It is your vats system it is locking you out. It is not reading the ignition key chip. You can by-pass the system with $5:00 worth of parts from your local radio shack. You must read the resistance across your key chip first then go to radio shack and pick up the resistors needed to match your key chip(they will assist you mine read 1850 i have a 86 vette), twist/tie them together then solder & tape them up with electrical tape. Bend them into a u-shape, locate the the 2 wires that run to your vats logic module that is tied into your ecm, should be in the middle area of your dash next to your radio(yellow and brown in color. Cut those 2 wires and add your (radio shack) resistor series between them and happy motoring no more vats problems for ever. Good Luck

check that the cam shaft is turning as it may be a broken timing belt that is causing your grief. Always run fault codes before wasting money on replacing perfectly good items.

I have a 1986 Corvette that blows the 10amp fuse for the fuel pump. How can I determine the cause?


If the fuse blows after turning the ignition key to the "on" position you might try disconnecting the electrical connector to the fuel pump and turning the key to the "on" position. If the fuse still blows there is a short in the wiring to the fuel pump. If the fuse does not blow it is more than likely the fuel pump.

I smell gas after my car warms up and then it dont want to start right up like its flooding the tell pipes are turning black like there is to much gas sorry this is a 1986 corvette new engine fuel system...


you are correct it is a fuel problem/getting to much fuel,if its carborated i would try to adjust it to lean it out a bit.if its fuel injected i would try to get smaller injectors or reduce the fuel pressure.
