2000 Impala will not start.
Was running fine. Turned it off went into restaurant and car won't start...
Removed and cleaned battery connections, look clean.
Have lights, fan, radio...everything works.
Turn key to CRANK position, and gages all act as they normally
do...indicates the ignition switch seems OK
Removed and swapped Crank Relay with a fan relay and still no crank.
I hear no solenoid clicking when I try to start...
Placed from park to neutral and tried again...still no crank...
The car is in the parking lot of Tony Roma's at the moment waiting for me
to come back with a good idea to get her going...ANY IDEAS???
Should say, might not even be burned out but rather poorly connected.
Try removing putting back in and putting a bit of WD40 on the
terminals of them.

This vehicle, unfortuneately or not, does not have fusible links it has
master fuses under the hood in the relay panel, is the security lite on the
dash staying on, if so try another key, or do a key relearn, leave the ign
on for 15 minutes, turn it off for 10 secs and try to start.
Sgt Silicon was on the right track with the fusible link...I downloaded the
wiring diagram and the 2000 Impala does have fusible links...
Loose connections on the Aux Battery Post....fixed the problem...
Thanks from Steve...
