Can you help? Thank you, Tim

Check the connections to the battery,and remove the cables from the battery,negative first,and clean the battery terminals on the battery,and the cable ends,until shiny,then try and start the car,have the battery checked,and once the car is started have the alternator checked.

You have a bad starter cable connection. Clean your battery cables first & try to start the car. If this fails, remove the ground wire at the battery, then go underneath the car & remove the starter cable & clean the connections at the starter. Reassemble in the reverse order. The car should start. If it does not start you may have developed a "flat spot" on the starter, sometimes it takes a sharp tap with a large screwdriver to dislodge a stuck selinoid on the starter. Good luck!

What do I do when my 1996 Camaro don't start and I just put a new starter, battery, and alternator


Start by making sure that all the fuses and relays are good. If all fuses and relays are good I would check the ignition switch. Do the lights come on on the dash when the key is turned to the on position?

All wires are marked in small letters, so first make sure everything is hooked up right. Next check grounds and that correct bulbs are in taillamps. Dash lights could be bad light switch.

Im having problems with my 2001 3.8 v6 camaro. it wont start most of the time and when it does start it immediately stalls. i can hear the fuel pump turn on and the car turns over normal. any ideas on what...


Most GM vehicles from the mid 80's to around the mid 2000's have this problem. The problem is the "antitheft" systems that GM has been using. The number one symptom of this problem is seeing a light on the dash that says SECURITY. Read this link for info on these systems and some DO IT YOURSELF ways to fix it forever.

1997 Chevy Camaro V6 wont start


Hold your foot firmly on the brake and turn the key to the start position, then while holding it, slowly move the shift lever. If the car starts in any gear, adjust the neutral safety switch. Or, a bit safer, but not always as accurate, have someone stand behind the car and with the key in run position, put the car in reverse. If lights come on before or after you are in reverse, then you have same problem.
