turn your radio and everything else off with your door open turn your key for word and listen for your fuel pump to humif it does on the first try it sounds like you're losing fuel pressure somewhere otherwise I would lean towards the fuel pump I've had several Cavaliers 1 I'm have the same problem
Two options you can try. 1st, lock and unlock each door manually with the key including the trunk, then try to start vehicle. 2nd option, with vehicle battery, turn the ignition to the 'on' position, reconnect the battery then try to start the car.
2 ideas , your battery and your starter is of concern,because you stared it and was able to drive it home leaves me to know that the alternator does charge, starter clicks,sounds like battery going out ,have the battery replaced and by the way make sure a clean battery connection are nice and clean
This sounds like something is amok in the starter, disconnect the small wires and test again with the battery hooked up. IF still an issue, replace the starter, if the starter not activated, check wiring to the starter soleniod for faults or crossed wires.
My battery had a dead short in it which caused my transmission not to shift properly. The give away was that I checked to see if the altnator was putting out and it was not but the engine light was not telling me it was bad. I put a new battery in it and then the altnator stared putting voltage back in the battery. I had a dead short in the battery. The transmission worked fine after I changed the battery. Another problem was the fan for the air conditner and the windows would not work except when the battery charge was conected. This was my first time to see what a dead short in a battery would do. Hope this helps others with this problem.
