Radio Loose Connections

Hello,
you just recently answered my problem with my 2001 Chevy Impala Radio. My uncle knows about cars and he briefly checked the wiring to my radio and couldn't find a problem....I heard from someone else that since I have volume/preset controls for my radio on my steering wheel that the problem could also be in there. Is this true?

Unplug the battery. Open rear right door. Remove trim that holds carpet down and covers door pillar. Once removed take the wiring harness in hand. Remove the gray oem tape bout 2-3 inches from seat. Look for two orange wires that go into one orange wire(these are live wires hense you needing to unplug the battery). Clip the wire before and after where the tape is located. Peel back to expose bare wire. Take splice connectors. Slide the wires into the connector - 2 on one side and 1 into the other. Once you have the wires firmly in the connector crimp it with a pair of pliers. Take a lighter and melt the plastic jacket thats over the splice connector. Use black ul tape, not duct tape to put the wire bundle back the way you found them. Also note that there is a set of black wires set up the same. You may want to repeat the same process with them.

How do you set clock on 2001 chevy impala


I'm going from memory on my 2002 Impala, but I recall that the key needs to be on, radio off.
Only the clock is displayed. Push one of the small buttons to change the Hours or Minutes.
Let me know if this was correct?

First....you will have to check the code(s) stored in the computer.
The check engine light is telling you....you have a problem and fixing that problem may help with your fuel mileage.
When the check engine light is on....you loose 20% gas mileage and have 20% higher emissions.

2002 Chevy Impala Radio Doesn't Work


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.

2001 Chevy Impala Radio - No Sound


Sound like you have loose connections. Start at the rear of the radio and inspect the connections. Then move to each speaker in turn and do the same. When you find any disconnected or loose connections make them good.

Unloking radio for impala 2000


I switched my stock radio out of my 2001 Chevy Impala because it was defective and replaced it with a used radio I got from the junkyard. I called Chevy to see if I could get the code to unlock it and they told me I had to go to a Chevy dealership which I did. Cost $40.

Radio and cigarette lighter


Check behind the dash for loose wiring connections. Check for bulkhead connectors that could have possibly come partially apart. Check for any under dash grounds that are ready to break or have become frayed.
