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.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 162012

Impala 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 122,000 miles


Have a 2002 Impala 3.4L Low beam headlights suddenly quit working along with brake lights and auto door locks. Third brake light still works. And door locks work if I manually hit buttons. Installed new BCM. Didn't help. All fuses and relays ok. has new multi function switch. Anyone have any suggestions? besides using it for target practice.

problem #1

Impala LS 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,175 miles

Can you help me? I seem to have the same problem as you had. Lights flickering and a clicking noise when I press the door lock button. It is taking power from somewhere and not working at all. Replaced the BCM module hoping that would work, all dealerships in the area "never heard of the problem" and I figure it is a short in the wiring. Can you tell me where your detached wire was found as it may be a starting point for me - getting very frustrated with it as I have had other problems with the trunk lock, and a sensor for the "oxygen" with the check engine light on continuously. Giving up on Chevy's as well.
