Thanks for contacting

Open both front doors, remove the fuse panel/relay cover panel at top by pulling straight off. There is a screw at the top which holds part of the dash panel, remove screw, do the same on the other side. Remove two screws at the center of drivers side of dash at top which screws in to the top of the dashboard. Remove small lower dash panel around steering column, it has two screws.You will have to unplug four electrical connectors, Two are on lower panel for floor light and trunk release. Two are on main dash panel, one for Traction control and one for hazard light. Start to pry from drivers side, the dash panel, it has snap clips and work across to pass. side. sash panel will lift off. This will leave acsess to radio.

Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You.

My dash radio and power window and door lock lights go off when daytime running lights switch to night lights

This seems to be a common problem with the Impalas. Most find that replacing the headlamp switch fixes the problem. It seems the dimmer inside the switch tends to fail causing the dropout when in night lights mode.

When i turn my rear defroster on in my 2002 impala my radio just cuts out and gets nothin but static. ive tried adjusting the antenna which way it faces and everytrhing but it continues to not work. any...

I believe there is an antenna coil located behind one of the 1/4 sail trim panels. I ran across this when I had to put a strut in my 1999 LeSabre. Back seat, sail trim and package shelf had to be removed to access upper strut mount. Mine was behind the left sail trim. Removing the sail trim I knocked the cover off so I asked my GM parts guy what it was. It was radio related. I believe the back defogger grid is the radio antenna. It was around $18.00. I would check that as my son's 2002 Impala rear defog is inop and that's one of the things I will be checking. Good luck.

How to replace hazard switch on 2002 impala ? dont know how to remove dash panel, need someone to let me know !

I recently replaced the unit on my 2002 Impala thanks to a fix suggested by another reader on this forum. Despite the dealer stating that the dash must be removed and the switch released from the back, a simple, fast solution is as follows.
Take a small, thin screwdriver and pull the triangular hazard knob off the unit from the front. Now take and slide a narrow, flat screwdriver along each side of the switch. This will release the tabs holding the unit and the unit will slide out. There is at least eight inches of cable that comes out so there is no danger of losing the harness behind the dash. Disconnect the harness, install the new harness and slide the unit back into the opening. The procedure took all of five minutes. Good Luck.

I have a 2002 Impala and the signal flasher quits quite often.... How is this repaired???

Your turn signal and hazard flasher assembly is one unit,it is part of your Big hazard button,this was a very common problem with GM they used this same thing in alot of there models with a high failure rate,You have to gain access to the back inside the dash and depress a plastic tab and the assembly pushes out towards you I usually remove dash face and then pull the radio out a little to gain access,the dash face is in with push retainers pull off very carefully,then remove radio but don't disconnect wires just pull out enough to gain access.

2002 Chevy Impala Radio Doesn't Work

Check the radio fuse? Box is drivers side end of dash(drivers door open)or pass side end of dash(passenger door open)
police models have a connection for the speakers (passenger floorboard under floor mat) to connect the speakers to the police radios.
If they had the speakers connected to their radios,they may have unhooked them and not connected them back to the radio.
The wires are brown,grey,blue and light blue.All into a blue connector.

Radio Unlock code

The only place to get the code is from the dealer. You can save some money by removing the radio your self and writing down the sieral number. Write down all the numbers to be safe. Try calling the dealership first, they are not supose to give the codes out over the phone but some times they will.
