problem #1

Jun 142007

Impala 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles
Security issue when trying to start the engine. Security error will flash when attempting to start up the engine which resulted in loss of power to all systems. The only fix appeared to be to wait 20-30 minutes and then try to start the engine again. Area shops admit knowledge of defect, . some blame the ignition switch, which has been replaced at personal cost and the problem remained. Some technicians claimed that GM has not yet figured out what the problem was. Am wa S aware of the same problem with Silverado trucks as well. Am a lifetime owner of GM vehicles, but this will probably be my last unless an acceptable solution was found. Found.
