Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
There could be several reasons for that to happen, and after you have confirmed that there is actually 12 volts in the battery, then you should check the battery cables for a loose or corroded connection at the battery, at the fuse/relay junction box under the hood, and also down at the starter for a loose or corroded connection, broken wires or burned up fusible link wires especially any at the starter or fuse/relay junction box. (you will know a burned up fusible link wire when you find one because it will pull and stretch like a rubber band) Also, be sure that you check all of the large maxi-fuses in the fuse/relay junction box located under the hood to be certain that none are blown, and check the ground cable from the battery and make sure that it is good and tight where ever it is bolted to, and be certain that it does provide a good solid ground to the engine and the chassis. Another possibility is that the ignition switch located under the dash on the top of the steering column has completely failed and is no longer capable of making any kind of electrical connection at all.
