yes it could.... that's the whole point.... someone steels your car and unless they can shut the alarm off correctly the car won't start...

Yes . You may need to look at the ignition switch (key). There is a wire that can break (wraps around the cylinder) and in the early stages will cause the car not to start. Common with the VATS system. This wiring is close to your air bag deployment and the proper sequence for disarming it must be followed. also a steering wheel puller will be needed to remove the steering parts that will be in the way.


easy enough to check. pull a spark plug and lean it against the exhaust manifold. if there is no spark and the engine has no problem turning over, vats system would be the second thing i would check. push the stem in on your schreader valve and make sure you are getting fuel pressure.

^^^^ first thing to check is to take a dry rag or your shirt and clean the little VATS chip built into your ignition key... if its dirty or wet it wont start your car...if the chip is old and worn it wont start your car.

Can you use a front bumper and headlights off a 1998 Chevy Camaro on a 1997 Chevy Camaro?

No, the 98 Camaro is when Chevy started switching things up, they headlights aren't the in cased bulbs for headlights they are now a 9000 type bulb such as a 9005 I believe is what 98 Camaro's take for headlights. The only way I could think it was possible is if you replaced the headlights, hood, fenders, bumper, and I'm not sure then if it would still work. Those two years are the two different 4th generation Camaro's made.
