I hve a 1987 Camaro, 2.8 6 cyl. With a standard transmission that will not start. I have replaced the battery. Everything was working fine and then one morning when I was leaving to go to work, it would not start. Nothing was left on. I checked the fuses and ll are good. I wiggled the wiring near the fuse block and I could get the sterio to work, but when I pulled the switch for the headlights, I lose all power. I tried arcing the starter, but got nothing, just a tiny spark. I have tried push starting, but still will not start. Can you help?

I already cleaned the terminals and put in a new battery. I have no power to anything, headlights, sterio etc. Is this something in the fuse block, or a fuse link that I am not seeing, or could it be corroded wiring on the starter?

At the starter u have a bunch of wires check the for battery power
and none of them burnt
pull a pit on each one to check
split the positive cables at the battery u have two and clean them

good luck
