Question about 1992 Chevrolet Camaro
You have some wires either on wrong or touching 2 terminals at once. You should have a violet wire, that goes to the small terminal and the rest on the large terminal, (on the starter) see if one of the large wires is touching the small terminal.

The wires on the solenoid must be backwards. There is one single wire from the ignition to the solenoid, then one wire from solenoid to starter, and from starter itself to the battery cable.

If all cables and battery check out....make sure you have a good ground. If that is all good you need to check if you are getting battery voltage down to the solenoid with the key in the start position. If not most likely it's the ignition switch...if voltage is ok check connections at starter and again make sure ground is good. You should see battery voltage at the solenoid when the key is in the start position....at the battery cable and the smaller wire on the solenoid. If all checks out and still no-start...you need a starter.

Check battery condition. Sounds partly flat to me OR the earth straps that should be from starter to engine OR earth strap from body to engine is not connected properly.
Simply connect volt meter to battery earth and earth on starter and crank....if more than 0.2v then earth circuit is faulty.
Repeat as above but from +ve battery terminal to +ve on starter.....must be less than 0.2v or faulty wiring on this circuit.

I have a 1992 Camaro (V8 - Automatic) and I have a problem with it starting. I have power when I put the key in, but when I go to turn the key over, nothing happens. I know that it is not the starter, the battery or the key with the chip in it. Plug and plug wires have been replaced, fuel pump has been replaced and no problems with the battery. I have disconnected the airbag to replace it and still have the same problems. No blown fuses either. I have tried pulling out of gear and back in to make sure that it is registering that it is in park.
I asked a mechanic a few years ago if he had heard of any problems like mine. He said yes. He said there is a wire that is disconnected somehow in the column.
It happens periodically and I have to wait for it to start... sometimes for days. I have tried moving the steering and all. It will not start. No one else has ever heard of this. Have you? Can you provide another solution to this problem?
