LorcinLS1 94 should have the non vented opti, which makes them even more prone to moisture problems

Fixed for truthfulness. Good luck hopefully you will not have to replace it, it is not unheardof with optisparks. Water/heat causing hairline cracks, rust etc.

JWD621 WD40, I know it sounds old fashoned but it displaces moisture. Spray some on every connector and wire ends, its non conductive but sounds like you blew out ths ignition module.

yotaman96 Optisparks do not like water.

nickg112 Thanks for the information. I will continue lookig and trying your suggestion. If I cannot find it, I would think that it will dry out on it's own eventually

Darkrider Also, I would probably take a hair dryer or blower and try to dry out the connectors to the ECM.

Something has grounded out.

Darkrider Sounds like some water got into the Ignition Control Module.

nickg112 A little more information. I just checked the 10 Amp fuse under the hood that says IGN. It is blown. I replaced it and the car does not start. I checked and the fuse is blown again

1994 Camaro Z28 Will not start

My 94 Z28 80,000 mile Camaro ran perfectly until I decided to detail the engine. While the car was running I degreased it and lightly rinsed it off trying to be careful not to get things to wet. The car ran after I completed the task. I turned off the motor and it would not start again. There was plenty of crank and everything else seems to work. I let it dry for a couple of hours and the car started but it started hard and did not run well. It was missing a little. I kept it running at about 2000 RPMs for several minutes. Then it died. I blew a small fan on the engine over night. I tried starting it today. It just cranks. It does not sound like it is close to starting. I wanted to check spark but I am by myself today. I did try a little starting fluid in the throttle body with no results leading me to believe that spark is the issue. I am fairly convinced that there is no spark. Where should I begin to look?
