How do start a 1994 Chevy cavalier when the battery and alternator is good but still wont turn over?
First, make sure your all of your electrical connections and fuses are good. (battery cables are not corroded and cable to starter and ground are good) If they are good, it sounds like you either have a bad ignition switch or starter. You might try having someone turn the ignition switch to start position while using a multi-tester to see if you are getting power to the starter. If you are getting power to the starter, and it won't engage, chances are you need a new starter. If you do not have power to the starter, you might have a bad ignition switch. In certain circumstances you might try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the ignition switch to see if it will engage. If it will, I would look to a bad starter. I have found that a majority of the time, a starter is the problem, not the ignition switch. Hope this helps.
When you charge battery and will start but drive and cut off and wont start back 91 Chevy cavalier battery is dead again?
The battery only stores electricity, it does not create it. The alternator puts back the energy that was used by the starter and also provides enough electrical energy to keep the accessories running without draining the battery. If the alternator isn't operating properly the battery will discharge. Many auto parts retailers will test your alternator for free in hopes of selling you a new alternator or other part that will help you solve your problem.

Why won't a 1994 Chevy cavalier start unless it is jumped. The ABS makes a clicking noise and we have changed the alternator.?
Generally, if a car engine will not turn over without a jump start, the battery is not charged. Either the alternator is not charging it, or the battery has failed and will not hold a charge. Since you have replaced the alternator, that leaves the battery. You can have your battery tested at an auto parts store before buying a new one. It is also possible that there is something draining your battery while the…
2000 Cavalier and everytime you try to start it it doesn't start When you do get it to start the oil and battery light come on and it stalls?
Car will not start unless the battery is jumped started but the battery is okay what could be wrong with the 1995 Chevy blazer?
If the battery is fully charged and the starter is working properly it will turn over and start. The alternators sole purpose is to supply voltage to the vehicle and battery when the engine is running. When the engine is not running the alternator has nothing to do with starting the engine. If the alternator went bad and the battery was discharged then you will have to charge the battery before it will be able…
