The proper way to reset ignition is, First make sure you have a strong battery, 2 , make sure the radio and any thing such as lights are not on , 3 . turn the key to on position and walk away for 10 minuets. turn the key off and restart. That will do it most of the time, good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted if that does not work then your going to have to do it 3 times making it a 30 min relearn progress which is on the newer cars.

I have a 96 cavalier.it wouldnt start by using the ignition key,so i shorted the solenoid and it started...got home and it still wouldnt start,so i did the same thing and it started,then all the warning...


it can be the ignition switch or the neutral safety switch. put the transmission in neutral to see if it will start, if it does then the neutral safety switch is bad. if not then check your ignition switch

Solution for "Need help programing keyless entry remotes for 96 cavalier


The following worked for me: get in the car and shut the door, then put the key in the ignition and turn it till all the dashboard lights come on, but don't turn it any further and start the car, then press the "Lock" button on the remote, if the doors then lock then it has reprogrammed.

Hope this works for you.
