Either the system has been tampered with or a glitch occured. This is not an uncommon thing to have happen and does from time to time. Unfortunately,..... this will now have to be towed to the nearest dealer to be reprogrammed and keys matched to the system. No bypassing will do any good.

Turns over but not starting is there a kill switch on 2001 impala


it could be your security system that locked itself up these cars are bad for that, the way to see is to turn the key on and see if the security light flashes on and off if so it is locked, the way to unlock it is to turn the key to the on position until all the lights come on and let it sit for 10 minutes and then turn the key off for 3 seconds and then it should start. if this doesnt help then it could be the fuel pump. hope this helps.

I have a 2001 impala , the security light flashes and vehicle will not start , is the a fuse or breaker i can buy to fix this , it seems to be getting worse


The fault is in the key tumbler. If you checked for codes the code would indicate the key was not reconized. This usually is because the tumbler is getting warn out. One day it will not start at all. Get it fixed before you end up stranded.

WHEN THE SECURITY LIGHT COMES ON ROLL ONE WINDOW DOWN LEAVE THE KEY IN THE ON POSITION AND WALK AWAY FROM THE CAR IT WILL RESET ITSELF AFTER ABOUT 15 MINUTES.

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.

2001 Impala will not start


I have the same car, I had my car fixed at the dealer. The problem is the ignition lock cylinder (where the key goes). It cost me about $340 (parts and labor). What has happened is that the cylinder is not sending the info to the starter to start the car. I guarantee you this is your problem too.
