1998 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles
This has become quite the puzzle. When I try to start the car, It cranks fine, but no spark. When I let the key go, and it returns to the run position, I get spark, and after 4 or 5 tries it will start and runs great. I have checked it via the coil wires and sure enough, while I'm cranking, no spark. The instant I let the key go (when it returns to the run position), I get spark. Before I realized this, I have replaced the battery, completed a full tuneup, replaced the ignition switch or relay, and took it to the dealer to have a thermal harness or relay installed. This was a recall that is suppose to stop a possible fire from occuring in the column to to excessive current to the ignition switch. The dealer seems to have no idea what the problem could be. It seems easy enough (while cranking, No spark. In the run position, we have spark) This becomes a narrow window for starting the vehicle. The only item that hasn't been replace is the keylock. Help Please!
have the same problem?
