Customer Question
Lights dim. Check airbag...

Lights dim. Check airbag light comes on. Radio goes in and out when letting windows up and down.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is anything interfering with the seatbelt latch?

Yes.. I have to push down on the latch a little for it to stay down... seems sticky.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2007 impala

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Impala yourself? What have you tried so far?

I took itto Firestone to see what's wrong they told me they can't detect a problem. Everything under engine wise was good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When I crank it... it pause for a second with no noise that cranks..I just recently got a new ignition switch.

Hello there,

Sounds like you have a voltage drop in the either battery postive lead, or the battety ground lead, or body grounds.

A little shop might not find your issue.

A Chevy dealer tech will scan the whole car for codes.

Then do voltage checks throughout.
