1989 Chev Camaro RS won't crank
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.
this is GM's passlock security anti theft system. Known for breaking and being a major pain to car owners. Solutions and info on this site http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
