I was on my way to work and my car just shut off out of no where at a intersection, I was scared I didn't know what to do. The car behind me almost hit me because of it. I tried starting my car back up and it wouldn't roll over or make a sound and my brakes were like locked up. But all my dash lights were on and my air bag light kept blinking and my radio was working. After about 6 times trying to start my car it finally started up and the air bag light went off for like 2 minutes and came back on and my turn signal stopped working and started making a buzzing sound. Til this day if that air bag light is on my car wont start and sometimes I can put it in neutral and it will start. Every once in a while my car will accelerate on its own and when I put it in park it sounds like my car is just going to blow up because it sounds like my foot is on the gas. I took my car to advanced auto and got a free testing on it and my starter is good and so is my battery I recently got a new one. So I don't know what it could be. But I have noticed that alot of older Impala have this same problem because I have googled and searched online.

The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Impala. While driving the transmission kept slipping in and out of gear. Also the electronic stability control system caused the vehicle to drift to the right or left. Also, the lights for the instrument control panel failed. The vehicle was taken to a mechanic and the technician located several diagnostic error codes. The failure mileage was 173,009. Updated 1/5/10 the dealer replaced a sash light switch, ut that didn't resolve the problem. Updated 01/06/10.
