Question about 1990 Pontiac Firebird
I have a 1990 firebird that up till now has been running like a champ. Has never given me a problem starting but last thursday morning, I tried to start it up to go to work and nothing happened. I get power to everything but the car will not even try to turn over. I tested the battery, checked all the cables and connections, then I replaced the starter...still absolutely nothing.
I don't know if you fixed your problem yet but the fusible links will be near the altenator. They are should be black in color and an inch or so long. They will be on the positive lead(s). Have you tried starting the car by jumping solenoid on the starter to see if the starter even attempts to engage?

I can almost guarantee you that it is your ignition there are two fine wires that come out of it and they are not hard to break, your key is not the problem but since you have the V.A.T.S. system on your car you will have to take your key to a G.M. dealer there are 15 different keys and they have a machine that will them wich one you have. The price is about $115 for the cylender and 1 key.
