Car quit running and won't start back up. Motor won't roll over, dummy lights won't come on, but the headlights will come on when you flip the switch for them. What could it be??? Starter??? Ignition Switch??? Any suggestions???My 95 Camero did a similar thing. I was driving at about 30mph and all of a sudden the system shut down and the bell started to ring. Like I had shut down the engine and the key was still in the slot and the lights were on. When I tried to restart there were no dash lights no sound, nothing. My lights come on and radio works and inside lights come on.Acted as if the ignition had been turned off. Any suggestions.?

hot wire starter you can short out ignition switch and wiring. to jump starter ignition switch start postion.you have to run 10 gauge jumper wire from the starter solenoid positive battery terminal to starter switch or S terminal on starter solenoid this procedure take two people but better remove starter replace starter solenoid. trying jumping off starter on camaro would be dangerous you have jack up car to get to starter and wiring person laying under car hot wiring starter while other person hold ignition start position put person under car in deadly position just remove starter have auto parts check it out first replace starter or solenoid if either bad. easier hot wire starter if starter under hood like my 1977 vega monza had starter at top could take long screw driver jump starter off.on the four cylinders engines back in the 70s. camaro starter under car dangerous trying to hot wire not a good idea.
check to make sure the clutch pedal switch is functioning and that the floor mat isn't blocking the clutch pedal from hitting the switch, basically its either the clutch pedal switch or something between the ignition switch to the starter but i'd try the clutch pedal switch first, its the easiest to check
It could be anything. Any way you could give me more details. The more, the better. A couple of ideas are the ignition switch or maybe the oil sending unit. I dont know if it eventually start, engine light on while its running, started coming on before starting issue, vehicle maintenance history. Let me know.
sounds like the fusable link which feeds power to the ignition switch has gone to the happy hunting ground. this fusable link is bolted to the starter motor battery terminal along with up to four others.
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.
