You might try tapping around the soleniod with a small hammer as someone attempts to start it. The security light will normally do that.

I have a 2001 Chevy Impala LS that won't crank,


I doubt it has anything to do with the key switch.
If the security system is the cause, the security warning light should be on.
Someone would need to check the circuit between the key switch and the starter when it fails to crank to find the problem.

How to replace gmc1990 pickup coil


I assume this is the HEI coil. If not let me know and I can help further.
Instructions
    • 1 Put your safety first. Engage your emergency or parking brake. Also, disconnect the negative battery cable from the Chevy Corvette's battery.
    • 2 Make the ignition system visible. On older models, you may need to remove the plenum extension for the intake manifold using a screwdriver or wrench. For newer models, remove the cover for the fuel rail.
    • 3 Look for additional parts that you need to remove. For HEI systems, you need to access the distributor through the cap. Other systems use an ignition coil harness connector.
    • 4 Disconnect the secondary wires, or spark plug wires, from the ignition coil. Tag each wire with masking tape, so you know which terminal to reconnect the wire to. If you connect the wrong wires to the terminals, your Chevy Corvette won't start.
    • 5 Detach the ignition coil mounting bolts and remove the ignition coil. The amount and type of bolts vary depending on the part number for the Corvette ignition coil. You may also need to remove the ignition coil arc seal.
    • 6 Clean the distributor cap with a soft cloth. Now is a good time to replace the seal, if needed. Insert your new ignition coil and secure it in place. As you reassemble, use a Torque wrench to tighten the mounting bolts or screws to 13 inch pounds (1.5 Nm) of torque.
    • 7 Reassemble the rest of the parts and reconnect your battery. Start the Chevy Corvette to ensure the repair worked.

2009 impala driver side power seat won't move up/down, makes whirring sound when attempted. Moves forward backward. Passenger seat works properly.


Before you do any of the expensive things disconnect and reconnect the wiring to the seat I had the same exact problem with my 2009 Chevy Impala and was ready to take it to the dealer when I disconnected the power cables to it and reconnected them I found that one of the Harnesses was loose and the problem was solved

The security light is on in my 2001 chevy venture message center


Hi there,
Most commonly with these cars the security system will do this if the battery is "drained" while trying to start the car. ie: a low battery that is too weak to turn the engine over. Usualy the power options & accesories will not work if this is happening.
To fix it you will need to ensure the battery is charged, you then disconnect the battery negative cable for about 1 minute with the key out of the ignition. reconnect the battery cable & start the car normally. Everything should be back to normal.
Let me know if there is anything more you need for this concern.
Farrout!
