    cycling the switch forward. I wait for clicking, lights blinking. Then I turn the key back for 1 second then forward, wait for the fuel pump to quit priming, then fully forward to start.

    What do you mean when you say that you move the key? like wiggling it in the ignition or cycling the ignition on and off a few times?

It sounds more like the key cylinder like spriggs said rather than the key itself

Get a new key cut at the dealer. If that doesn't take care of it then the key cylinder needs to be replaced.

1998 chevy cavalier 2.2l wheel noise


usually if noise is made when turning right it would be the right wheel bearing easiest way to check would be to lift the car off the ground on that side until tire clears the ground and spin the wheel to see if it makes noise also try grabbing the wheel on the top and bottom at the same time and see if you can move the wheel back and forth checking for slack.

Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else fails....call the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer
