Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
Car starts sometimes just fine and then sometimes nothing/it won't turn over /radio will work just fine but car won't start.Changed starter and solenoid but the car still acts the same. Can try later and car will start
Try the hall sensor/ cam vposition sensor.

Sounds like the ignition switch isnt signaling the solenoid all the time try replacing ignition switch or test the small wire on the solenoid i think its purple when it wont start with a test light clamp on ground n probe the small wire with key in start posi=tion test light should lite if not i would replace ignition switch

I had the exact same problem on my 1998 Chevrolet 1500 c/k pickup. I also tried a new starter motor and solenoid assembly, but to no avail.
After weeks of searching for the problem, I found that corrosion had built up between the car battery terminals and the power cables extended from the car battery to the starter motor. I'm not sure if this is your problem, but it's worth a try. Also, check all other electrical connections, because these types of intermittent problems are often electrical.
