Best Answer

A bad starter or corroded internaly batery cables. Check the fuses too

also the ignition coil and or distrubtor cap/rotor could be bad

I had the exact same problem. I Replaced the batter and the starter and it still didn't work. What happened was I took it to a dealer that specializes in cavaliers. You have to hold down the brake when you start it up like a stick shift. You may have to have about 20 attempts because you tried starting it without the brake. I'm not sure exactly what the dealer did....but in order to change this he did something with the rally switch located in the front of under the hood. It should be a grey plug lookin thing.

You have 99 Chevy cavalier and it doest start is it battery radio still plays or is it starter and if it starter can i rebuild my own starter and if so how much would that be?

Sometimes there can be enough power in the battery to run electrical things but not enough to start the engine. You need to get the battery tested to see if it will hold a charge.You can try to jump start it using another battery. If it will not start this way,try charging the battery first before going on to the starter. If it turns out to be the starter, you can have it rebuilt. This can run about 20.00-40.00.
