Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
My cavalier will not start. It is a 2001 2.2. When the key is put into the ignition, there it recognizes that the key is in when the door is open, so I know there is power. The battery is not the problem. The dash won't light up when the ignition is turned. I was told to check the "starter box". I have no idea what this looks like, and obviously no idea where it is located.
I need some help. Also, if someone could tell me where I could get a complete wiring diagram for my car, I would appreciate it a whole lot!
Haynes automotive manuals have good diagrams.. Check too make sure the ground on the battery has a really good and clean connection, at the battery post. If that is clean and tight then follow the neg (black) cable to where it mounts on the engine or frame, make sure it is clean and tight. Check all your connections on the starter motor, Which should be on the bell housing between the engine and transmission. You will see a smaller motor on top of the starter with a big cable and a couple of smaller wires, make sure everything is tight and secure. if you have to remove wires from starter to repair wires undo the cables from your battery. you dont wanna short these out. easier to undo batt than find a blown fusible link in the ignition circuit. if thats not your problem than it should be in the ignition where your key goes into. Good luck with that.
