Hey Pearl Love the picture.. Any who. I have a 2000 Chevy impala 3.8L. I insert the key and I hear a click no start up. Sometimes I have to try it several times before the car starts. Now it will not start at all. I took it to a chevy dealer he stated that there was a after market alarm installed in the car by the last owner. The alarm in preventing the car from starting. The chevy dealer repair wants $756.00 to get the car back to the original specs. I want to remove the ignition myself and possible starter. Any Ideas. to help.
