I broke my key to my 95 camaro and had to get a new key made but the new key will not start the car

Key may be cut right.. but the resister pellet in key is incorrect. You have to read the resistance of the ignition and get the proper resistance pellet in key to match inorder for the car to start. It is part of the pass key security system bulit into your car.

I have a 1995 3.4L 5speed camaro. Last year i replaced the starter. Just for the past few months, when i go to start it, it clicks, but no start. Some times If i hold the key and pump the clutch, it would...

does it start fine cold and have problems starting after it's been running? gm's have the starter solenoid on the starter. if you have headers you will have problems overheating the solenoid and consequently have starting problems. as for the clutch, it has a switch on it so you can't inadvertantly start it in gear. if that switch is bad, it won't even click. you need a solenoid or starter. just cause it was new, doesn't mean it was good. see if your starter has a warranty and replace it. it should have a heat shield, see if it's there. if not, get one.

I recently put a new alternator in my 1995 camaro. Now when i turn over the key the security light comes on and stays on solid (not flashing) The car won't start. I already tried bypassing the vats with...

The problem is your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. Cheap fix: ----- ----- Bypassing the key Never worry again fix: -------- ----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites

The VATS system has 15 possible ohmic variations in the key .One might use an ohm meter and measure the resistance in your key as this is simply a resistor producing an ohmic value which must match the resistance value the VATS module wants to see. There is a 2 wire key reader in the ignition cylinder that sends this signal to the VATS module looking for a match.One may surf the web and see ways to bypass VATS but I have never tried this and its is fairly sophisticated process which requires an accurate DVOM meter that reads OHMS
