88 camaro 305 A/T Has the Anti-Theft.
I was siting at a drive through and it just dyed and would not start. Starter does not turn. Guages all work fuel pump comes on when I turn to start. Headlights stay bright.
Tryed jump starting starter still does not turn. Replaced starter,Ignition switch, Netural safty/ B/U Light switch, still goes the same thing. Checked power to starter OK & S side of starter no power when in start pos. Put 12v to the Purple wire on B/U light switch harness and starter turns over. I am running out of things to check.

greetings kb9vzl, when your car died, did the check engine light come on? when you try to start it, does your security light on the dash stay on or go out after a few seconds. when you say you changed the ignition switch, was it the one under the dash mounted on the steering column or the ignition lock in the column? if the check engine light comes on is there a code stored in the memory? if the security light comes on and stays on, you definitely have a problem in the vehicle anti-theft system.

Don't Rember. Been working on it for over a month. The Security light does not come on at all. I am going to check the bulb. I replaced the one on the stering column. Checked codes their is none.

Thanks for your help. I will be in touch.
