Question about Chevrolet Impala
I just bought 2001 impala, the ignition was not working efficiently (had to jiggle it just right, very hard) so i replaced it with an ignition switch from a 2003 Impala. Now when I turn the key the car has power, but will not turn over. As best I can tell there is no security warning displaying in the message center, it already had other messages cycling thru it (low oil, change oil, high beam out, trunk open (when its not)) So my question is; Could the security light for some reason not be displaying, and the car definitely needs to be put thru the process of switching on for 10 mins, off, on etc. to learn the new key/ignition switch until it starts, or am I potentially looking at another problem?
Unless you used the correct coded key cylinder the engine will not start.

The traction control system uses the abs wheel sensors to detect wheel speed if the abs light is on the entire abs system will disable giving you regular braking but it will also stop feeding info to the traction control

Fold down rear seat and climb in the trunk....there is a manual release at the center of the trunk lid. (mandated by the government to kids don't get trapped in the trunk).

you have a fuse for it ,check the fuse box ,it might not say trunk on fuse panel, you might need to pull those fuses out one by one checking each one to see if blown, if the center between the two sides are broke the fuse is blown, hope this helps you, thanks robert b.

Turn the key to "on" and let the light flash. It should stop flashing after about ten to twenty minutes. Once the light is on steady, turn it off, then start the car. I usually put another battery on jumper cables attached to the cars battery so it does not run down and die before the system re-arms.
