My chevy 2001 impala would not start, I replaced the key

Customer Question

My chevy 2001 impala would not start, I replaced the key lock cylinder and the ignition switch and went thru the 30 min relearn process. The motor will turn over but the car will not fire or start.
JA: Does the engine turn over? How old is the battery?
Customer: battery is 1 year old, contacts clean, engine will turn over
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: As I said I replaced the ignition switch and the cylinder and went thru the 30 min relearn process
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
