You most likely need a new battery. Batteries act like this when the CCAs(cold cranking amps) are low. The voltage will be fine but battery will only operate normally when cold.

Car never reaches operating temperature (cold weather) thus little to no heat inside


change the thermostat, sounds like it could stuck open and wont allow the engine reach operating temp, also test the constant control relay module located to the right of the battery as your facing the front of the car, also test coolant temp switch it might be defective and producing a high voltage that would cause the fans to constantly operate no matter the temp. Hope this helps

My car turns over starts then cuts off


The fuel pump operates off two items upon starting the car. When you first turn the key to the ON position you can hear the fuel pump faintly running inside the fuel tank. If you can not hear it it seems it is working for you stated the engine starts then cuts off. That tells me the engines oil pressure switch is working the fuel pump. On the oil pressure switch this switch has a third wire which is directed to the fuel pump. When the engine reaches full oil pressure the computer shuts off the signal from the oil pressure switch and then the computer turns on the fuel pump relay which stays on until you shut the engine off. I do beleive the fuel pump relay is what you need for it is not working no longer. This will have many relays with the same part number on it. You can easily swap any relay that looks the same with the same numbers on it and try it once to see if the engine stays running.

03 cavalier starts then dies


Generally when this happens all the time the fuel pump relay has gone bad. Upon starting any GM car up the fuel pump operates off the third wire on the oil pressure switch. When the oil pressure reaches operating pressure which happens in a few seconds the computer shuts off the current from the oil pressure sending unit and opens the circiut flow to the fuel pump relay. The relay will run ythe fuel pump until you shut the engine off. Replace the fuel pump relay and you shall have a good running car again

The engine turns but the car won,t start.


You will need to check for fuel pressure or dirty filter. If you do not have fuel pressure; be sure to check fuses or any relay pertaining to fuel pump (if electric). If fuses and relays are good check or replace fuel filter. If the fuel pump is mechanical disregard fuses & relays and check or replace fuel filter. If this does not resolve the problem then the problem could be the fuel pump if mechanical, If its an electric fuel pump it could be a fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, crimped fuel line or other wiring issue.

These are the most common things I run across, oh, a crimped fuel line can cause the problem in either case electric or mechanical. Hope this helps in some way, been awhile sense I worked with an older car.
