Either alarm set, or battery to far gone, or wire harness problem.
Check battery first, and see contact for hot wire tension present.

Why wont my 1990 chevy cavalier turn over all the dash lights work but wen u go to turn it over theres nothin


Hi, the problem could be with your safety interlock. You can test this by pulling the connector off the switch and jumping the terminals of the purple and yellow wires together using a paper clip. The switch is on the transmission as shown below. If this is not the problem, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over for additional troubleshooting ideas, and let me know if you have any questions.

I have changed the starter solinoid and now i dont


Make sure the starter relay is working properly. Check to see if you are getting power at the relay + cable. Then check to see if you are getting power from the relay to the starter, you may have to turn on the ignition or get someone to turn the switch over in start position. If you're getting power here, then your problem is elsewhere. Are you getting the car to start or just no electrical such as lights and etc?

Make sure the catlytic converter is not plugged up. That can make them bog down really bad and usually does not set an error code. If you can unbolt it where the exhaust goes in and wire it up to test the theory.

Had no spark. Replaced ignition mod, 2 coil packs, and computer. I now have fire; problem is engine will not run, the fuel injector sprays fuel (too much i think). When i unplug the injector the engine...


Check for any wiring pinch which might have occurred when the injector was replaced. The injector is driven directly by the computer, so it seems to point at the new computer as being faulty. (pulse signal is always 'on')
