Re: vats system on a1995 camaro
From the Owner's Manual, re-attempt to start with the same key a minimum of 3 minutes and vehicle will start.
The VATS opens the starter relay control path disabling the start function.
This symptom shows the key socket in the steering column needs replacing due to the 'leaves' in the socket are of light weight construction - they simply wear out and replacing the lock under the s/wheel fixes it.
If you do it yourself, any GM dealer you get it from, will need ownership proof and your key to match the new installation, otherwise, if the dealer/independent shop replaces it, they take care of the ownership details.
You can find the resistance of the key chip and solder in a resisotr matching the resistance, but you lose all the VATS functions.
When you pull out the combo switch handle - t/signal, wipers & washers - from its rubber grommet, pull hard but limit the stroke to one inch, otherwise you'll be buying a combo switch to replace AND notice/write down the route of the combo wires int he top of the column you don't want them to get wrapped around the column shaft and blow a fuse.............ask me how I know this.......
