Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
My 97 cavalier has been starting just fine most of the time and out of the blue it won't even turn over. the radio and my lights will be working. then i'll try it a few hours to a couple days later and it works just fine again. I originally thought that my starter was goin bad so a few days ago i got a new one along with silinoid. Started no problem this morning, i drove it to the gas station, and when i went to leave it wouldn't even turn over. I don't know what to do and i'm scared everytime i leave my house that i may not be able to get home. please help
I have a 94 with the same problem. It turns out that it is the park safety switch located on the back drivers side of the engine hooked to the top of the trans. It is such a possition that it catches all the weather and the connections corrode. It is a treat to get your hand on it but it can be done if you can wiggle it side to side chances are it will start. The permant fix would be to unplug clean throughly and lubricate.
