2016 impala 2.5 ecotec

Asked by HectornMelissa Jan 05, 2020 at 07:42 PM about the 2016 Chevrolet Impala

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a new battery, installed it and put
the cables backwards. Now it won't start.
Permanent code p1682.....what do I do?

1 Answer


That code pertains to the ignition circuit and/or the engine computer, which would imply you blew a circuit to the ECM or ignition module. Check all your fuses are intact and then check the fusible links are still good. (Google what and where your fusible links are.)
