Hi all, I've just been dealing with a big move and sale of my home, over at my father in laws now. Been keeping the impala in the garage, brought it over packed full, just finished unloading and vacuuming it, want to take it to a local show tomorrow, but here's my problem. I removed the gauges and stuff to swap in LED lights, now it's all back together, and it won't start. I got a new battery as the one that came with the car was junk, the terminals were really nasty so I swapped them out too, the small wires off both terminals were also kinda nasty and they got swapped. I've got power coming in, but my relay for the starter I can hear click when I turn the key, but nothing even tries. HELP PLEASE. I want to take my impala out to show her off for the first time.

Actually the brake and oil light when I click the key back to off flicker for just a second and that corresponds with the sound I'm hearing, so any ideas?

And believe it to be the purple wire coming from the starter, I replaced the ignition switch tonight because it needed it as well, but still no nothing from the starter. I jiggled the wires and got it to start, moved it to the driveway where it began leaking oil, tranny fluid, and quite a bit of gas. Sooooo, having no freaking time or place to properly work on her, she is getting a check up tomorrow at the shop to get some things sealed up.

Youch! Too bad you got some dried up seals! Hope it don't cost too much to fix! I'd like to see some interior shots! :hope: And maybe some daytime pics as well! :hope:
