My 95 chevy camaro starting issue

My camaro will run only if i hold the key in the run position! Can someone help me please? I think i have narrowed it down to the Ignition Cylinder. But not sure if it's the Ignition Switch. It started out running fine then went to trouble starting. Then the other day I was driving and my car completely cut off while riding down the road. After atrying to get it to start back after about 5 min it started and ran fine for about 3min. Then it died again. So i tried again and it wouldnt turn ova but i could hear it grinding like it wants to start. After playing with it I figured out it would run if i continue to hold the key in the on postion. Any help would be most appreciated.

    So when you say the switch do you mean the acutal key cylinder or the switch in the neck of the wheel?

The place were the key goes is called the ignition cylinder. the ignition switch is located in the steering column.

    the whole ignition switch the one where you put the key in there should be only 1 ignition switch.(where the key goes).i dont see how you could be confused and give such a low rating. i honestly thought i made myself clear when i said ignition switch .i could understand if i had given some off the wall answer (like it could be out of gas flat tire e.t.c)but this was a ligit answer your car should have only i place to put a key in it to start it(this is called the ignition switch)all cars do.unless someone has cobbled up something else on your car to get it to start other than the key.but thanks anyway jeff

95 CAMARO V6 TURNS OVER WON'T START SOMETIMES?


Could be a number of things--Suggest you find someone with a scanner that is capable of reading GM specific failure records. That will more than likely give you a place to start.

1987 2.8 Camaro cut off and now won't start. Shop says it won't communicate with scanner and think computer issue. Thoughts?


There is a fuse that gives power to your obd11 hookup and if it's burned out you will not be able to link up to the computer. That was the case with my 1999 Chevy blazer any way. This fuse was located in the fuse panel inside the rig, also if someone has updated the computer for performance only a dealership can get around this. Hope that helps. Jeff Horton

95 camaro 3.8 v6 . was driving and car suddenly died .charged battery over night. had it tested, was good. removed starter, it too tested fine. All I get when i try to start is a click. cleaned connections...


The starter is not the issue as you say the car suddenly died. That would not be caused by a bad starter or solenoid.

You car needs the battery to be charged to continue to run. While normally the alternator or charging light would usually come on, I think it has something to do with your alternaor not keeping the charge up on the battery. Without a strong charge, there would not be enough power to turn the engine over, which would explain the starter issue.

The fact that you said the battery had been charged overnight and there wasn't enough power to turn the starter over bothers me. While someone has told you the battery is good, I would take it somewhere else for a 2nd opinion. I have a feeling that the battery is at the root of the problem.

95 chevy camaro with pass key will not start. Replaced key and it started. Later it did not start. What's going on? What are some things to try?


If it's the same as the VATS system in my 86 Corvette (resistor pellet in key) the ignition switch might need to be replaced. The contacts on the key wore low, replacing the key helped for a short time but the new contacts wore the switch down faster then it too needed to be replaced. $200!

1997 Chevy Camaro V6 wont start


Hold your foot firmly on the brake and turn the key to the start position, then while holding it, slowly move the shift lever. If the car starts in any gear, adjust the neutral safety switch. Or, a bit safer, but not always as accurate, have someone stand behind the car and with the key in run position, put the car in reverse. If lights come on before or after you are in reverse, then you have same problem.

There is a computer chip on your ignition key that reads as you start it. Push the button on your ignition switch and it will come apart and you will find two little wires with a conector without them conected your secerity light will flash and will not start I lost my chip and hope someone can tell me how I can bypass it.
