Question about 1998 Chevrolet Camaro
The other day drove to the gas station turned my car off got gas and when I tried to start my car up it wouldn't start. My radio and lights still worked but when I tried to start the car nothing would happen. No clicking sound and my dash lights wouldn't even turn on. No check engine light nothing my gages didnt even move. My alarm and remote still work. I had my windows rolled down and now my windows wont roll up. I checked my starter at Autozone and it passed. The only other thing I could think of is maybe the ignition but Im not sure.
Check battery connections and cables. Ground may be broken. Remove cables and clean battery posts then reconnect cables.
Check ignition switch, replace as needed.

First things first. Do you have a volt meter to check the battery voltage? What engine do you have?
Let me know.

I had the same issue this morning...ran yesterday just fine, but this a.m. when I went to start...nothing. No dash lights, no click, nothing except some odd ticking from the dash(?) ~ weird. Anyway, replaced the battery...starts like the champ!
Changing the battery is a bit of a challenge, but I found a GREAT step-by-step on http://www.corvettemagazine.com/2001/october/battery/bat1.asp

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

The lights and radio require about 10 amps to operate, the starter requires 200 to 400 amps. The battery could have reached the end of its life. The starter could also be at fault, sometimes the contacts are pitted and make a bad connection.
When I suspect a bad starter, I have somebody turn the key on to start the vehicle, and then I use a hammer or pipe to rap on the starter to get it to go. In the case of bad contacts, it will usually turn over after rapping on it

Testimonial: "didnt work, but it was good advice "
SOURCE: I have a 1990 chevy
my uncle had an older chevy pickup once that had a simaller problem. with his it would start and drive fine but once it was warmed up and shut off it would not start again untill it cooled down again. his problem turned out to be a loose wire on the bottom of the block that coneccted to the starter i beleive so check that before buying a new starter because from the sound of it you may have the same issue caused by the degreaser
