Impala 6-cyl

  • 120,000 miles
The turn signals and hazard lights on my 2000 Impala do not work all the time. The problem has been getting progressively worse. The turn signals may work about 40% of the time. When they do work they may just quit w/O warning. This is a serious safety concern that needs to be address. When the problem first started to occur, I could turn on the hazards and this would jump start the blinkers and they would work for a while. This no longer works, both the hazards and the turn signals are intermittent. I am not the only Impala owner to experience this problem. This appear to be a wide spread defect with the Impala. This problem is similar to the following existing vehicle recall for the 2000 Chevrolet Malibu... campaign number: 03V327000 date: 2003-Aug-28. Why was this considered a great enough safety hazard to warrant a recall on the Malibu but not on the Impala. Please investigate this is a serious hazard and needs to be recalled. Model year 2000 make: Chevy model: Impala eng: 3.4

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles
I have been experiencing frequent (every day) turn signal failures with my 2000 Impala ls. My Impala has the 3.8 liter motor and 94,000 miles. The hazard switch seems to be the reason for the failure. I have looked at several online "auto help forums" and this problem is an epidemic around the nation. GM has recalled Malibu models for the same exact problem but not Impala. The switch is a $50 part but GM wants $300-$400 to replace it. It is a safety hazard that GM is aware of. Please force their hand in this safety matter. Thank you.

  • Automatic transmission

Turn signals fail to operate when lever is moved or stop working when activated. The only way to recover from problem is to press the hazard switch. Then the signals operate correctly. Intermittent problem that occurs about once a week. Dealer said there is nothing they can do even though there is a recall for this very problem on Malibu and Pontiac cars.

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,750 miles
Turn signals only working intermittently - mechanic unable to duplicate problem on test drives. This is definitely an unsafe condition on thruway and expressway driving where lane changing and use of signals are needed to use off and on ramps. I have done enough research and seen enough reports of this same issue with both the Impala and the Malibu to be quite sure there is a defect in the manner in which this equipment was manufactured or assembled. I am requesting a recall be issued to correct what appears to be a great number of vehicles on the road with this same unsafe condition before it results in a fatality.

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The contact stated the turn signal worked intermittently. This has been occurring for approximately one year. When the turn signals were not working he could press the hazard light switch and the turn signals would activate. Nothing has been done to correct the problem. During an oil change a mechanic determined that the lower intake manifold gasket was leaking. The manufacturer was contacted and offered to pay for half of the repairs. The repairs have not been made. The replaced the hazard switch warning light. Updated 01/11/06.

Impala 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
2000 Chevrolet Impala - the turn signals and hazard lights work intermittently. The turn signals will work for a few seconds at normal speed and then they just stop working. This has been happening since purchasing the car about a year ago. Took vehicle to a mechanic and he could not find the reason why this was happening. Consumer has not contacted the dealership or manufacturer. Consumer did research and found no recall on this vehicle, but there werecomplaints about this same problem.

Experiencing problems in my 2000 Chevrolet Impala similar to the following existing vehicle recall for the 2000 Chevrolet Malibu... campaign number: 03V327000 date: 2003-Aug-28. Component: Exterior lighting: Hazard flashing warning lights: Switch defect summary: Certain passenger vehicles have hazard warning switches that may experience solder joint cracking caused by rapid temperature transitions and the soldering process. If solder joint cracking occurs and results in an open circuit, the turn signals/hazard lamps become intermittent or inoperative. Consequence summary: When the turn signals are inoperative, the driver cannot use them to signal intent to turn that could result in a crash....the result is intermittent and unpredictable loss of turn signal operation while driving. This has led to inability to signal intent of driver during a turn, lane change, etc. And could potentially result in a vehicle crash.
