Be sure the battery posts and cables a real clean, it takes a lot of current to turn the starter and minor corrosion between the posts and cables is enough to cause this type of problem. Also, make sure the battery has no dead cells.

2004 chevy cavalier. 57000 miles. turn key and nothing works. not even the dash lights. new battery. is there an inline fuse that may be the problem ? if so, where would it be

If memory serves me correctly, there are ring terminals on the starter. One of these is the battery positive, and there is another one stacked on top of it that goes to the fuse box. Check here for a bad connection. Please note, the small ring terminal just excites the starter. - I dont think there is a fusible link in this system, but if there was, it would be right near the ring terminal on the starter.

My 2500 chey silverodo starts hardfor the first 10

Hi, if it's a diesel engine, they all have to sit for some seconds because of the glow plugs. Some diesel don't send power to the starter until the glow plugs run for the pre-determined amount of time. There are many things that could be causing this. Fuel filter, clogged injectors, fuel pump going bad or bad connection to fuel pump. Try checking out for this things..
Take care

Replace the throttle position sensor then. Am pretty certain that's the problem.

You might have it checked for codes too. Sometimes codes are stored that do not cause a CEL, but give clues as to what is failing.

2004 cavalier cranks but won't start

ok this could be a number of problems first i would make sure your fule pump is in working order if the car gets any type of power just sit in it turn the key to auxillary you should hear a hum or whirling sound as the pump initiates if you dont hear that ya pumps gone bad.. if there is no power check your battery make sure it has proper connection and has enough charge to kick over if its a realtivly new battery it could be your altnators gone bad it can also be your starter key switch i had this on my 1996 cavalier i bypassed it with a push button starter hooked directly to the starter.. now it may be your starter but if it has no power at all id check your battery if it does get power the way ya cna check the starter with out taking it off is to take a flat head screw driver and place it at a angle between the 2 screws making sure it contacts both screws the car should turn over there may or may not be a lil sparking and make sure to wear a rubber glove in case if it does nothign then more than likly your strter or the solinoid has goen bad and needs to be replaced
