1997 chevy cavalier. Is there any way to bypass the ignition switch? The car will turn over with a screwdriver to the starter.

The problem is most likely the starter relay, not the ignition switch. Ignition switches had a high nfailure rate in Cavaliers due to starter current. GM issued a recall and added a starter relay to solve this. The relay will fail periodically, resulting in a much easier and cheaper fix than a new ignition switch. If your Cavalier has the relay, you will find it in the very front of the engine compartment, just left of the battery, fastened to the back side of the radiator crossmember. GM Dealers have the relay for about $30.00.

Starter in a 1997 chevy cavalier

I assume that you mean starter motor or starter assembly. You need to buy a "Haynes Repair Manual" for your vehicle and go from there. You can find one of these manuals at Autozone or O'reillys. Trust me, you don't want to jump into this problem without some sound background information that can be attained with such a manual.
