If the electrical system is not keeping the battery charged you should clean the contacts on the battery terminals and wires and then if that doesn't work your alternator might be fried, its what restores the power to the battery after starting... if the starter won't turn the car over it might need a solenoid or replaced. finally make sure you check the relavent fuses. sometimes the simplest explaination is the best.

I got a 1996 chevy cavalier bought new battery and alternator but when u take the jump box off it dies its acting like its not charging battery lights on and dies immediately.


Make dure you installed the alternator cortectly. If do, you were probably sold a bad alternator. Take the alternator to the parts store you bought it at. The will.test it and refund your money, or replace it.

How do I replace a I.A.C. on a 2003 chevy cavalier


The best way to find it is go and get the new IAC Valve so you know exactly what it looks like ..While at the parts store get a small tube of die electric lube and safety glasses.make sure engine is cold...Set park brake and raise hood..Disconnect negative battery cable for safety and because if you unplug IAC Valve it will cause a dash trouble light to come on if battery is connected...So..Disconnect battery..Look at the top of the engine on or behind throttle body..You may have to remove air filter..Look around top center and you should see the valve...Carefully disconnect Valve wiring connector..Remove Valve..Inspect housing for any damage or contamination..Clean with shop towel if needed...Use lube that was purchased and lube o-ring on valve..Install valve and snug the screws tight..DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN..Lube connector terminals and reconnect wiring..Install battery negative cable that was removed ..Don't OVERTIGHTEN ..Just tight enough where you can't twist it off...Start engine and test drive.....complete..

Bad battery! if it goes dead while just sitting. A good battery should last for weeks if not months as long as there isn't a constant drain on it.

2004 Chevy Cavalier - car cranks over but won't start


Well, let me try to say this without being too offensive.....
Your car only quit running on you once. I find it really hard to believe that all of the parts you replaced so far, needed to be replaced to get the engine running again. It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that all of these "failures" would occur all at the same time.

You would rather pay for $500+ in parts that the car apparently did not need, than to pay to have it towed to a shop where they have the knowledge, training and equipment necessary to properly diagnose the vehicle and get it running again? And now you want someone to tell you what is causing the problem with your vehicle without the benifit of any diagnostic testing?

There is NO WAY that ANYONE can accurately tell you what is wrong with your vehicle without following the correct diagnostic procedures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The most anyone can do online without proper diagnosis and testing is GUESS! You seem to be doing that very well on your own.

How do I turn off my service, abs, and trac off lights off and why would they be on? I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier with the 2.2 Ecotec engine


Service light can be turned if with an OBII scanner (Autozone or any good parts store can reset service light for FREE) The ABS & trace control lights are in because you have a wheel sensor(s) that are bad - replace bad sensor and then a certified shop or dealer has to reset ABS light (EXPENSIVE TOOL)
