1999 Chevy Cavalier Wont Start

1999 Chevy CavalierMy car wont start. I changed the starter. I change the battery. Also change the ignition. The only power that comes on is the dome light and the hazard. When I turn the ignition to “ON” nothing happens.


Wont Start

You can check to battery positive at the “S” terminal on the starter while someone holds the ignition key in the “START” position. If you see battery positive, check the ground. If both are there, replace the starter. It is possible to get a BAD, new starter. If you do not see battery positive at the “S” terminal on the starter you will need to trace the wiring to see why not.

Could be as simple as a blown fuse. Start by checking the main 50 amp fuse and also check the battery voltage at terminal “B” on the starter to make sure your fusible link is good.

Next you will check the neutral switch or clutch pedal switch, depending on if it is an automatic or standard shift. If those check out, the wiring and ignition switch are the only things that are left.
