SOURCE: cavalier won't shift into any gear

There is a pin located on the gear select pin on the transmission side. (the piece the shift cables attach to) the wrist pin is most likely sheared. I have had the same problem.

SOURCE: 1998 cavalier wont crank only dashboard lights

Are the lights bright enough so that you feel it is not the battery?By won't crank you mean that you get no click click click like the battery is dead I am assuming.If it isn't the battery,locate the starter.If you aren't sure where it is,can't find it etc.,call any shop,they will tell you for free someone will because they want business.Tap on the starter with a hammer a couple times then try and start it.Not too hard,not too soft.It may take several tries but it should start eventually.If that works it's your starter (obviously).If that doesn't work,feel free to write back and we'll figure this out.Good luck!

I have a 2005 chevy cavalier i was pulling up to get gas when all of a sudden my gear would not shift to park so i put hte emergency brake on and killed the car now it wont start what could be going on

The neutral safety switch will not let you crank the engine in anything but park and neutral. If something happens to the shift cable the trans may still be in drive.

My 99 z24 cavalier standerd shift it will not shift into 3rd gear

The gear may be stripped, can't catch other gear,have you been grinding this gear,will have to go into transmission and replace third gear, will have to wind second gear out and shift to 4th gear.May be better and cheaper to get a remanufactured transmission cause all parts are new versus just 3rd gear being replaced.
