Driving along and security light came on and car died. Waited some time after pulling over and car started sometimes car will not start right away because of security light this is random and very annoying as you do not know when the car is going to die. Dealer wants to replace parts that are very expensive and I did this once before (out of warranty) and can't see doing it again if this is not a fix.
Car will not start. It appears to be the passlock system. Need to wait for system to reset and it will start. This seems to be a common problem with this car and many other gm vehicles. This should be a recall.

My problem started back in November of 2006. I had to leave work to go pick up a sick child. When I got in my car it would not crank. I tried jumping it off but it still wouldn't start. I borrowed a car from a coworker and when I came back later it started without a problem. I took it to the dealership and they told me it was a fuel issue. But after reading all the complaints I realized it was indeed a passlock problem. It will happen about every 7 to 10 days, in fact today with the day. When out to my car at lunch and nothing happened. I do not want to spent $500 to get the problem fixed if it's not going to fix the problem. From everything I've read they are willing to take you money but not fix the problem.
My 2000 Impala will not start from time-to-time. I have had it in for service on numerous occasions and they cannot find the problem. There is another 2000 Impala at the service center right now with the same problem. My Impala has 75,000 miles on it. If I let it sit for about 30 minutes and try to start it again - it will then start. This has happened about 10 times in the last year.

For the last year my security light will randomly come on. Soon after. . Sometimes hours, sometimes days. . . The car will not start. I contacted my dealer and they said it is a passlock security code problem. The car thinks it is getting stolen and you have to wait 15-20 minutes and try again. The code is easy to fix but it is also $395. The only place that can fix it is the dealership. I have done some investigating and many Impalas have this problem. My dealer suggested I write a complaint because they see it a lot and hopefully a recall could occur. I don't know when it is going to happen again and being a young female it is scary when I walk out to my car late at night or alone. I have found car website forums and many have listed this same problem. I appreciate your time and hope that something can be done. This can be a safety issue for many people.
