I just love Camaro's and finally after 23 years bought one for myself I just hope I didnt buy one that is going to crap out on me in a month or two.
Now I gotta save up for the 1969 Camaro I have always wanted.
Again thanks guys
well, you're not really going to find anything under the car. im not really sure where the wheel speed sensors are located at.. but im guessing that is your problem
where did you get the car scanned at? the car should save the SES light in the computer so if you get a code and it goes away it should be stored in there
i wouldnt worry about the car crapping out.. you havent described any horrible problems with it.. just some small quirks that shouldnt be too expensive to fix.
but for now, try and get some rubbing alcohol and clean the little ship on your key really good, and see if the security light turns off
if it doesnt, you can try the VATS bypass, which basically consists of using a voltmeter to check the ohms of the resistor on your key, and going to radio shack to buy a resistor of the same ohm rating, and sticking it in the wires under your dash that control the VATS.. it is a VERY common problem, and im sure almost everyone who has owned a 4th gen fbody has had their security light come on at one point or another
you just have to be careful, because if the problem gets any worse, your car will not start, and you will be stranded (although most of the time if you take the key out, wait 5min, and try it again it will start)
speaking of the ses light again, is this an auto or manual?
do you happen to notice if the light comes on if you are engine braking? im pretty sure the 3.4l engines have a vacuum operated egr, and when you engine brake, it opens the egr to burn some of your exhaust again, its common for them to get clogged with carbon your car will get a bad reading which throws a CEL
