Hmmmm, don't know about this one, that would be in big letters in the manual I would think.

How could I find my starter cable if this happened to me? Sorry to be so ignorant. It must be somewhere between the battery and the starter I suppose.

WTF!!! So I went to the bank today and when I went to leave, I turned the key and NOTHING!!!!! AGAIN!!!! WTF! So I had to have it towed to a local chevy dealer and sure enough it was a wire going to the starter. This time I told them about what happened before so they made sure it was connected this time and wouldn't come undone again... You know, it was fixed quickly and it was just something little, but man does it put you in a bad mood when your 2011 camaro won't start... And nothing makes you more nervous then seeing your car being hooked up to a tow truck... I got lucky both times, the tow guys were super careful around the car.

It sucks too when you are out driving and look in the rear view mirror and see a tow truck following you! LOL. Well, I am glad they found it.

Thanks for the info. Mine did the same thing, hard to start when the engine is hot. Must be the bad starter after 2 years. I'm taking the car in for a starter replacement.

Thats why you use the backseat, not in the front with the engine bay open


lol im glad your car is alright though, I though you wouldve had a dead battery, good to know it was just a loose wire

It was the result, most likely, of the dudes on the assembly line starting their happy hour after breakfast, instead of waiting until the traditional boozing it up at lunch.
