Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Chevy Impala and my ignition wouldnt turn so i took out the switch and tried to find any release pins or something to free it up. well after all night of trying to figure it out with no luck and my lady on my **** and in my ear to fix it before she needed to use it, I decided to just drill out the center of the ignition lock so i could turn it. so now it turns and everything comes on but the starter does not work from the switch, i can jump start it at the starter with a screw driver but it wont stay runnin. and yes the switch is in the "on" position. any Ideas?

Hello and welcome, inside the lock cylinder is a sensor called a pass lock sensor. this sensor is part of the theft system. when you drilled out the lock cylinder, you damaged the pass lock sensor. the only thing you can do, is replace the entire lock cylinder, and the theft system will have to be relearned

Key won't turn in ignition...should I replace the lock cylinder, or is there something else I should try...? 2005 chevy impala


Try rocking the steering wheel back and forth. Also even though the tumbler is the cause most of the time you should check the electrical part of the switch at times when it goes it won't allow the key to turn. Rocking the steering wheel is so that you can make sure that it is not turning due to the steering lock putting to much pressure on the tumbler.

Even if you bypassed the switch, your steering would remain locked. In order to determine what is wrong with it, (other than the obvious) It will need to be taken apart. You will need a manual (such as Haynes, chilton etc) in order to do this safely and correctly.

Not sure what you mean by a head unit, but best thing to do is to start taking it apart again 'till the key is again free...then look to see what was binding.

When you turn ignition on it releases a cable that is attached to the shifter also the shifter has a solenoid attached to it that is released when you step on the brake. Both times that I had the problem of button stuck and cant shift out of park the solenoid was sticking and wouldnt release .

I NEED TO RESET MY 2005 CHEVROLET IMPALA


You will have to pull the steering wheel off and then the turn signal switch, under that is a release pin to remove the lock cylinder. Since you will have to remove the airbag on the wheel obtain and follow exactly the disarming instructions for the airbag system, if it goes off because it was not disarmed then very serious injury can result.
