My 2002 Chevy Cavalier starts but shuts off immediately and the power locks wont work either on key remote or manually. please help me!! I just had the ignition switch and ignition cylinder fixed.
Was the ignition switch and key cylinder replaced to repair this problem, or did these things start after that repair?
2002 chevy cavalier starts and then dies immediately. Has a new battery. Any ideas?
Answer: See if the THEFT or SECURITY light is on the dash or flashing. A car that starts then dies may be in theft lockout. If so, you are going to need to get that system diagnosed.
If that is not the problem, then i would check fuel pressure. If the system is not building or holding enough fuel pressure, the car will stall right away. Also check for a large vacuum leak. Try and work the gas pedal right when it= starts to see if you can keep it running.
