Re: LT-1 troubles
auxillary power cable that goes to the fuse box in the engine compartment. The post the extra positive runs to . . .
The bolt gets corroded ( replacement bolt is brass instead of steel).
replace the bolt. No more problem. Check it out. You most likely have an intermittent loss of power to that box.
That is what happened on my LT-1 caprice. My uncle could never figure it out. I bought the car from him . . . I fixed the problem . . . no problem for 5 years.
