Re: 94 Camaro Frustration
Several things you can do here. The ignition cylinder and ignition switch are two different items.
The ignition cylinder is in the column and with the key socket reads the key resistance for VATS. The electrical side of the ignition switch is mounted on top of the column down by the firewall. Could be a possibility the ignition switch needs adjustment physically to match the stroke of the cylinder with the electrical function, e.g., IGN = IGN. Or the ign switch contacts could be carboned up, a high resistance built on the contacts not allowing the full current load to energize the starter relay.
You could add in a light bulb, back-up light & socket, and wire it into the circuits to test for electrical checking, e.g., solenoid, starter relay, etc. and have it come into the interior to "see" if the electrical point chosen is getting start power.
Starter relay could have the same fault, carbon build up on the contact points.
If the dealer couldn't find it, you might talk to the service manager for a rework. Most GM dealers do you guarantee their work for 1 year and you have collected more than a couple visits in 1 year. However, the fear of them finding something else wrong and replacing it and it not be the fault is a possibilty. However, the car is 12 years old. Maybe you should find an auto electric repair shop.
You could always have the shop rig up a toggle switch for the starter and wire it direct.
