It is possible that the circuit breaker for the compressor unit is thrown (switched to "off"). Go outside to the compressor unit and follow the big cable up to the circuit breaker panel on the wall. If it is off, throw the switch to "on." If that is not the problem, something is probably wrong with the compressor unit. Turn off the breaker panel and call a repairman.

If a compressor for a impala goes on and off is the compressor bad?

All automotive air conditioner compressors work by going on and off. That is how they control the temperature. If they are mostly off, they make it warmer. If they are mostly on, they make it colder. The fact that it is on an Impala has nothing to do with it. The fact that it is an automobile air conditioner compressor has everything to do with it. Something would be wrong if it was not going on and off.

You need to check your fan. That is typically the usual source. If your fan isn't blowing or working, you aren't creating cold air.
