1994 corvette wont start

Drove fine , turned it off at the gas station and wouldn't start back up. no cranking over, absolutely nothing when you turn the key, not even a click, checked the battery, checked the small fuse boxes by the battery (2) of them were for the ignition, but nothing else for the starter......any ideas?

I had the same issue this morning...ran yesterday just fine, but this a.m. when I went to start...nothing. No dash lights, no click, nothing except some odd ticking from the dash(?) ~ weird. Anyway, replaced the battery...starts like the champ!
Changing the battery is a bit of a challenge, but I found a GREAT step-by-step on http://www.corvettemagazine.com/2001/october/battery/bat1.asp

Had a similar problem with my 1991 vette. It turned out to be a dead spot in the starter. Had the starter replaced and never had the problem again.

When tried to start my 94 corvette in driveway would not make
a sound. Turned out to be ignition switch (down in the
steering column). Had to have it replaced.

Dunno if it is your problem but have had this same 'died without warning' effect from nothing more than a corroded battery clamp or terminal at the starter with the same problem.

A cheap multimeter will tell you if there is any life at all and by measuring at the terminals when having someone turn the key, then doing the same at the clamps themselves will tell you quickly if it is simply failed contact at the battery.
If the battery measures ~ 12.6 volts with no load (nothing turned on) and still the same with the key turned to start, then the terminals are at fault.

Something I have never seen before happened to one of our sons just yesterday; his Optima (costly) battery lost contact INSIDE of the battery!
It measured zilch until we dropped it on the ground (on purpose) then it measured normally 12.6 VDC.
We reinstalled it and again, as soon as he attempted to start the Jeep, even the underhood light went out and didn't come back on and the battery again measured 0 volts.

I washed the engine on my 1994 Corvette and now it won't start


I'm assuming that since you drove it home that the engine still cranks over and that it is not a battery issue like one of the other answers. If it does, but still doesn't start or tries but doesn't run smooth, that you may have gotten moisture under the distributor cap. That wouldn't show just by looking at the engine bay. You would have to look under the cap to be sure.

Your engine may look nice but the electronics on it absolutely don't like water. Unplug every connector and dry them out, one at a time and hope for the best. The entire system reads subtle changes in current...water will change those readings enough for the computer to get totally confused. Also, check inside the distributor cap...often water will steam off the engine and condense inside cap causing ignition system to cross-fire.
