Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

My 97 chevy cavalier will not start.

My car will not start. I dove it to work on Friday and it started fine. When I went to go out of lunch it wouldn't start. When I turn the key the dash board light turn on and the lights and the radio. As for the engine nothing happens. We thought the batery was dead, but we tried to jump it and it didn't start. So we replaced the starter and that didn't work. What else would cause it not to start. The engine doesn't turn over at all.

Clean battery terminals, then use voltmeter set it on dc 10amp an groung the black then while car is running touch the red probe to the main wire (large wire) in back of alternator it should read 14 volts if not replace alternator also have battery checked at a part store. If all of that is good replace starter.

You might need to get a mechanic to check voltage and fuel pressure at the fuel pump these cars have lots of fuel pump issues, you might also want too make sure that there is no exposed wiring on the drivers side kick panel or you could short out your fuel pump....

97 cavalier key won't turn


My daughter was told the same thing when her key wouldn't turn and was getting stuck in her 97 chevy cavalier. The used-car dealer suggested going to a Chevy dealer and getting a master key remade, not a copy of the key. We did for $16 and the new master key did the trick! It's as smooth using the key as in a new car. Try that first before any of the worst-case scenarios...

No power, jerking bad 1998 cavalier


Possible dirty fuel filter. I'd start there first, as it's the cheapest route, and quite possibly replacing the filter will solve your problem.
