Check the Main Relay and the fuse for it.
Hope this helps.

Spray a bit of carb cleaner in the air boot, off air filter housing to check if fuel pump went dead. Would be a good idea to check all fuses.

SOURCE: My battery keeps dying but my alternator is fine

First, DON"T check your alternator that way anymore. It's not good to do on newer systems! The best, quickest check I can tell you is to put a volt meter across the battery. Running with accessories off you should see voltage of about 13.5 to 14.5.
With all accessories and headlamps on high turned on, it should not drop below 12.5. (and that is the absolute low end!).
It sounds like something in the car is staying on. check the glovebox light and interior light delay and make sure they are OK. Otherwise, you will have to start checking entire system for a draw that's taking out the battery overnight. To check, you can pull one fuse at a time and see if draw goes away, then check system that fuse serves.

My 2004 cavalier will not turn over without excessive pumping of the gas pedal. Battery, starter and everything else seems to be fine. Is it the pump or something else?


Try this next time you start it. Turn the key to the run position, do not start the engine. Wait 3-5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key right back to the on position and wait for 3-5 seconds. Turn the key off. Repeat the above one more time. Now try to start. If it starts right up you have a fuel supply problem. Either the fuel pump is bleeding off or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking. Pumping the pedal is doing nothing besides buying time for the fuel system to pressurize. Post an engine size and I'll help you locate the fuel pressure regulator. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

2004 CAVALIER WAS RUNNING FINE ONE DAY AND NOW IT WILL START BUT ONLY RUNS 2-3 SECS AND SHUTS OFF


This sounds like the theft deterrent feature is activated..take a look at the security light when this happens..is it flashing?? if so try a different key or you may have to replace the Ignition cylender and relearn the theft deterrent system...only done at a shop or someone that knows what their doing..

1996 cavalier will not crank


when it wont crank, you will need a test lite to ck the small wire at starter for a 12 volt signal when commanded to start by the key. also make sure there is 12 volts from battery going to larger wire on starter. if so and still wont crank, starter replacement is probable. (assuming grounds are clean) they can be very intermittent. another quick test would be while trying to start, holding key in start position, rap lightly on starter with hammer to see if it kicks, if so, replace starter.

Chevolet Cavalier : Starter or Ignition


did you connect it tight. So there would be no current leak ? Make sure that all the wires are connected good and tight using a good wire clamp.if the starter runs sluggish, it may be your starter going bad. But I think it is still a leak on the connection.
