Ok this could be a number of problems first i would make sure your fule pump is in working order if the car gets any type of power just sit in it turn the key to auxillary you should hear a hum or whirling sound as the pump initiates if you dont hear that ya pumps gone bad.. if there is no power check your battery make sure it has proper connection and has enough charge to kick over if its a realtivly new battery it could be your altnators gone bad it can also be your starter key switch i had this on my 1996 cavalier i bypassed it with a push button starter hooked directly to the starter.. now it may be your starter but if it has no power at all id check your battery if it does get power the way ya cna check the starter with out taking it off is to take a flat head screw driver and place it at a angle between the 2 screws making sure it contacts both screws the car should turn over there may or may not be a lil sparking and make sure to wear a rubber glove in case if it does nothign then more than likly your strter or the solinoid has goen bad and needs to be replaced

if the car crankes and wont start there are a few things you need to have for it to run. spark fuel and timing. check for spark at plugs. check for fuel preasure and injector pulse. if these are o/k then check engine timing. if everything is o/k then you probably have a major vacume leak.

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier and it won't start. Just keeps clicking and won't turn over. I need some help please. Thanks


use test light, connect clip on grnd. , touch tip on the starter wire while turning key , if it lights starter is faulty , no light, solenoid is faulty, if it lights and indicates starter is cause you can try to gently tap starter with plastic handle of screwdriver if tapping gets it moving then brushes in starter are dirty or near worn out hope this helps

Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

1997 chevy cavalier 2.2 engine, intermittent starting problem. Replaced plugs, wires, coil packs. Sometimes it will start and run like a champ. Other times you can't get ut to start at all. I've...


When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire, or it just won't crank? If it just won't crank, you could be having an issue with the starter relay. The often become intermittent before failure. Many owners do not know there is a starter relay because it was added as a recall item i order to protect the iginition switch from burnout. The starter relay is located in the very front of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

When I attempt to start my car lights and everything come on but when I turn the key do not here ticking from starter or doesn't attempt to crank at all.


Sounds like bad ignition switch.Check battery voltage it should be 12-12.6 volts.If its good check for power at starter on the switch side of solenoid if you don't have power its the switch if you do have power and it won't crank its the starter thats bad.
