wiring diagram doesn't include a starter relay that is mounted on the upper radiator support. It has a short ground wire to the dipstick bracket. Broken wire = no start
Applies to the following models:
1998 Buick Skylark
1998-2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
1998 Oldsmobile Achieva
1998 Pontiac Grand Am
1998-2001 Pontiac Sunfire
A Mitchell tip.
This is a Recall fix and if your car doesn't have this relay, the recall wasn't done on yours yet. And the reason for the recall was overheating at the ignition switch with possibility of fire. Fusible links at the starter should be checked. Just tug a little on them if they stretch and break, they were burned out.
The other possibilities include, bad ignition switch, bad BCM, Faulty wiring.
