What is the crank fuse for in the 1994 Chevrolet Camero Z28 and what should I check for if it blows?

There is no such thing as a crank fuse. A starting circuit consists of the battery, ignition switch, neutral safety switch or clutch switch, the solenoid and the starter.First check to see if the cable ends at the battery are clean and most of all tight. Turn the key to start while shifting from park to neutral. If it tries to turn over then the neutral safety switch is bad. If all fails then take it to a repair shop.

the neutral start switch is located on the right side of the transmission housing. It can be adjusted or if it fails continuity check must be replaced. to adjust put trans select lever in N.loosen the bolt at the top right and align the groove in the end of the control shaft with the vertical index line on the switch by pivoting the switch, then tighten the bolt. In park or neutral you should have continuity between the 2nd and 3rd terminals from the right on the bottom looking into the connector with the snap clip on top. If not you will need to replace it.

Assume you are still in the "home" category: You will not wire them in "series". "Hot" wire (typicaly black from circuit breaker in panel) to one screw on switch. Other screw on switch to all lights hot lead / screw. "Neutral" wire (typicaly white from grounded bar at panel) to all lights neutral neutral lead / screw. It's called a "parallel circuit". Remember to turn off panel when working in or near. All else fails call an electrician.
