1990 CAVALIER Z24-3.1-5SPD, DOES NOT TURN OVER BY THE KEY I HAVE A 1990 CAVALIER Z24 WITH THE 3.1L. IT WILL NOT TURN OVER BY THE KEY. WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY ON ALL THE RELAYS CLICK AS THEY SHOULD BUT DOESNT TURN OVER. YOU WOULD HAVE TO SOMETMES TURN THE KEY AND KICK THE CLUTCH TO THE CLUTCH SWITCH MULTIPLE TIMES BEFORE IT WOULD START.

You have a bad or loose neutral safety switch on clutch pedal,on the floorboard. it works like a brake light switch, when you push clutch in, it breaks a circuit on brake pedal to make sure your car does'nt start in gear @ run over someone or thing.find it on the pedal rod @ make sure it's plugged in good.if it is you'll need to replace that switch. hope this helps!

My guess is that by kicking the clutch instead of adjusting it you will probably haave to replace it and adjust it properly.

1990 cavalier stopped while driving wont crank have changed alternator,battery, and starter


Do your headlights work? When you turn your key to accessory, do you have power to your radio and heater? If so, the first thing to check would be the fuse box under your hood. Locate the "starter relay" and have it replaced or checked at your local auto parts store. Next things to check would be the starter solenoid and the ignition coil. Try cleaning the contacts and ensuring that you have good connections. This can easily be done by loosening/tightening them and/or unplugging/plugging them back in.

Will not turn over to start i no that this 1990 chevy cavalier u have to hold brake pedal to start but it will not today.


Probably your starter has gone bad. You could try jumping it, you might have a bad battery, any clicking or anything when you try to start it? Lights come on in the dash?
