i have a 2000 chevy cavalier which i was told wont start probably do to the plug that goes into the computer under the dash.what plug is this? what does it look like? i see the car reader port but no plug. any thoughts?
2000 chevey cavalier wants to start tries to turn over but cant and will drain
any battery that tries.
You need an OBD II code reader to plug into the diagnostics port to get the engine codes. You can buy one at an auto parts store for under a hundred dollars.
Here is an example of a code reader --
i rented one from auto zone wouldnt do anything auto zone said its not the reader its my car.my car wont start but it will come on all the lights and such.it overheated once or twice before it shut down but it was running fine at the time then just wouldnt start again i can hear the fuel pump kicking in and it wants to start. there was a guy on youtube who had the same car he tried the coil packs camshaft sensor only to find the plug that goes into the computer was broken at the wires.where is that located exactly? the oils kinda watery if it can be fixed i need to but i also dont want to put alot into a car that isnt worth it any advice would be appreciated.
