2004 Chevrolet Impala Owner Comments

problem #4

Impala 6-cyl

  • 121,000 miles


Traction control system activates when it should not. Brake pedal has buzzing noise and pressure while braking from around 35 mph. Causes the vehicle to jerk to the right. Also, when the tcs activates when it should not, it does not allow for acceleration and has left me pulling out of a side street to almost getting struck by cross traffic. Both are very dangerous situations!

Originally radio failed to work. Went to the dealer and was told that I would need to replace the radio. After further investigation, found out that there is a wiring harness that was corroded in the passenger rear seating area. This harness also controls the warning bells for the entire car. There is definitely a water entry issue with this model. Now the air bag light is coming on and you can hear water 'sloshing" around in the dashboard area. Water is coming in to the passenger floor area.
