The main fuse or the fusible link which is part of the positive battery cable look for a break in the cable

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.

98 chevy cavalier 2.2 will not crank. It's not the starter or battery as lights, dinging chime, and fuel pump engage...I turn the key and silence.


It sounds like the solenoid isn't sending fire to the coil while cranking. When cranking the voltage comes to the coil from the starter to by pass the coil resistor. Once cranked it starts going through the resistor to keep excess voltage from frying the coil.

Had to jump start my battery this morning. Now


It's kind of something telling you that your battery shot. The battery isn't pushing out enough amperage to have things properly function. Replace the battery if the car will not start again after running for about 2 minutes

98 chevy cavalier cranks but wont start changed fuel pump,computer,crank shaft position sensor and the theft system light is staying on


try to start the car, than the anti theift would shut the car off. you wait ten min with the key on, until you see the anti theift flash or disapear. than turn key to off position and try to start it. this will reprogram the computer.. Good luck.

you can also try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes

B4 turn key start immed-now need hold key lond time to start


Sounds like a bad battery connection, either on the battery, or the starter or engine ground, or just a poor battery.

My 98 Chevy Cavalier will not 'crank/turnover' when the key is turned - it is silent. The headlights/interior stuff all lights up and works fine but the car makes no noise when i turn the ignition


If the lights dim, its the starter, If they go out, you have a bAD BATTERY CONNECTION. This cranking with lights on . It may be neutral safety swith, May be clutch safety if manual trans. I'd go for the battery connection is poor. Ck the ground/neg first.

Car wont turn over


Sounds like you have a bad starter. To check this you can try taking a hammer to the starter and tap it while someone in the car turns the key. If it starts you know you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out
