1997 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
first of the year had sugar put in gas tank, cost me over 2k to take care of that problem at reputable car repair shop.
in the last 6-8 weeks, every other week and no joke always close to my payday. The car will just simply die. It has done it 2 blocks from my home during a rain storm, while exiting a fast food location, and just in the driveway. The car will die. And when you hit the key you get no sound at all plus no dash lights. Before asking there is no clicking sound either, there is simply nothing. But, I do have headlights, and 4 way flashers, I think turn signals, but the wipers dont work.
The first time this happend the alternator was bad and was replaced with a tested but good condition used alternator. Week or so later it died while driving in rain to work, this time. The next day, a connecting wire to the starter was a bit loose, so we tightened it, but still wouldnt start. Removed battery to have it load tested, when battery was replaced car started, but battery tested fine. One other time a wire to the battery terminal was loose and this fixed it and it started. But this time, today, it died while leaving fast food place and has the same issues as earlier, no sound no dash lights nothing when turning the key. Fuses have all been checked and are fine. Im at my wits end! Please help
have the same problem?
