put key in run position, but do not start car. look at your warning lights. does your "service asr" stay on? if so, it wilkl not start.

I have a 92 vette that will not start, battery is good, when I turn the key all assy lights come on, but when I rotate it forward to start - nothing....checked battery with multi meeter and no battery holds good, no draw when key turned to the start position. I'm hearing the chip in my key may be bad??

A few things to check--- Optispark module is prone to failure (have it checked).... Resistor pellet in key is dirty(try spare key)....ASR failure will NOT stop vette from starting

I seem to have the same problem as you. Did you ever get this issue resolved?

I have a C4 Corvette. It turns over fine but only starts 1/2 the time. It cranks and runs with a touch of starter fluid although it has a miss also. Anyone out there that can help? mikeanders123@aol.com Thanks!

the 92 Corvette distributors were recalled so every so often it will fail and need to be rebuilt. I've had it done twice in a few years.There's a kit available to convert it or something which ultimately is worth it. Has anyone ever gotten smoke on their 92's between back of engine&firewall? I've seen this a couple of times wondering if it's related to other issue. Quirky little car sometimes

i have a 92 six speed,and it seems that the 92 has this problem everywhere i look. my car is doing the same as yours, and now the mechanic says that it is the CCM or sometimes refered to as the BCM (body control module) part # 16159188, 16159191, and updated # 88999216. I read alot of threads on forums that said this helped for some ,but not for others. There seems to be a problem where the ECM does'nt comunicate with the BCM resulting in a sys failure. I have'nt read anything yet where this problem has been completely solved. So i'm stuck in the mud trying to get this thing fixed. If it works for me i'll update you. http://www.digitalcorvettes.com/forums/showth...
