Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
I was driving it and it just died, asked around found fuel pump was not
coming on, replaced fuel pump. still did not come on, and would not run
at all. checked some more found car has Passlock anti-theft on it.
checked ignition switch, failed basic test. replaced, reprogrammed ,
still not starting. finally took car to dealer to have them do diags
and fix. GM computers would not work on car. they told me computer was
bad, replaced computer. Fuel pump comes on and now starts and dies. GM
dealer said ignition switch and instrument cluster bad. will only cost
1500.00 to fix. I said no thanks. Check fuel injectors and they get
pulses while car is running once it dies, they do not unless you turn
off key and try it starting again. Replaced instrument cluster and it
still will not start.
At this point I am out of ideas.
Find a good auto wrecker, and try replacing the mass air flow sensor.

When u replaced the computer it tripped the anti-theft system because the code stored in the new computer no longer matched the ignition. when the anti theft system is triggered on a cavalier it allows the car to start
