Make sure your battery is fully charged. if it is. you may need to take it out and have it tested. they do fail even when they're new.

2004 chevy cavalier not starting after changing battery


When taking battery cables loose, I try to use memory saver. Hoping there won't be any problems on start-up? Are you saying the starter motor cranks good, but, won't start? If so, have helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs--check proper fuel pressure--check fuel injector pulse. If the starter motor won't even crank, then have to check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Any starter testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set.

Hello, hope you may have an answer for me. My wife owns a 2003 Chevy Cavalier, Automatic. It was running good. But this morning she went to start it and it will not start! Battery has juice, power is...


It sounds like you hit the nail right on the head. If your battery has a good charge then the problem is either your starter or your solenoid. However you cant really replace just the solenoid now a days because they started making the starter and solenoid all as one piece quite a while back. If you replace the starter it should solve your problem. I hope this helps you out.

2000 chevy cavalier wont turn over, lights and radio work


The starter motor on a car takes a lot of energy, you may be able to use the radio but not have enough power for the starter. You also might not be able to start it because the motor's starter or it's relay is bad. So here's what to do:

Check the connections on the battery, try loosening the connections and moving them around a bit, then tighten them down good.

Next go try to start it up again. If it still doesn't respond, turn your headlights on and see if they are still bright. If they are, then I would look into the starter or the starter relay.

The relay is in a box somewhere under your hood, possibly with some motor related fuses. Take the cover off and look at the under side of it. The cover should have a sticker displaying which relays do what. Now look for the air conditioner relay. Check to see if the air conditioner and starter relays have the same number printed or stamped on them. ONLY if the numbers mach, put the air conditioner relay in place of the starter relay, and try to start it again.

If you still get nothing, then it is either a bad starter or wire somewhere. On this car it may be a bit difficult to find and reach, but try to get to the starter on the bottom of the car. You can find pictures online of what it looks like if you are not sure. Play with the wires and knock on the starter with something hard like a rock or hammer. It doesn't take too much to do it, even a firm punch can do it, just don't break it. If this works then the starter is bad and needs serviced or replaced.

If there is still no response after this, there is nothing more you can do unless you are capable of taking things apart and checking the wiring. Good luck!

Car wont turn over


Sounds like you have a bad starter. To check this you can try taking a hammer to the starter and tap it while someone in the car turns the key. If it starts you know you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out

2003 Chevy Cavalier not starting


When you turn the key, you should hear the fuel pump make a whiring noise as it dispenses the fuel. If there is no noise. the fuel pump is not working.

Have you checked the fuel shutoff inertia switch.?
Check your owners manual for location.
