I have a 93 chevy cavalier. I’m having trouble getting the car to
start. It started out occasionally when trying to start the car, I
would just hear a whinning noise from the starter. They I would try
again and the car would start right up. It got worse as time went on
until all it did was make a whining noise. I took out the starter and
put in one I got from a junk yard and now it’s totally dead. I get
nothing at all when trying to start the car. So I tried 2 different
starters plus the old one and none of them do anything. The old one
doesnt even whine anymore. It seams that it’s getting power though
from what I can tell. I checked all the fuses and they all look ok.
Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Had a neon like that, after trying a new started. I kicked myself for not
look at other easier culprits. The connection at the battery, was corroded.
Mine had a strap instead of a screw or lead lug, that had corroded from the
inside. It was thin as a couple sheets of paper.
So check both terminals and clean thoroughly.
Hope this helps.
