Disconnect the s terminal on the starter and connect the battery, if the starter engages then its the starter, if it doesnt check the voltage on the small wire it should be dead unless the key is in the start pos

You need to make sure the solenoid wire isn't making contact with the starter wire. Be sure you don't have the purple wire making contact with the red wire.

I got a 1997 chevy cavalier which do not want to start check starter is find now tryin to replace the starter relay but can not find it


The starter relay was added as a recall item and is not shown in Chilton or Haynes manuals. You can find it at the very front of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, attached to the radiator crossmember..

1997 chevy cavalier. Is there any way to bypass the ignition switch? The car will turn over with a screwdriver to the starter.


The problem is most likely the starter relay, not the ignition switch. Ignition switches had a high nfailure rate in Cavaliers due to starter current. GM issued a recall and added a starter relay to solve this. The relay will fail periodically, resulting in a much easier and cheaper fix than a new ignition switch. If your Cavalier has the relay, you will find it in the very front of the engine compartment, just left of the battery, fastened to the back side of the radiator crossmember. GM Dealers have the relay for about $30.00.

Car wont turn over


Sounds like you have a bad starter. To check this you can try taking a hammer to the starter and tap it while someone in the car turns the key. If it starts you know you have a bad starter and need to replace it. Hope this helps you out

97 chevy cavalier starter works sometimes, next won't disengage


It sounds as though the solenoid on the starter is stuck. if it is a used starter a light tapping with a hammer may release it (very light). DON"T tap it if it is a new or rebuilt starter you may void your warranty. If it is a new starter it should have a warranty. If installed at a garage call them for warranty repair if you installed it yourself pull it off and take it back for replacement. Most places I deal with for starters and alternators, either new or rebuilt have least a 1 year warranty. mike
