Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
I replaced the alternator and when i did it srated right away. when it was given gas at the engine it cut off. i tried to restart it and it acted like it wanted to start but it wouldn't turn over. now it won't even act like it wants to start it, it acts like the alternator is bad but i know its not. can you tell me what could be a few trobleshotters for this?
Chances are it might be the battery, However if the battery is good and you still can' get it to start, Then turn key to on position but dont try to start car. And see if you can hear the fuel pump kick on from the rear passenger side of the car. It should only kick on for a couple of seconds. If not you might have to replace the fuel pump. I have a 00 cavalier and had to do that.
