in my 95 z28 there was a short in the power drivers seat. so if you have a power seat unplug that. it was a problem in the 93 to 95.
i got a 94 too. the clock and radio run after you take the key out until you open the door. Even if the clock stays on the whole time, it probably isn't enough to drain your battery. have somebody with a wand check it for shorts, you might also just need a new battery.
Headlights run off the battery not the ignition...
The voltage reg is sticking and will run down the battery.
The radio time would stay on if you had the keys in the ignition but the ignition was only turned halfway.
If the ignition switch is faulty it could leave an electrical component turned on and that could potentially cause a dead battery. That would not necessarily be the case and you might notice if the switch is supposed to be off but something still runs.
either a dead starter or a bad ignition coil would be my guess
It could be a bad battery.
It sounds like your ignition timing timing is too far advanced. It will need resetting.
Could be your battery, starter, ignition, check them... would start with the battery !
Answer: Most likely battery (you probably surmised this already), however, it could also be a faulty ignition switch or poor connection at the starter or starter module/relay. When the key is turned, do the instrument cluster warning lights come on (& dim slightly)? If so, its not the battery.
I had a 96 Stratus that would do that, and it turned out to be that the starter was bad.
If the cigarette lighter would normally work without turning on the ignition, yes.
If it is a stock original engine and ignition system the gap would be .035".
