Question about 1989 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

Camaro trouble I own a 1989 camaro, and recently i've been having trouble when I go to start it. I turn the key to the on position and sometimes it starts right up and sometimes theres no response from the car whatsoever. No noise no lights nothing for about 15-20 seconds and then it'll start. just now it did it again but would not start at all. Any suggestions?

Place the shifter in neutral and try to start. If the problem goes away you have a park/neutral safty switch at fault. If the problem remains, I would consider replacing the ignition switch located on the lower steering column, not the key tumbler but the ignition switch. If you have a test light and know how to use one we can go through the test procedure.
Try the shifter test first and let me know.

My 1989 BME 325i will not turn all the way through to start position

sounds as the barrel is broken or malfunctioning. you will need to remove the plastic cowling to gain full access to the ignition barrel which may give you a clearer picture of whats actually wrong. sometimes the steering lock tab gets jammed preventing full key turn

1989 Camaro RS starting problems. Will start when it wants to.Sometimes it will not do anything at all. But when it turns over, running very smooth. And then when I tunr it off,it will not start again....

if it starts when cold, but will not start hot, then it is a bad fuel injection system. if it is unpredictably intermittant, with no particular pattern, it may be corrosion on the battery cables/terminals (in need of cleaning), or your starter is beginning to fail.

1989 Camaro. Trunk latch will not catch and

Lube it up well & try a screwdriver in latch, the same way it would catch on striker on body and see if it snaps in and holds, if it doesn't, keep lubricating latch and try again until it does. Work key position in lock as well, to make sure it is actually in the latch position & not stuck in open position.When/if it does, and still won't hold closed, then you need to loosen bolts at latch and adjust a little at a time until it does.

My 89 chevy rs wont start

Try checking the trouble codes...the code system is OBD1, so you can turn the key to the on position and cross the connectors (a and b i think, might wont to double check that...) with a paper clip...the fan should turn on and the check engine light will blink the codes. Each code will be repeated 3 times before moing on to the next code, and each code is a two digit number...The first code that will blink is 12...(or BLINK...BLINK.BLINK), which just means the sistem is running properly.
Write down all codes that flash, other that 12, and look them up... I recently experienced something simmilar and pulled a code 44--low oxygen sensor signal//lean exhaust...which means eather a vacuum leak, dirty fuel filter, egr problem, or most likely a bad oxygen sensor...
The codes will ofter tell you the problem, but sometimes they are just hints of whats really going on...
