    i've got an 01 chevy impala and ive got the same problem, my car doesn't start because the car security sets itself, ive gone through the manual plenty of times, it says it sets when a different key is being used to start the car, i use the same key everytime, the security light will flash, then stay on to where i can finally start my car, it takes anywhere from 5minutes to 20minutes, very frustrating, im late everywhere! I'm told i need a permanent bypass, it matches the resistance level in the key switch allowing the fuel rail to engage with the car key, sounds very costly, any other options, easier ways to disengage this?

    I have a Monte Carlo Z-34 and am having the same problem. I will go to start it and the security light will be on. The car will not start until that security light goes out and that can take at the very minimum 5 min to who knows how long. I have looked for answers and i just dont know what to do next.

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:)

How can i stop my security light from coming on when i start my 2004 3.4 liter chevy impala ?

Hi Glenn, did you by chance replace your PCM with a used computer? If so you will need to have it reflashed, If not sounds to me like the Passkey security needs to be relearned. Also wondering why you replaced PCM after replacing EGR valve, Please if you can give me some more info on your veh. Body control module controls security so something is not right. Please get back to me, Thanks Randy.

How do i reset the security system on my 2003 chevy impala

Are you reffering to the alarm or the pass lock system that put the theft light on.....If its the alarm the put the key in the door and unlock it. If its the pass lock system put the key in the ignition and turn it on and try to start the vehicle. After it shuts itself off leave the key on for ten min until the theft light stops flashing the turn key off and try to start it again. This may take a few times....
