Question about Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

I have a 99 Chevy cavalier. It will start up but after a few minutes it shuts off. All of the lights on the dash are lit up,(oil light, coolant,battery,and the anti-theft lights) but the check engine light isn't on. There was an ignition recall on this particular car so we had that fixed, so that's obviously not the problem. Would appreciate some ideas as to what it may be.

I have a 96 Cavalier LS 2.4L, it died on the road while my wife was driving. Some numbnut tried to jumpstart it and hook up the cables wrong... So far I have replaced the bettery, starter, ignition switch,...


After you put in the ecu, do the crank relearn, everyone knows how to do that since its common knowledge, and you're good to go.
Here is how it's done: Ensure that your battery is fully charged before attempting the relearn procedure. Do not leave any battery charger or jumper cables attached to the battery. Close the hood completely. Some applications require that the doors remain closed during the procedure.
96-99 chevy
1. Rotate the key to the start position to attempt to start the vehicle (the vehicle will not start).
Allow the key to return to the all position (same as if the vehicle would have started). The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes.
2. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns oft) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt to start the vehicle. The vehicle should start on this cycle.
3. Once the vehicle is running, the password relearn is complete.

2. The theft system light will flash (or stay lit) on the dash for approximately 10 minutes.
3. When the theft system telltale stops flashing (or turns off) turn the key to the off position for 5 seconds and then attempt to start the vehicle.
4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles/30 minutes.
5. On the next cycle of turning the ignition key from off to crank the vehicle should start
6. Once the vehicle is running, the password is learned and this completes the cycle.
7. Clear any DTC's with a scan tool if necessary. DTC history will be cleared after 100 ignition cycles.

Thank you for using fixya and keep me posted, be glad to help you get the car running 100% again

99 chevy cavalier theft system light on steady, car wont crank.


My 2000 cavalier has done this for 6 months. You take your key out then open your door, wait ten minutes and the system resets itself and the car will start-annoying you bet!!!
