Not true, there is an Anti-theft relay, it is a 2001 Impala 3.4, should have included that, I purchased the relay, it is different and comes with housing over the relay, so it is not in the normal places for relays, it is not in the fuse panel on the driver side, nor in the fuse panel on the passenger side, nor is it in the under the hood fuse / relay compartments, which makes sense because it is a theft deterrent device and should be difficult to access anyway,
but there is definitely an an anti-theft relay, called some chevy dealers around here, central MA and they are not helpful, called chevy / GM direct, the lady I talked to there was helpful and is going to have a District Manager talk to me, she sounded pretty concerned that the chevy dealers wouldn't help me out, so maybe she will reprimand them or the district manager will reprimand them, maybe the dealers concerns are safety related tho
outside of the airbag there is not a real safety issue, I have the battery terminal disconnected and took out the maxi fuse for the air pump, stopped a little while ago, didn't want the air bag going off while I worked on the dash/instrument console, is there anything else that should be done to prevent the air bags from going off accidentally?
I have all the instrument panels out, ie everything is out, just left with the big black plastic molding things that stretches across the dash and so I am going to take that out, right now I cant figure out how to get the top dash cover off, I took out the screws that hold that dash cover down in the front but something is holding it on in the back on both the left side and the right side too, , ie in the back near the windshield, any clues u can give me on that would be appreciated too, the black molding thing has bolts maybe about 6-8 of them and it is loose on the bottom, ie not attached at the bottom of the molding,
thanks for the relearn procedure, the procedure u gave me is for a Pontiac Sunfire 2001, will that work on my 2001 Impala too?
Thx Dude for ur help.
