What would cause a 2001 chevy cavalier has to be started touching wires on the starter?

There are 2 wires to thr Starter. A thick cable which comes directly from the attery and a thin cable which comes from the ignition switch. it would appear from your description that one of these is either loose, dirty or has a bad solder joint. Establish which wire you are touching that makes it work, then you might have to replace the terminal on the end.

Perhaps you need to start with fog light problem I am guessing we do not know for sure the switch was the cause, if you can remove them from the equation. When checking for shorts make sure you check light bulbs to,
Next, since the multi function switch was the next step in your problem solving, I suggest you remove the new switch check out all wires to the connector, be especially careful to make sure none of wires have pulled out or partially pulled out of the connector. Let me know when you finish this then we can move on to continuity testing.
My best guess is the connector as it is common to both your fog light and multi-function switch,
Above all don't let it get to you, these problems can be frustrating but they also can be interesting and fun especially with the right assistant

If i have a 1996 chevy cavalier i have the firing order for the spark plugs but need the order for the distributor or ignition coil

Firing Orders
  • Sending Units And Sensors
  • Starting System
  • GM Cavalier/Sunfire 1995-2000 Repair Guide


    See Figures 1 and 2
    To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
    If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.

    Both headlights quit working simotaneously

    There are just (3) possible reasons for this:
    (a) your headlight switch has failed, or
    (b) your headlight relay has failed.
    (c) Fuse 1 (25 Amps) has blown

    The headlight relay and fuse 1 are located (I think) in a fuse/relay block under the hood.
    The headlight switch is part of the "Multi-function Switch" on the steering column.

    Here's how to replace the 2001 PT Cruiser multi-function switch:

    Multi-Function Switch Removal & Installation
    1. Open the hood.
    2. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
    3. Remove both upper and lower steering column shrouds.
    4. Disconnect both posi-lock harness connectors at the rear of the multi-function switch.
    5. Remove multi-function switch mounting screws and remove switch from vehicle.

    To Install the new multi-function switch:

    If replacing the multi-function switch, the combination flasher and windshield wiper/washer switch
    must be transferred to the new multi-function switch.

    1. Remove the two Torx(R) screws retaining the wiper/washer switch, place next to the new
    multi-function switch and install two screws.
    2. Place switch into place and install mounting screws. Torque multi-function switch to column
    retaining screws to 27 inch-lbs. (3 Nm).
    3. Connect both posi-lock harness connectors at the rear of the multi-function switch.
    4. Install both upper and lower steering column shrouds.
    5. Connect the battery negative cable.
    6. Close hood.
    7. Verify vehicle and system operation.

    How do I replace the sparkplugs

    Buy the appropriate spark plugs from your auto supply store. They will need to know your engine size (# of Cylinders Etc.) as well as the info you have supplied here (yr make model) Gap the new plugs to manufacturer specs. Follow the plugs wires from the distributor to the plugs. Remove plug wire and unscrew one plug at a time so you do not mix up the firing order and replace with the new plug. Put wire back on. You may want to replace the distributor cap and rotor at this time as well. Be sure, again not to mix up the order of the wires. Mark them in some way so you know how to put them back on the new cap in the same order they came off of the old cap. Medical tape and a numbering system works well. Also use a felt pen to mark the old and new caps to correspond to the numbers on the tape. Does this help? Let me know. Thanks.
