Re: help with 97 comaro please!!1
You should try to start the car a second time min three minutes after the first attempt to start.
If it starts, then you might need a new key lock/tumbler in the column as the socket reading the key chip is worn out.
Any GM dealer can sell you a new tumbler with owner verification/registration but the steering wheel has to come off, turn signal/combo lever has to come out, then a torx bit to unlock the tumbler and replace. Air bag comes off also, disconnect the battery and remember/write down the radio security code.
At the bottom of the column are two thin white wires in the connector from the socket.
Read the ohms value from the key chip itself, then insert the key into the tumbler and read ohmic value on the white wires - no ohms, no VATS permission to start.
But a second start attempt after three minutes from the initial attempt should allow the engine to start.
