Asked by Apr 01, 2012 at 05:04 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Base Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I disconnected the battery and now all it does is turn over.... I've tried everything but taking it to a dealership
(apparently not needed) so if anyone has anything new that hasn't been posted yet would be much appreciated
thanks

Ya dude tried that but it didn't work. I heard that process is for the chip-key! I ended up having to get it towed to a dealership and get them to reprogram it! Didn't cost as much as I expected but imma make sure of don't happen again! Thanks for taking the time to reply!
