Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #4

Oct 102010


  • Automatic transmission
  • 152,000 miles


Ignition locked up and would not turn. I replaced switch and now the dash lights will not go off and it runs the battery down. There is only 3 wires to deal with changing this out so it can't be much going on or something else has happened during all of this. I have to do the work myself because I can't afford to hire someone. The car has now been out of commision since October of 2010 and my other one is not doing well. Any ideas on what I can do would be appreciated. I'm not affraid to work on it if I have a little coaching. I have been reading some of the complaints on the same model and it sounds like this is a common thing to happen with the ignition. There has to be a solution. I will never buy another Chevrolet if they can't back up there product.

Impala LX 3.2L V6

The key will not turn in my ignition (2000 Chevy Impala). What do I do? It just won't turn at all. I've tried jiggling the steering wheel but that doesn't help either.
