I had the check engine light on for about a year and it caused me to fail inspection. Simple solution to that one. A sensor had to be replaced. But like the previous answer, I wouldn't mess around with it. Get a diagnostic check done to get the code and determine the problem. Another thing that I have heard that could cause the problem is pumping gas into it while the car is running. That has been known to set it off. It needs to be reset at the garage.
you don't theres a reason for that light go to a repair shop and have it fixed.
Disconnecting this light with the intent to sell a car and conceal problems is illegal. Removing the light to pass inspection is also illegal. If you get caught doing either you could get fined or go to jail.
Any Cavalier in the world right now isn't worth more than around $10 G's, and if you're not rocking a brand new one (which I doubt you are if there's a check engine light on) it's probably only worth about $2K. Just get it fixed.
disconnect the negative battery cable for 30 seconds and hook it back up.

There are many reasons for that check engine light. You could go to dealership. Or you could simply disconnect battery and reconnect after 3 minutes.
you can take it to auto zone or advance auto parts stores, and they will put the scanner on it for free.
What's wrong with my 2003 Chevy Cavalier if the check engine lights on and a friends computer said "misfire cylinder 4 "? It studders also. thanks Dawn
Just disconnect the battery for a few minutes then reconnect.
Disconnect the negative battery terminal for at least 30 seconds.
To fix the cigarette lighter on a Chevy Cavalier, check the fuse first. Next check the wiring and the cigarette lighter itself for a problem.
Possibly. The check engin light (aka idiot light) is a 'catchall' indicator that something is wrong in the engine compartment, especially since the tranny is hooked up to the engine.
Take off the + on battery for 10 sec that should clear the code.
You need to check all of the mounts. Get a manual to show you where they are.
check fuel sencer
Check the fuse!
Find a road with a "measured mile" and check it.
