86 WON'T START?

Asked by Feb 16, 2016 at 03:14 PM about the 1986 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 86 Corvette that will not start. It won't turn over at all, no clicking noise, not a thing. Has a brand new battery and even with a boost will not do a thing. All lights work and dash lights up but nothing else. Any ideas?
