I have a 96 Chevy Corsica and it won't start.... I


If you have a healthy spark (a blue snapping spark), it would not be a problem in the ignition system or the module. An orange, weak, or intermittent spark could point to trouble in the ignition.
I would check the timing on it, maybe it is a timing chain problem. It should have fired and ran a bit with the starter fluid. The fact that it didn't, even with a good spark, well, probably needs a little shop time investigating. Jumped timing from a worn chain? Low compression in one or more cylinders? A couple of things you need to consider.
Good luck.

Hi, I have a 1994 Chevy Cavalier with the 2.2L 4Cyl Engine. We bought it off a private owner and it was running good. We went to autozone to get a new fuel injector because one was leaking, we replaced...


The smaller wires that hook to the big post on the solenoid. These are fusable link wires. It sounds like one is burnt or not hooked up. These feed all the power to the car. Did you hook the grounds to the top of the starter bolt?

96 cavalier wont start


check the battery connections, the battery should have 12.5 volts statically tested wuith a 12voltmeter, if all that is ok pressume the starter or solenoid is at fault or a connection at trhe starter is loose.
Remember anytime you are replacing an electrical component be sure the power is OFF remove the ground cable from the battery so you dont get hurt or damage a good replacement part.

02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key


your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

Problem after replacing battery cables


Hi Sound like the regulator in the alternator is on its way out and it is not re-charging the battery as it should. Time to visit ur local auto electrician for confirmation.
