You may need to occasionally access the interior of the steering column of your Chevrolet Impala to check for a disconnected wire or short in the wiring. The Impala has an easy-access cover on the bottom side of the column that's held on with a few Torx screws. You can remove the cover yourself in a few minutes' time to avoid making a trip to a mechanic.
