2001 Chevy Impala.
My Impala wont start. When i turn the key, it starts
and dies, then wont restart.
The
security light is on also. What can i do.


Answer:
Welcome. This sounds like a very common problem
with the ignition lock cylinder. The security data is
sent from the cylinder, to the BCM (body control
module). You should have the system scanned to
be sure. Probable codes
b2958, b2960. Or p2958,
p2960
. After replacement of the ignition lock
cylinder, you will also have to re-learn the security
system. Hope this was helpful.


VISITOR:
Thanks so much for fast response. If i make
donation or tip, will you give me step-by-step
instructions on how to do this?


Answer:
That would be fine, thanks! I will e-mail those out to
you right away.
Question:
2001 Chevy Impala.
Trying to attach the ignition switch wiring to the top of the switch.
Had to pry it out but can't put it back in.
Answer:
Well, the first thing you did wrong was prying it out. That connector
is for the Passlock sensor. The only way to remove it is to remove
the ignition cylinder first, then it comes right out.

To reinstall it, you have to plug it in before you re-install the ignition
cylinder. you may have damaged it, so be sure it stays in tightly or
you will have a problem with the security system and the car will not
start. It does move around a little bit when in correctly, but not mu
ch.
