2000 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120k miles
Hi and thanks for taking time to read this. Now, down to business.
My father in law has a 2000 Impala (former police car) that has a few issues. First things first, the cruise control does not work at all. I have checked the fuses and all fit tight and are in good working order. Everything under the hood related to the Cruise Control are all plugged in and intact and appear to visually be ok. Secondly, the headlights stay on at all times. The only way to turn them off is to take out the fuse. They will not turn off with the switch itself. So I believe the fuses for them are out, due to I don't see him driving at night and headlights are off. Thirdly, the car some times shuts off while driving, even under an acceleration load. It doesn't seem to have any sort of pattern of when it does it.
I feel all these problems are electrical, due to this being some sort of law enforcement car with wiring and all. It has two big spotlights on it, neither of which are actively connected. I have read several forums and can't quite nail down the answer. I believe the problem is either a bad ground or some sort of issue with the ignition switch. Any help on getting me in the right direction is appreciated. Thanks
have the same problem?
