Customer Question
Hi there I just...

Hi there I just bought a new 2015 Chevy sonic LT and today I went to leave work and it wouldn’t start. All lights and stereo works it just makes the chime sound doesn’t even crank

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

Fuel is full haven’t checked spark plugs it’s brand new! 300 kms on it

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sonic yourself? What have you tried so far?

A guy at work said it was the starter relay so I went and got one but that did not help at all A guy at work said it was the starter relay so I went and got one but that did not help at all

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don’t think so

If you turn the key to run then use a tool or wire to cross the terminals to the starter. Will it crank and will it start?
