92 corvette sudden no start/crank Sign In

approx. 30,000

Replaced clutch master and slave cylinder a little awhile ago. The guide said there was some push rod connection under the dash, but I couldn't find it.

While I had to push the clutch to the floor to start it, it always cranked right over and shifted fine. Letting you know this just in case it has to do with the above.

Ok now to the present, went to the gas station yesterday no problems at all. Started fine at home and at the station. (It's always started real easy)

I go to head back to the gas station an now it won't crank at all. Had a friend help me push start it, started right up doing it that way.

Checked the cables, and at the very least, I'm getting power to everything else. Not sure how to check the solenoid as I don't have a tester.

I found the guide, here is the picture of the thing I couldn't find. Though I did end up finding it I think, but it doesn't have the pin like that ones does.

First thought is the switch which should be at clutch pedal isn't allowing it to crank thinking you haven't pushed the clutch down.

Look first if still in place then if so it just lets current thru or not to trigger starter so test that one side is hot and other is not when it should be.

I'll never know all configurations but may have had a rubber bumper on it that fell off and now you can't push the pedal thru the floor to make it work. Should be up where clutch pedal swings under the dash.

You just did master and slave clutch cylinder so just in likely pumping the thing it gave out right there in some way,

Yep, I'm betting you messed up the clutch switch somehow.
