1992 vette wont start for about 20 minutes

Recently when the cars sits for awhile, you go start it and nothing happens. No clicking, nothing. The lights and power seems on. After about 20 minutes it starts right up as If nothing is wrong. Could this be something with the key? The car will always start with time. Around 60,000 miles on engine.

I have seen this alot on the 90 ish vettes and it is going to be something to do with the security. When you have time I would just take it to the dealership so they can scan it and find out which part is bad and loosing memory.

What is engine code 58 for on a 1992 buick lesabre and how do I fix it

A lot of the time with the older lesabres the starter will go out and it will throw a code 58 (security fuel enable circuit). I have heard of a few other people with this exact same problem. They changed a bunch of sensors and still nothing, changed the started and the car ran fine.

Before replacing the starter tho, I would unhook the battery and let it sit for a few minutes, then rehook it. The computer for some reason may need reprogrammed. Especially if the battery has been unhooked recently.

My 1992 vette runs over 220 closer to 250-260 than the fans come on . what would slve the problem a new thermostst ?

Yes, most likely your thermostat is bad and your car is overheating. Its a simple job and even for your vette it shouldnt be more than 20 bucks for a new thermostat. Hope this helps! (rate if useful)

My 86 corvette randomly wont crank. no pattern to the problem. sometimes it will start right up for weeks and once it happens it will do this for a couple days then be fine again. just tired of getting...

What a drag is is to have your vette come home on a wrecker!

It sound to me like a bad ignition switch and or connector to the switch.

Good Luck,

Alero will crank awhile before it finally starts w/ more details

May have small fuel leak or fuel pump sending unit leak down. Or fuel pump psi low.

After 30 minutes try this turn key on. do not try to start wait 10 seconds turn key off then on again 10 seconds then try & start if it starts right away fuel system is losing PSI either back through the fuel pump or a leak in line. If you can find no leaks would suggest replace fuel pump & assembly.
Another possible but rare fuel injectors may be leaking fuel over time & dropping PSI needed for start up.

If it is like my 94 ranger it is a fuel pump sensor and ignition sensor. Just fixed mine and boy does it scoot. Mine were in a fuse box behind the battery 1in. square black pull out cubes. If you find them. ask a parts place which ones you need. Good Luck, John from Oregon
