Question about 1995 Chevrolet Camaro
My 99 Camaro is having cranking issues. It will crank when jumped from a running vehicle,but will not start from a new battery or a jump box. My battery is new and tests fine,so does the alt. Output is fine on both. I checked all connections and cables. All seems well. The (being jumped from a running vehicle) thing has me perplexed. Any ideas? THanks Jerry
When it won't turn over, does it make a clicking noise until you let go of the key? If so, you might want to have your starting solenoid checked. I've had some old junkers in my day, and what I've learned is that a weak solenoid will need much more amperage to make the solenoid work properly. Next, go to your ignition coil. You can find information on spot checking the spark on your coil online. It's pretty easy to do. Good luck.

Clean your battery terminals. When you jump start it you are connecting straight to the terminals. You are losing voltage between your battery post and the battery terminals. When you take the terminals off, you can clean everything with battery terminal cleaner. It is a spray that most all auto supply stores have. Before you put the terminals back on, put some dielectric grease on them, also available at parts stores.

A very common problem on the 99 S10 is a leaky fuel pressure regulator in the intake plenum.What happens is when the truck sits for a few hours or more the regulator leaks all of the fuel in the fuel injection system into the intake air plenum. This does 2 things, 1 it has no fuel pressure when starting and 2 it floods the air intake with raw fuel. Sometimes if you turn the key on wait 3 seconds then turn key off then turn key back on and just turn key to crank starter for a split second and wait 3 seconds.do this 3 times to repressurize fuel system then crank to start(you will hear fuel pump buzz each time you do this.also you may have leaky fuel injectors. Try to crank engine with the gas pedel to the floor. This will tell the computer to stop spraying fuel trhough the injectors and it will start. Joe ASE Master Tech

i would try checking my ground cables.try looking up the codes.this can be done for free at the local autozone or someplace like them.
i would also check the alternator/voltage regulator and there grounds.

The crank sensor is what pulses the ijectors,and makes the spark,so I would start at the crank sensor.Let me know how you come out.Check for any blown fuses also.Ecm fuse would cause this,but it may be called anything ,so check all fuses.
