1990 Chevrolet Camaro ProblemsCar Won't Start and Security Light is On
Problems with the anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The the key and ignition lock cylinder must be replaced to correct this condition.
The windows on the 1984-2002 Chevrolet Camaro commonly lean in towards the cabin when they are rolled down, and a metal-on-glass rattle is heard with any vibration. As the problem advances, popping may be heard from the door as the window rolls up or down.
This issue is caused by failing window regulator rivets which no longer holds the window upright. This places undue strain on pads that prevent the window from contacting the metal door frame. After a short time, the pads inside the door wear out, allowing the window to rattle and become scratched in a vertical pattern.
To correct the rattling and popping noises, the window regulator rivets and pads must be replaced.
Body: A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal engine idle resulting in a stalling condition. A stalling condition may also result if an idle learn procedure is not performed if the battery goes dead or is disconnected.
