1996 Chevrolet Lumina Q&A

1996 Chevrolet Lumina Question: Car won't start

Car won't start. Makes no sound; radio works and lights are bright. Try to start off and on for approx 1/2 hour; car starts after approx 1/2 hour. Runs good for approx 7 days then won't start again; same as before. -
Answer 1
It's possible that the starter is starting to fail. You could check to see that there's battery voltage when your assistant turns the key to START while you have a meter or testlight on the smaller START wite at the starter. If there's 12 volts at the START wire and the starter isn't turning, it's defective. Here's a directory link for you: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=37204&car_brand_names=Chevrolet -
