best bet is to take it to a know rep.auto shop.

Does my 2004 cavalier have a fuel kill switch


This may be related to the antitheft system. The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Normally when the injectors are turned off, the car will run for a second or two, and then stall. When it's the security locked out starter, you won't even hear a click when you turn the key. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. Do It Yourself GM Security bypass

98 chevy cavalier 2.2 will not crank. It's not the starter or battery as lights, dinging chime, and fuel pump engage...I turn the key and silence.


It sounds like the solenoid isn't sending fire to the coil while cranking. When cranking the voltage comes to the coil from the starter to by pass the coil resistor. Once cranked it starts going through the resistor to keep excess voltage from frying the coil.

My 2001 Chevy Cavalier will not start. I tried changing the starter thinking that was the problem but it still won't start after that. I turn the car on and the battery is working lights come on and radio,...


Same issue I'm having. I isolated it down to the wires that connect to the starter. The wires that come off the relay to the starter seem to have a short. If I "Jiggle the wires while having someone turn the key it will start.

98 cavalier starter


Replace the Relay going from the starter that is bolted on the frame above the cooling fan. When the security system is enabled it cuts the power going to the fuel pump and disables it.

Need to know signs of my starter going bad


I have a 96 Cavalier and lately, sometimes when I go to start my car, I turn the key and the engine won't crank. All of the dash lights turn on, so I don't think it would be the battery. If I wait a few minutes and try again, it fires right up. This is probably the first sign of the starter failing. I've been told to whack the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the key, but have also been told that with Cavaliers build in the 90's and up, this is a no-no. There are magnets inside the starter that can break if hit with enough force. I have yet to have the starter fail to the point of not being able to start it at all, but I'm sure that time is coming. Hopefully, I can trade this POS in for something decent.
