Question about 2005 Chevrolet Corvette

1 Answer

My 2005 Vette will not start. Battery is fairly new so should not be the battery? Any ideas as I have heard the 2005 vettes are notorious for not starting?

    Does it turn with the key?

    No it is a push button. It has only sat 2 days and should start right up but only hear the clicking when the button is pushed?

James,
I feel it is the bendex at fault. Bendex is a part of the starter motor that pushes the starter pinion to mesh with the flywheel and rotate it. If it goes bad then you just hear the click sound and the engine does not turn with the starter. It can be repaired if not badly damaged or replaced if badly damaged. Your mechanic will tell you the rest. The solenoid is working giving the click sound. It could also be the battery that has run down for want of charging from the alternator. This you can check by borrowing some one else's battery for a quick startup. Or jump start the car if you have another. If the battery is down then it is the alternator.

    I'm having the same issue, except my 2005 has sat for almost 10 days in the garage. I hear the clicking (2 small) the lights pop on and the car will allow accessory mode and the radio turns on, this is obviously not the battery correct?

Having problem with my 92 vette dieing on me in


When was the last tune up? What was changed? Coils are notorious for a non running condition. Dead cell in battery or loose battery connections can make it stall. Bad alternator also. Bad fuel filter or fuel pump. Any of these are places to start checking.

My 99 vette makes a click sound when I try to start it. It wont start but the battery has a full charge. The hood light and interior lights go out when I turn the ignition key to start but they come back...


Sounds like a dead battery. However, I will tell you that these vehicles are very sensitive to voltage. Try cleaning the battery cables and tightening them properly.

94 vette won't start,bat good,have org. key,fuses ok,high beam light on lights off,lcd cluster won't light up?


Disconect the battery and ECM for FOUR DAYS then reconect the ECM and BATTERY. Let it sit for another four days without turning anything on. It should start but will run rough for about 200 miles as the ECM relearns the system. I had the same issue and that is what fixed it.
