In my 1985 corvette the battery is located under the hood, but you must remove the panel on the driver's side to gain access to the battery. Hope this helps

The battery is located behind the driver seat in a compartment. Remove the lid to the compartment. Disconnect the battery, remove the hold down. Remove and replace battery. Reinstall the hold down and reconnect the battery. Close lid.

SOURCE: 1985 Corvette Shuts off after heats up..

there are a few things to check, the oil pressure switch behind/next to the dist. will shut off the fuel pump if it detects no oil pressure or is loose. The module in the distributor can go bad and stop working if it overheats, use a fan to keep the dist cool and see if the car keeps running. monitor the voltages on the Mass air flow and TPS. this should get you started. Also a dirty clogged fuel filter will cause the fuel pump to overheat and shut off.

Weird instrument clusterl


The clusters in the 1985 Corvette are computer controlled, they are very prone to failure. I recommend you remove the cluster and send it in to be rebuilt. You can also get an exchange cluster for many suppliers of Corvette parts like Zips and others you can find on the internet. The cost was about $300.00 when I had mine done. Click HERE for one such repair center.

1985 Corvette. Voltmeter is reading low, 11.1. What may be causing this? Time for a new battery?


This means that your alternator is not charging anymore and likely needs to be replaced. You may want to have the battery charged then checked as well. Sometimes a failing battery can cause the alternator to fail because they require a higher charging cycle that can prematurely burn out the alternator.

How to change a starter on 1985 corvette


Not too much trouble. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove big nut from starter selonoid and remove battery cable along with any other wires on the big post. Remove the purple wire from the "s" terminal on the selonoid. Remove the 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine block, hold starter up while removing bolts. Lower starter carefully. Some starters have a bracket at the rear end of the starter , if this is one just remove the bolt holding it to the block and lower it with the starter.
