Re: 2002 Impala Light/starting problem
I had a Dodge Caravan do this same thing to me and we finally found out that the battery was damaged. This was at a dealership I worked at so the mechanics and I tried a few things before we discovered that the problem was in the battery. We even got it started and as we drove the van the gauges were bouncing up and down erratically. Have your battery tested before you buy a new one(most parts store do this free now). A fresh undamaged battery should do the trick. Good Luck

usually if security light comes on means ur alarm system is being triggered. wrong key. or wont recognize the code from the ignition cylinder. try opening the ignition on for 10 seconds. turn it off and try crank the engine again.
this configuration of light usually depicts a door is open or ajar. this could be caused by a door switch, the hood switch, the hatch switch, even your gas cap door might cause this to come on.
i would say that a proccess of elimnation would be the best course to take. start with one door open it and push the switch by hand untill you find the switch that makes the dash light go out.
if the doors when opened turn on the interior light and turn it off when closed the switch on these doors is good. these switches are either located in the door jam by the hinges or on the very end of the dash board.
the hood switch when you open the hood should allow the light on the bottom side of the hood to come on. pushing down on the switch should turn the light off.
this procedure should help you locate the problem switch
Check the radio fuse? Box is drivers side end of dash(drivers door open)or pass side end of dash(passenger door open)
police models have a connection for the speakers (passenger floorboard under floor mat) to connect the speakers to the police radios.
If they had the speakers connected to their radios,they may have unhooked them and not connected them back to the radio.
The wires are brown,grey,blue and light blue.All into a blue connector.
My 02 did the same thing, i don't know if you tried this, but turn the interior lights on with the dimmer switch, then back off. Then lock the car with the remote and hopefully when you unlock it the lights will start coming on.
This is most likely a problem with your Passlock anti-theft system which is known issue with these cars. Passlock is a "passive" anti-theft system, which means that it will disable your ability to start the car if it thinks there is a problem. The three components that can cause this are: 1) Ignition Switch, 2) Ignition Cylinder, 3) Body Control Module (computer). The dealer is the only one who can solve this problem (unless you can bypass it, but it is not that easy). Estimated repair from most dealers is $800 and up.
