2011 Chevy impala..battery was dead..had a jump start..but radio system want come on now..

If your radio has theft protection built in, it thinks it was stolen because its standby power was interrupted. Check the owner's manual to see if there is a special procedure for preventing this lockout when the battery is changed. Typically, it involves entering some sort of code sequence on the radio controls. If you don't know the code sequence or never set it up, you'll probably have to have a factory reset done. (Sorry, I don't know how that is done; the manufacturer keeps it secret for obvious reasons.)

2002 chevy impala won't start if I jump starter

Is the security light on or flashing ?
The yellow wire goes from the key switch to the neutral safety switch, then to the starter. So bypassing the neutral safety would make the starter crank the engine, but would have nothing to do with the rest of the engine.

You may have shorted out a wire or two during the replacement. I would check the wiring harnesses under the hood, all the fuses and for error codes (DTC's) using a code reader before doing anything else.

Hi! Not sure what you mean by "not starting", but I think you mean the battery is completely drained? Try charging the battery and unplugging the review mirrow and pull the fuse for the radio. Wait 12 hours and see if there is juice left in the battery. My 2003 had a constant drain, this fixed it temporarily.
