Sounds like your wires may have got crossed and when you went to hook it back up the solonoid got shorted out... go back to square one, follow your wires and make sure positive wires stay positive and negative wires stay negative, then hook your battery up and try, if you get just a click, is it your battery? make sure it is charged, check the ground cable at the battery, the engine, the body and the starter, still nothing? have the starter tested.

SOURCE: 89 iroc camaro starter wiring connections?

I'm assuming there are 2 wires. On most starters there are 2 threaded posts. One will be chassis ground the other one will be electrically isolated on an insulated standoff, this will be the positive (usually red) wire from the starter relay which is usually somewhere close to the battery. If there is only one wire then it will be the postiive and bolting the starter in is "connecting" the ground. Make sure the mounting area is clean.

Did you replace the battery and alternator at the same time?Sometimes if you have a bad alternator and you put a new battery in,the bad alternator can completley drain your battery.

How do i take my radiator fan off of my 87 iroc-z


Replace the fan relay in the fuse box in the engine bay first. Fan motors very,very rarely go bad. Check the relay first, you may save yourself an a lot of time and money. It may also be a bad coolant temperature sensor or a bad connection and/or bad ground.

Fuel pressure? Do you hear the fuel pump running? Read the codes to see if ECM is still alive. Do you have spark at the plugs? Remember all motors need 3 things to run air, fuel, and fire at the right time.

96 z 28 wont start


The Alt is okay but the battery won't keep a charge? Replace the battery. At least take it to an auto parts store, and have them do a load test.

Your fuel pump is electric. When you turn the key on it pumps up. After it has developed the needed pressure, it no longer pumps, hence you won't hear it working anymore.

Diagnose your problem going through the various systems. Right now you have a problem with the starting system. It sounds like, from your explanation, that the battery is bad.
If your battery checks out, and then you have the alternator checked out, you have an electrical drain. This may be tough to find.

After you replace your battery, wait 10 minutes, then try to start your Camaro. If it doesn't start, (Key to the Off position), take the Positive battery cable loose. Wait 2 minutes, then reconnect it. You are resetting the computer.

Very hot alternator after just replacing and a high pitch squeel


THE ALTERNATOR CAN GO OUT DUE TO A WEAK OR BAD BATTERY CAUSING IT TO OVERCHARGE TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. IT WILL HAVE A HIGH PITCH NOISE WHILE CHARGING AT A HIGH RATE AND FINALLY IT TO WILL GO BAD.

HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED AND CHECK THE CHARGE RATE AT THE ALTERNATOR AND AT THE BATTERY.

1987 Camaro Battery Drain


Did you try checking voltage output/charging at battery, then revving engine a bit and holding it at a higher rpm than idle to see if it is charging then? Yes if you suspect a bad connection, then repair it for sure, but try this just to see. I forget what years, but at one point in time, a lot of alternators didn't charge until rpm's were increased. You checked voltage with lights, heater, etc on at idle didn't you, then with all that off, to see if alternator keeps up with accessories & drain?
