Help me with my Cavalier not starting.

35

Asked by Aug 05, 2015 at 12:00 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 02 Cav that almost daily gives me trouble starting. Sometimes I put the key in and it starts right away no problem, other times I have to mess with turning the key many times for 10-15 mins and eventually it will start.
When its not starting it doesn't turn over or anything, I think I hear the fuel pump come on, and I can hear something at the fuses like a clicking.
Would this be an ignition lock issue or something else.

Have you changed tour battery? The battery is the most inportant thing to start a car. An old battery can sometimes give you power to start and other times it is just dead as a rock.

My battery is less than a year old, and the connections look good and are tight.
