1989 Chev Camaro RS won't crank

Asked by Apr 11, 2011 at 10:34 PM about the 1989 Chevrolet Camaro RS Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1989 Camaro won't turn over. Security light comes on/off. The car won't turn over if the security light is on or off. Attempted to start, the temperature guage goes from 0 to max.  Turn key on to accessory, then went to starter and took a screw  driver and arched across from the silonoid to the positive, the car started for one or two seconds then dies, repeatedly. Now if I crank from the starter with a screwdriver, the car cranks. I hear fuel pump running and all fuses that I have located are good.  Pink wire going to coil shows 13 volts.
