Hi m30sec

There is a "Kill switch" on the shifter mechanism that prevents starting the engine unless the car is in PARK. This is a safety feature sp the car won't start and suddenly take off if it were in gear. This is usually a mechanical switch. I can'r say for sure where it is on a Cavalier. What I suggest you do is call a Cavalier dealer, ask for the Service Dwpt and ask one of the men where the gear shifter kill switch is located. I have found that most dealers are real good about helping in a situation like your. You are a potential future customer.

Hope this helps Good luck Liringh Ps Please leave a rating if appropriate. Thks

Replace starter. Car has been running fine for last 2 weeks, however today car won't start. Battery ok. What's the likely problem?


Ronald,
When you replaced the starter, I assume you did disconnect the battery. Did you clean the posts before putting your battery cable back on? I replaced my battery a couple of months ago and did not clean them and my van ran fine for several days and then one day would not start. Cleaned the posts and cable ends and everything worked fine. Just a thought. Hope this helps!

2000 s10 starter last only 2 months,


I would check current draw with a good ammeter & se how much current the starter draws when cranking. I owuld guess about 400 amps, but check with Delco. Other possibility is starter is binding on flywheel.
Did you disassemble one of the faulty staters to see if armature is rubbing on magents or coils?
Are these starters remans or new? Remans sometimes have problems.

91 datona wont start


That relay you are talking about is your starter solenoid.  If your car is a manual, put it in neutral with teh ebrake on.  Turn the key to the on position.  Take a screwdriver and jump the 2 bigger posts.  If your starter engages, then your solenoid is shot.  They are pretty cheap and easy to fix.  Keep the Dodge's alive!!  PLease rate!
