Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

2001 chevy impala won't start. battery is showing 12 volts. turn key 'on' and nothing happens, no dash lights, no clicking, nothing. turn key 'off' and a rapid clicking sound starts (similar to turn signal) this may continue for 3-4 minutes, even if key is removed. when it stops, the door chime will sound until you insert key and turn 'on'. the only thing on dash that displays is the clock, but it keeps resetting itself to 12:00. What's up????

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: replaced battery in remote even though old battery

• Resynchronization may be necessary due to the security method used by the remote keyless entry system. Resynchronization may be necessary due to the security method used by the remote keyless entry system.
The transmitter does not send the same signal twice to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). • The RCDLR will not respond to a signal that has been sent previously. This prevents anyone from recording and playing back the signal from the transmitter. • Resynchronization may be necessary under the following conditions: - The battery in the transmitter is very weak. - The battery in the transmitter was replaced. - The battery in the vehicle has been in a low or no charge condition for an extended period of time. • In order to resynchronize the transmitter with the RCDLR, perform the following steps: 1. Stand within 1.5 m (5 ft) from the vehicle. 2. Simultaneously press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter for 7 seconds

SOURCE: 02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key

your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

My 2001 Chevy Impala won't start. When I turn the key all ouside and inside lights comes on but that's it. No nothing else.


simple stuff 1st

  1. Check the battery for volts. You can have your lights but not enough to start. should read 12 or more volts. if not remove battery cables from posts clean posts back to silver color all the way around and charge.
  2. Clean the cables where they connect to posts till silver. Wire brush or file it
  3. reconnect and make sure there tight and try start
  4. if no start follow the battery cables and clean and tighten at starter and ground to frame.
  5. Try start
  6. no start then test solenoid and bench test starter.
Hope this helps Mike

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

My 2001 Impala wont start, battery reads good on an amp meter as well as the alternatior, when key is placed in the ignition all bells and whistles blow but car wont start.


What are you using to "read" the battery? A multi-meter, perhaps? A battery can show 12 volts on a multi-meter and still not have enough voltage to start a car. The voltage will be adequate to operate most electrical functions but inadequate to crank the car. If you hear a clicking sound when you turn the key, the starter is not getting enough voltage.
You should have the battery "load tested." Most auto parts places do this at no charge.
