SOURCE: 2000 chevy cavalier wont turn over, lights and radio work

The starter motor on a car takes a lot of energy, you may be able to use the radio but not have enough power for the starter. You also might not be able to start it because the motor's starter or it's relay is bad. So here's what to do:

Check the connections on the battery, try loosening the connections and moving them around a bit, then tighten them down good.

Next go try to start it up again. If it still doesn't respond, turn your headlights on and see if they are still bright. If they are, then I would look into the starter or the starter relay.

The relay is in a box somewhere under your hood, possibly with some motor related fuses. Take the cover off and look at the under side of it. The cover should have a sticker displaying which relays do what. Now look for the air conditioner relay. Check to see if the air conditioner and starter relays have the same number printed or stamped on them. ONLY if the numbers mach, put the air conditioner relay in place of the starter relay, and try to start it again.

If you still get nothing, then it is either a bad starter or wire somewhere. On this car it may be a bit difficult to find and reach, but try to get to the starter on the bottom of the car. You can find pictures online of what it looks like if you are not sure. Play with the wires and knock on the starter with something hard like a rock or hammer. It doesn't take too much to do it, even a firm punch can do it, just don't break it. If this works then the starter is bad and needs serviced or replaced.

If there is still no response after this, there is nothing more you can do unless you are capable of taking things apart and checking the wiring. Good luck!

The Blinkers and the Brake Lights are the same bulb. So check the brake light switch. Flashers use a different flasher unit, than the turn signals

I want a 1983 chevy Suburban repair manual 6.2 L Diesel -- All it says is Model 10 -- 1 ton


You can get the original GM dealer service manual from faxonautoliterature.com. It will have everything includung wiring diagrams in it. I've used them before and had excellent service.
If you are just looking for some help with your engine then Haynes has a Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330 that is excellent for the 6.2 diesel. It's about $20 and covers the 6.2 and the 6.5. It includes a lot of tips that aren't in the GM book, especially up grades to some systems.
Hope this helps.

My 1955 Chevrolet radio fuse has to be replaced


fuse box is on the left side in front of the drivers left foot on the firewall. Be aware though that many aftermarket radios may have an in-line fuse in the power supply line.
You can quickly check every fuse with a test light...just turn the key to on and test power to both ends of each fuse. Only one should have no power...the one for the headlamps (if there is one). Best part about working on one of those is that you can get under there with a light and actually see everything!
good luck.

1985 Chevy 1/2 ton


If you have no dash lites< I would suggest checking either of the following as thse are the most common problems 1) chec your fuses 2) test the headlite switch, as for the brake lites I would again check the fuses and then move on to the brake lite switch and see if there is power going into the switch and coming out of the switch with the brake pedal depressed, if not it's the switch if there is power trace the wire back to the brake lites checking all connections in between for power. Finally test the lite pig tail ( socket ). Good luck and rember to rate all the solutions that you get on FixYa, thanx
