Camaro won't start unless door is open

Wow. I've finally out smarted the car. This is three times now the car would not start. Morning and evening leaving work. Each time I got the car to start by opening the driver's door. Once it starts it says 2 keys programmed. Wants me to open drivers window. close drivers window. Open passenger window and close passenger window. By the way after the car starts the 4 way flashers also come on. Sometimes it starts but the onstar doesn't work and the engine is not at full power....hense shut off and repeat and by the way open the drivers door and then waah laa she runs.

I am waiting for my stripes and off road exhaust to get here so the dealer can do their thing and fix the starter problem.

Sounds like a very confused computer! Pull your ECM fuse for 30 mins and then try again.

Hey, thanks for the support. Will keep you posted on results. As long as I continue to figure out how she works that's what counts. This is my 6th Camaro and this one is sooo much like my old 67 RS ...just love it... p.s. I'm a girl.

That’s pretty crazy. Careful not to open the passenger side door it might engage the ejection system.

Sounds like its the BCM (Body Control Module) not the ECM to me. Take it to the dealer, sounds like its faulty. I suppose you could try pulling the fuse for the BCM for a bit but i doubt it will help.

I got the car back on Friday and started having same problem on Monday with computer errors. Took me 4 times this morning before everything electrically worked without any errors showing up on the dash. I now have a loaner from the dealer and they are going to try and find out again what the problem is.
