Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
Turn on the lights and sound the horn--if both work at the same time, then the battery and it's connections are ok. Do you get a 'click' when you try to start the engine? If yes, then use a test light on the starter motor terminal (not the solenoid terminal) to see if it lights when trying to start. If it does, then the starter motor is in trouble--probably worn or defective brushes, get a replacement. If no light, then the solenoid itself has a defective high-current contact. If you get no 'click', then there is trouble in the 'start' position of the key switch, a bad neutral switch on the transmission, a bad starter solenoid winding, or wiring troubles. Hope this helps!
