Camaro won't start Sign In

Since I have my Camaro ( about 1 year .. brand new) I had quite some issues ..
I thought they might not even be worth discussing here.. but now
my car wouldn't even start .. check out the video :

Like I said there were minor issues .. different sounds from the engine room ..
the rear ( according to Chevrolet Service .. the fuel pump which is normal)
( if thats so normal I'm assuming somebody on the Camaro5 Forum experiences the same issues.. ) So I will address these issues here too .
.. and since this is the section including Warranty as well I would like to
find out what kind of option I have with the dealer ship since its service told me for the 3rd time everything is fine.. and send me back home..

Hopefully somebody has an easy solution about my starting issue..
( Before I shut the engine off I shifted from D in to P but the gear was still in , so I had to keep my foot on the break and then kill the engine. After that the engine wouldn't come back on and the car / electric reacts like in the video.

Re: Camaro won't start Sign In

? If this wont start and under warranty just how did you get a dealer to find it normal? Thread isn't making sense without some more explanation.
How do we or any site deal with a car under warranty that the dealer says is normal.
IDK - If something is altered NOT by a dealer it's no going to be covered by warranty.
If really no starting follow this thread in this site if it will crank but not start.........

Re: Camaro won't start Sign In

hi @Tom Greenleaf , sorry I should have been more specific .
Before the car didn't start I took the Camaro to the Dealership because of Noise coming form the engine room ( which the cause was never determined ) and noise coming form the rear for the car ( which the service of the dealership told me they didn't find out the cause so they contacted the corporate office which said the noise from the rear is coming form the full pump and is normal .

In the last post I wanted to find out if this was maybe an issue like exchanging fuse of similar.. since I can't believe there is something seriously wrong with the 1 year old car.
I was assuming with the expiration of my on star road side assistance my tows weren't covered anymore. But I was able to get the car towed though Chevrolet road side service by calling the corporate office .

I have researched the following option ( in case the noise keeps coming back , because I don't want to deal with this next year when the Warranty expires ....there is something called Vehicle arbitration Law ( Lemon Law ) because of the noise coming from the engine room which the chevy service has never been able to fix. If somebody needs more info about this .. here the link :
Link deleted ..................... not allowed

I will hopefully be able to come back here in the next 2 days to let everybody know why the car wouldn't start.

Re: Camaro won't start Sign In

This stinks! I see the link to no doubt a book "Lemon Law" things that do or don't depending on what get you another car totally if this one is so elusive nobody can fix it or find it?
Just once and just South you in MA with a tough Lemon Law for new cars a person did win. They deducted every mile the car had on it as good times and charged for that or rather deducted it from the settlement.
It was a nightmare as they wanted that person to take another of the same and he was so ticked off by then wanted another brand of car totally and just compensated for the car that didn't work out.

IDK - hit the big boys hard at GM on this. What can they do for you for real? Not the dealer - go over them to someone who can make it right if another dealer or another car or something to make everyone happy if possible.
Not sure. If not luck perhaps consult a legal approach. You bought something for a purpose it can't do dependably and chances to solve it have failed is the basic mess. What do they really and legally own you I plain don't know.
This is actually quite rare now to me. Most very reputable dealers just offer you what you paid towards another usually a model up or package that's up in price some to make you happy. Doesn't seem that is working.

Don't let up. If no satisfaction ask for the next person up the ladder is what I think I would do,

Re: Camaro won't start Sign In

If the dealership identified the noise and told you it was normal, I don't see where you have any Lemon Law claim. If the noise is considered normal, then there is nothing to fix.

Re: Camaro won't start Sign In

? HT - Car isn't starting or so said. Now what?
Not certain but "Lemon Laws" are for 3 days without use of the vehicle for the same problem not fixed within a period of time to go that way. If they find it running fine how did it even leave the dealer? Lost a bit with this one??
