Ok, in what way are you getting no power to the starter? Do you have power to the headlights? Do they dim a bunch when you try to start the vehicle? Is the starter clicking but not starting? Will the vehicle start if you jump start it? All electrical problems of this nature should start with a load test on the battery, even if it seems fairly new. If it tests good, the next thing I would check is to see if the headlights dim when you try to start it. If they dim I would check the cable connections to the battery, then have the starter tested. If they don't dim you could either have a problem with the ignition switch side of things or the starter solenoid.

How do you tell if starter is getting power?

The best way to tell if a starter is getting power is to use a volt meter. Put the positive lead of the volt meter to the largest ( power ) cable attached to the stater and the ground lead to the chassis. Have a friend turn the key to the start position and see if you get at least 12 volts. If the starter clicks it is getting power and chances are your starter solenoid has failed. Before doing all this it is best to inspect the grounds between your engine and the chassis. Make sure the ends and the places where they are mounted are clean. Make sure the grounds are not excessively frayed as lack of ground will cause the starter to turn slow or not at all.

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.
