I had a similar problem with my 04 Impala. The security light when turn on and the bell would ding 5 times and the car would not start. After about 5 minutes, I could try again and sometimes it would start. The discount car parts place checked my car battery and it was fully charged at 11 VDC. (BAD) Solution was to replace the battery and I have not had the problem come back.

Sounds like an immobilizer problem, you need to get the car diagnostics done as it might not start at all one day

    If the key has a replaceable battery might be that there is a loss of connection, but still diagnostics would be the best bet

My 2004 impala dashboard lights come on while driving it doesn't cut of but after I cut the car off headlights flash an clickin noise start what wrong with my car please help Loretta


Impala's are famous for ignition issues, are the interior lights of your dash coming on when you want them, or just by themselves? The clicking after you turn off, I would check the security system, i.e., remote clickers, cars computer, key chip, ect. Sound like your alarm is attempting to engage

How can I bypass the security code


Why do think the key security is bad? If you still have a factory key, this is not the problem...if no factory key, you can take your VIN number or original key to GM dealer to get new key that they will program for you...Check for dirty battery connections:)

Security light on 2005 chevrolet impala won't crank


More then likely it's your key.
The security key setup has resisters that slowly lose the resistance required to start the car.
You can call the dealership and give them the VIN they should be able to assist you.
If not then you will have to get a new ignition

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.

2001 Chevy impala had ignition switch replaced, once i turn the key, "security" flashes on screen and car won't start. How do I fix this so that the car will start?


Turn the key to "on" and let the light flash. It should stop flashing after about ten to twenty minutes. Once the light is on steady, turn it off, then start the car. I usually put another battery on jumper cables attached to the cars battery so it does not run down and die before the system re-arms.

Sometimes car wont start


Is your security light on. If your light is on then you have a security problem that means the fuel to your engine is getting cut off. It is a security feature built for the car so no one can steal it all you have to do is tun the key to the on position and wait 10 minutes the security light will be blinking during this time when the light goes off then turn the key to the off position and then try starting the car. This has happened to me you can see it in your car manuel

2005 Chevy Impala wont start


The most common cause of this problem on the Impalas is their @$!@ security system called Passlock or Passlock II. It is very sensitive and senses an intrusion a lot of times even when there is not one. When it does it locks down the fuel injectors. You can leave the key in the ignition in the on position and wait 10 minutes for it to re-set but it tends to do this 4-5 times a month at a minimum. The way to permanently solve this is to disable this portion of the system.
You will need to take the dash off ( it is not as hard as it seems) It is held in place with a variety of bolts, screws, and clips. You can do a web search for dash removal to try and find the exact configuration. Once the dash is out under the steering column there is a metal plate. It needs to come out also (held in place by a few bolts. Once this is removed you will have clear access to the underneath part of the steering column. Coming up the steering column you will see (3) wires grouped together. (Yellow, Black, and White). They will either be tied or taped together. The only one you need to concern yourself with is the yellow one. This is the most important step. (1) Start the car! (2) While the car is started snip the yellow wire, making sure it does not contact any metal. (3) using electrical tape or something similar cap off the ends and tie it off if you wish. (4) Turn off the car, put the plate back on, the dash back together and problem solved!. The yellow or orange security light will stay permanently illuminated, but it is not a problem. I did this on my Impala which I inherited 10 months ago and have never had this problem again. You can take the bulb out of the instrument cluster to for the security light but it is a lot of trouble and not worth the effort. Hope this helps..
