1996 Lt1 Corvette won't start

by Joe Abreo
(San Antonio, Texas USA)

Just bought this vette with 29,000 miles. Records are clean no accidents, roll backs or such. Drove it from Houston to San antonio. Everything ok except when I filled up 20 miles outside Houston, 5 miles later "service engine" light come on. Checked all fluids but everything fine. Drove into SA at 65 MPH parked on my driveway and later put car in garage. Stared car next day, just to inspect it in sunlight. Everything ok, no oil spills anywhere in garage or driveway. Following day (Sunday) car won't start (tried several times to start) but only got clicking sound. Monday, it started and I drove it 5 miles to see if service engine lite still on, it was. Today, was going to take care to auto shop to have problem with lite diagnosed but it won't start. There is no clicking sound from Engine/starter. Besides Service engine lite, ASB lite come on and stays on. Any ideas, anyone.
