Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier
I dont think its the battery because I drove it only a few hours ago and no lights were on. I also am sceptical because of the strange sound it made when I first turned the key...
It sounds like a battery issue. New cars have a built-in voltage sensor that when it drops below a certain cranking amp level it will disconnect all power to the vehicle. It happened to me once. Try jumping it, if it starts it's the battery. Also clean the terminals as they do create a corrosive gunk around the positive terminal that cuts power from going into the wire. Some baking soda, a little water and an old toothbrush go a long way here. Also, if you have a battery terminal brush, even better. But be careful with any stuff falling on your eyes, clothes or skin.

Put the key in ignition and leave in the on position for 20 minutes and it should start after that. I had the same problem with a 99 chev silverado an it worked for that. Hope it get you going. Thanks.Bear001

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
