Question about 2002 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

2002 camaro won't start...

No prior indications of problem of any kind... drove my car home yesterday and shortly after had to run back out. went to start the car (2002 camaro w/ 3.8L v6). radio and dashlights worked fuine, no dead battery ticking, no turnover. just nothing when i turned the key. ended up rolling downhill and dumping clutch (key was on) and it started but still wanted to cut off. i think it may be a security system problem, though pass-2 key chip is intact and clean... any ideas? Thanks!

    I have iinstaiied a new switch. The key that came with the new switch does not have the chip in it. Do I need to just get the key re-cut with tte chip in it or does the car have to be re-programmed?

    An aftermarket radio was installed in car and now security key locks car from starting for about five minutes. I believe key wire was disconnected from radio hook up but do not know if it goes to power side or ground side on 97 Camaro rs

What would cause the door ajar indicator light to remain on when car is off and doors are closed? This is also draining the battery.

Sounds like the wires to the door switch are shorted or the switch is damaged. You may have to remove a kick panel to access the wires.

I think you got hold of a batch of stale gasoline, have seen it many times. This happens this time of year because they are using up all the winter blend gas so they can switch to the summer blend..

2011 Camaro engine miss-firing

Very hard to diagnose without trouble codes, but sounds like a fuel problem - bad gas, fuel filter plugging, fuel pressure regulator acting up, etc. I would certainly check fuel pressure at the engine with key on but not started, and then while trying to start.
