Ignition Switch grey_line.gif Inspect | Test | Replace The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.
On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

To replace the switch:

  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

SOURCE: new carburetor installed on 79 el camino

I am familiar with these, a manual choke carb works off of a bimetal coil in the manifold exhaust crossover on the passenger side of the intake, Make sure it is hooked up, then while the car is cold, on the rockchester carbs, use an 1/8 in drillbit to set choke. You have to loosen the three screws on the choke to set, when the choke flap, the very top one on the carb touches the drillbit, set it there and lock down screws, pump once or twice and it should start and idle, as the bimetal coil heats up it should open the top flap. if you try to accelerate before it is wam it will disconnect from the auto choke. I hope this helps if not please do not rate me at all, if it does help you fix your problem then please give me a fixya,

SOURCE: Cannot locate the horn relay on my 85 El Camino.

Found these documents for you.

85 ElCamino1
85 ElCamino2

In fact there IS a horn relay. I have circled the circuit you are looking for in red.
I would search under the dash on driver's side.

Find the Ignition Harness and follow the wires back to the firewall.

Please download and save these pics to your hard drive - as they are stored on my personal FTP storage, and i will remove them in 24 hours.

Are you needing advice, links, tricks, or all of the above?
If it's advice you want:
If you are not buying an after market harness and all of the oem wiring is intact replace one wire at a time from the component all the way back to the fuse box. Its tedious but, it's a sure fire way to get it right the first time.

Secondly, I'd by a haynes manual or some other wiring diagram. Study it for at least a couple weeks or until you are completely comfortable taking on the task.

Color code your wires and label both the old and new ones with paper tape and a permanent marker so that you know what each one is for.

Last but not least, make sure that the battery is disconnected... ;o)

Does my 1985 el camino have to have check engine light


In regions where smog checks are required to register your vehicle, YES. In regions where smog checks are not required, you should fix the CHECK ENGINE light anyway, as it is an important warning of engine issues.

Choke light won't go off in my 1985 El Co


What happens if you unplug the choke ? And the oil pressure switch?
On some models the oil pressure switch activates a relay for the choke heater. On other models the choke light acts as a check engine light for the very basic engine computer.

I dont think my vac.secondaries are working and i think a vac.line is hooked up wrong its a quadrajet 4bbl on a stock 305 in an 84 el camino


On the R.H side of the carb behind the automatic choke down on the rear throttle shaft there is a pin running thru the shaft with a lever that will lock it out. If the choke is not fully open or the weight behind the auto choke is not dropping the lever will not relase the secondaries to open.
