Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
Battery, starter motor are fine. car will crank and start for 2 or 3 days perfectly then after sitting for several hours, will not crank, when it will not start, all " run" ignition circuits funtion as they should. after a 15 minute or so period of time, car will then crank and start and will do so often as you want for next two or three days, then it will not crank again. key switch movement seems smooth, do not think it is a neutral safety switch problem. battery cables, etc are clean and okay any ideas? thanks.
I have a 1997 chevolet cavalier and it is having promblems cranking i drove it last night and at lunch today went to start my car would not start finally jumped it off and it started is this a electrical promblem
it has a 2001 motor in it and i had to get the computer re programmed i thought that might be a promblem

When it wont crank, you will need a test lite to ck the small wire at starter for a 12 volt signal when commanded to start by the key. also make sure there is 12 volts from battery going to larger wire on starter. if so and still wont crank, starter replacement is probable. (assuming grounds are clean) they can be very intermittent. another quick test would be while trying to start, holding key in start position, rap lightly on starter with hammer to see if it kicks, if so, replace starter.
