removed to remove the ignition cylinder.If you are not mechanically inclined then don`t attempt to repair this yourself.The other thing is that the theft deterrent system will have to be relearned or the vehicle will not start.The estimate I get is about 200 bucks.But it depends on the labor rate at the shop you go to.You should go to a dealership because they have the tools to repair the cylinder and I don`t know if an independent shop does or not.What you could do is call around and find out before you go.Hope this helps.Good luck.
