SOURCE: 2009 Impala won't start. First message

turn on your car and remove the ground cable from the battery, if the car dies it's time for a new alternator, if not take your battery in to be checked. The other message(traction control) may be just due to a faulty battery/alternator.

07 chevy uplander ran out of fuel,with 1/8 tank on way,to store now the battery save active displays when I attempt to start the van like,it set off an alarm. How can I get it running


Battery Saver Active
Refer to Charging System Description and Operation

Battery Saver Active
The BATTERY SAVER ACTIVE message will display on the driver information center (DIC) when the vehicle enters a load shed 2 event. Refer to Load Shed System Description and Operation for load shed 2 setting criteria.
Electrical Power Management
The electrical power management (EPM) is used to monitor and control the charging system and alert the driver of possible problems within the charging system. The EPM system makes the most efficient use of the generator output, improves the battery state-of-charge (SOC), extends battery life, and manages system electrical loads.
The load shed operation is a means of reducing electrical loads during a low voltage or low battery SOC condition.
The idle boost operation is a means of improving generator performance during a low voltage or low battery SOC condition.
Each EPM function, either idle boost or load shed, is discrete. No 2 functions are active at the same time. Idle boost is activated in incremental steps, idle boost 1 must be active before idle boost 2 can be active. The criteria used by the body control module (BCM) to regulate EPM are outlined below:

I dought you will be able to get it running , except by luck . The best thing you could do is have a qualified repair shop diagnose it . The first place to start would be to hook up to a factory diagnostic scan tool , Check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

2008 Impala , my "Servive battery system charging" came on, then I started to feel my steering wheel lock up.I let the car sit and I turn it back on and I cannot move my steering wheel idk what to do


if you have an electric power steering system, you may find that the battery voltage has fallen too low to make it work . this is from the message that service battery charge system has come on, indicating that the alternator is no longer charging--broken belt , failing battery , faulty alternator , faulty regulator or problem ECM where the regulator can be

I HAVE A 2008 IMPALA I JUST GOT A NEW ALT,AND BATTERY BATTERY SAVER ACTIVE COMES ON AFTER IT RUNS A FEW MIN WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE


Electric Power Management
The vehicle has Electric Power Management (EPM) that estimates the battery's temperature and state of charge. It then adjusts the voltage for best performance and extended life of the battery.
When the battery's state of charge is low, the voltage is raised slightly to quickly bring the charge back up. When the state of charge is high, the voltage is lowered slightly to prevent overcharging. If the vehicle has a voltmeter gage or a voltage display on the Driver Information Center (DIC), you may see the voltage move up or down. This is normal. If there is a problem, an alert will be displayed.
The battery can be discharged at idle if the electrical loads are very high. This is true for all vehicles. This is because the generator (alternator) may not be spinning fast enough at idle to produce all the power that is needed for very high electrical loads.
A high electrical load occurs when several of the following are on: headlamps, high beams, fog lamps, rear window defogger, climate control fan at high speed, heated seats, engine cooling fans, trailer loads, and loads plugged into accessory power outlets.
EPM works to prevent excessive discharge of the battery. It does this by balancing the generator's output and the vehicle's electrical needs. It can increase engine idle speed to generate more power, whenever needed. It can temporarily reduce the power demands of some accessories.
Normally, these actions occur in steps or levels, without being noticeable. In rare cases at the highest levels of corrective action, this action may be noticeable to the driver. If so, a Driver Information Center (DIC) message might be displayed, such as BATTERY SAVER ACTIVE, BATTERY VOLTAGE LOW, or LOW BATTERY. If this message is displayed, it is recommended that the driver reduce the electrical loads as much as possible. See DIC Warnings and Messages.

2009 Impala won't start. First message "Service Battery Charging System" Then "Battery Saver Active" Now message reads "Service Traction Control."


turn on your car and remove the ground cable from the battery, if the car dies it's time for a new alternator, if not take your battery in to be checked. The other message(traction control) may be just due to a faulty battery/alternator.
