Chevy Impala: I have a 2005 Chevy Impala with a no start issue.

Customer Question

I have a 2005 Chevy Impala with a no start issue. What i mean by no start is i put the key in the ignition and all the lights on the dash come on normal but go to try and start the car nothing. I can wait 15 to 20 minutes try again and it starts right up. I had the electrical system check and everything is fine. What could be the problem?

Hello Chris

So when you turn the key you get absolutely nothing but if you wait 15 minutes it always starts?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Not always sometimes it can take longer but on average 15 to 20 minutes
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
But yes it will start
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 7 months ago.
is this after sitting at night or even if you shut it off hot?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It really doesn't matter if it hot or cold starts
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 7 months ago.
possible causes are ignition switch, neutral safety switch, starter, battery terminals or any wires between. Now heres the catch for us to diagnose it you will have to get it to happen and then we can test the system considering you have the right tools.

I thought it might be the Body Control Module

The starter, alternator, and checked out fine
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 7 months ago.
it can be bt you must rule out the things that go bad more often. Bcm is the last check its expensive and requires programming
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
So your saying there might be a short in the electrical system
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 7 months ago.
