Starting my 84 corvette.

Asked by Apr 04, 2012 at 01:32 PM about the 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Question type: General

I appreciate the help in finding a solution to starting my 84 corvette.  Following up on some of the answer we have come to the conclusion it is the security system.  When the security light is flashing the car will start.  We are assuming the system is off.  Sometimes unlocking the car will start the light to flashing and then the car will start.  Sometimes when we unlock the car the light will not flash.  Is there a procedure for unlocking the car and getting the security light to flash?

Sounds like an aftermarket security system. That's why no one came up with the correct answer for you. We weren't made aware of that fact. Find out who made it and look online for the correct operating procedure by the manufacturer.
