Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 1994 cavalier that will turn over, ignite, and then stall. if you continue holding the key in the start position, the vehicle continues to run. let the key fall back to the run position, the engine dies. the fuel pump works, and with a test light, the wires by the exhaust head are all getting power at ignition. i also test lighted the ignition module, and all circuits appeared as live on ignition. all grounds on the vehicle are good, the spark is good, and it was running fine until this. however, when you turn the engine over, the auto locks try to engage. it's been suggested that it's the ignition switch in the steering column. I'm out of ideas, and need help. thank you.
Most scanners will only give you a code for 1995 and up. But it seems that it could be a Crankshaft Position Sensor.Try disconnecting the negative battery cable and let it sit for a few minutes. then reconnecting it back. if not you can go to Autozone and they will scan your car with a very expensive scanner and give you a code. they usually do it for free. I think it's either the CPS or some other densor such as the MAP, MAF . You can only know if the engine is scanned.
