Try spraying some WD40 inside the mechanism. Drown the thing in it. It won't hurt it at all. Wipe off the excess and exercise it to free it up. Should do the trick.

Get it scanned again. If you bought cheaper ones at the parts store instead of oem ones from the dealer you are probably going to be doing them again. The upstream and down stream 02 sensors communicate with each other so it could be the upstream sensors even though it says downstream. I ran into this problem myself.

That is correct. If your coolant temp. sensor is bad or there is a bad connection. Your temp. gage will not read the proper temp. The sensor is just a thermistor, here is what it looks like. You can check the sensor with an ohm meter. 10_2_2011_9_38_00_pm.jpg

1. Jack up the car and drain the Impala's cooling system.Loosen the water pump's drain bolt and let the coolant drain into a pan. Closethe drain bolt and lower the car afterward. 2. Remove the heater outlet and inlet hose from theheater core (reposition the hose clamps to do so). Take off the right consoleextension panel, body control module and left side extension panel on the frontfloor console 3. Disconnect the leftinstrument center support bracket (pull away the carpet at its bottom to reachthe nuts). Remove the accelerator control pedal from its position in the frontof the dash. 4. Disengage the center floorducts by raising the outlet duct while pushing the ducts down. Rotate theoutlet duct forward in the car and pull down to remove it from the HVAC module. 5. Use a small chisel to removeall the heat stakes from the heater core cover. Loosen the nut behind the fuelline bracket. Remove the dash panel's stud at the heater hoses. 6.

Usually when that is case you need to look for a dimmer roller which is usually to the left of the steering wheel. If it was rolled all the way beyond the brightest setting it turns the interior lights on regardless of whether the car is on or not

if you are talking about the theft deterrent relay, It is wired between the ignition and the starter check to the right of your glove box, you will have to remove the lower dashboard and lay down so that you can see under the dashboard and you should be looking toward the rear of the car.
It will be attached to the metal part of the dashboard.

If you are looking for the actual theft deterrent module, look under the dash on the driver's side. look up and look for a black cover plate. unscrew it and the module is there.
