If the switch is in the dash generally you have to remove the knob first this is with be held on the shaft either by being forced on or a tiny set screw. you will be then be able to pull the swith downward from under neath the dash and disconnect the wires. installing is just in the reverse order. if the switch is on the rod on steering column, you will have to remove the steering column covers to remove the module it'self there will be a plug to the module and instalation is in reverse order as well. please rate this............thanks

1986 2.8 camaro starts an dies, but will run on spray. new computer, dist. injectors an pump.

Hold the ignition switch just off where the engine cranks after it starts, if it stays running you need to replace the ignition starter switch. This is the switch at the bottom of the steering column that the key cylinder operates via a rod. See photo below.

I have an 1986 camaro iroc. i have brake lights and turn signals but no tail lights or dash lights, i have power to the tail light replaced both bulbs. i cant seem to find the fuse . does anyone know where...

Bulbs work just like a fuse. When old they just short out like a weak fuse bowing out. Since the lights do not have a fuse you need to replace the headlamp switch for this switch controls the tail lamps. The directionals are controlled by the directional switch, and the brakes are controlled by a brake light switch. Those have fuses for they have switches. Headlight switches do not have a fuse

Need to replace starter on a 1986 Camaro, but cannot get the old starter past the exhaust pipe.

Removing the starter
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect all wiring from the starter solenoid. Replace each nut as the connector is removed (as thread sizes differ from connector to connector). Note or tag the wiring positions for installation.
  4. Remove the bracket from the starter and the two mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter.
  5. Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter front end first, and then remove the unit from the car.
These are the steps for removing the starter on the Camaro. Did you remove the bracket? Hope this helped and best wishes.
