THERE IS A NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH ON THE SHIFT LEVER, UNDER THE PLASTIC. THE PURPLE WIRE & OR THE YELLOW WIRE SHOULD HAVE POWER WHEN YOU TUN THE KEY TO START. THERE IS A ANTI THEFT MODULE BEHIND RIGHT SIDE OF DASH THAT MAY OR NOT BE A PROBLEM. THE TROUBLE MAY BE A BLOWN FUSIBLE LINK WIRE. THERE IS AT LEAST ONE AT THE STARTER, SOME AT THE POS. BATTERY TERM. SOME AT THE JUMP START JUNCTION. THESE THINGS ARE SHORT WIRES, THAT ACT AS FUSES. THEY ARE USUALLY THICK INSULATION, SMALL WIRE INSIDE. PULL ON THEM ONE AT A TIME IF THEY STRETCH OR COME APART THERE IS THE PROBLEM. REPAIR OR REPLACE AS NEEDED. I WOULD START WITH THE FUSIBLE LINK AT THE STARTER.

1976 chevy stingray corvette, new battery it kicks in and sounds like it wants to start but it would start. Any idea why?


Mary...when you say "wants to start" I'm not sure if it turns over but won't start(sounds like lack of fuel or timing problem)or it won't turn over fast enough to start(again sounds like alternating problem and for a bit been running car off battery with no alternator till battery too low to turn engine over)...and what the heck is "starter fluid"???? No such thing.

Check the battery cables for corrosion near the battery terminal end. Sometimes it builds up under the rubber insulation. I would check the ground wire that runs from the battery to the engine block.

Have been reading the reports on the idle and starting problems on the '89 Vette, and that is the problem we are having also. We've checked the timing and vacuum leaks, etc. etc. Need to try the advice for...


I also have an 89 corvette that had the same problems.Ill tell you what fixed my problem. I also changed the fuel pressure regulator(its under the plentum in front of the distributor)This was not the problem but I replaced it anyway. The problem with the idle was my injectors.The factory multecs that are in there were original to the car and are not compatible with the blends of gasoline that are sold at most stations.Too much ethanol. I replaced mine with a set from fuel injector connection.(FIC) They are rebuilt with a three year warranty. Thats better than new ones. They are bosch 3.The car has run perfect every since.As far as the long starts it helped that too but if you do a little research on the 89 corvette youll find that GM put some crazy software in the computer that year. It requires the engine to turn over two times or about 3 seconds before the injectors fire.Thanks and good luck.don6667@hotmail.com
