It should be the ignition switch, and it should be located on the steering under dash.

Why wont my 91 camaro start i drove it home one day shut it off and it hasn't started since i have changed the emc box the ignition switch the key and tumbler but it still wont start i can get it to turn...


Possible neutral safety switch failed if its an automatic, or inhibitor switch if standard trans. Does it have an alarm ? Did you get the ign switch in properly, if its the style that mounts down low on the column,loosen the screws and slide it back toward steering wheel and recheck for start

Ign. switch wont start or shut off the car


Make sure the shifter is all the way in park. If the key turns back and forth like it should or don't move at all, the electrical part of the ignition needs to be checked first. It is located under the dash on the steering column.
