Does anyone know if the 1990 Camaro came with a factory installed "security" key/ignition? I have a key with a "chip" in it, and upon start-up, the dash lights flash SECURITY. Did this security system came on the car originally, or was it an aftermarket feature added later? Is there any way I could get some sort of paperwork on this? Does someone have a 1990 Camero RS Owners Manual? THX for all your help. Mary

    i have had almost the same problem in my camaro only mine is a 94 but it was the same thing and peronally i think the dealer is wrong u gotta remember the dealer wants money bad because im almost positive that if u get the manual on the 1990 rs it should tell u how to find out what the problem is but i would suggest not trying it yourself because if u cause anymore prolems then ur putting urself in more of a ditch with fixing ur car but if it is the same problem i had it is nothing more than i split or faulty wire

    I have a 1983 camaro and its all original , I would like to change the exhaust and make it sound meaner but I didnt really want to put headers on it . what do you think would be good for the car?

    I have the 91 Camaro RS (basically the same car as yours) and the security feature is factory standard. I had an issue with the chip going bad in the key due to age, but was able to install a bypass wiring system to circumvent. Hope this helps.

    If you find a manual for your car, let me know because I am looking for one as well. :)
