If there is no power going to the headlight trace the wire back and you may find a splice near or under the washer fluid container that is corroded. My car had an improper white plastic snap connecter there that should have been a proper sealed splice. This was put there by the factory and my service technician took 2 hours to trace it because he never seen that kind of connector used in that spot before. good luck Emmery On my 97 zcar the previous owner had headlight problems so he rewired all the front lights to a working parking light wire.Whe I bought it I put it back like it was suppose to be.Then went and got a headlight/blinker cluster(the blinker thing on the collum).Changed that ..all problems solved.
i was driving in the rain last night my headlights and wipers quit working and i stop the car for 15 minutes and they starting working again and they are still working what could have cause this my car is 2002 cavalier
i was wondering whether the switch at the parking brake could affect this problem.
Could be a linkage problem..
I have a 2000 Cavalier that did the same thing with the DRL, and only one of the lights worked when I put on the headlights manually. Ended up being a burnt-out bulb that I had to replace. No wiring necessary.
theres a short somewhere most likely bad ground
a radiator is actually more fragile then people believe. A rock could penetrate it and cause it to leak. With that in mind, If the vehicle was in an accident to cause the headlights to come off, it could damage the radiator.
Check your owners manual to see how to fix your headlights. If you do not see an answer you could check with your local dealer.
There could be a problem with the power of common ground to the Cavalier light and sun roof. Check the fuses and wiring for the problem.
anti theft system is bad
How do your headlights look? If the headlights are dim, it is possible your charging system is at fault. If your headlights are bright, then check your body grounds.
sounds like the ignition control module
The 2005 Cavalier could have a fuel leak. Have the entire fuel system checked, as a fuel leak can cause a dangerous fire.
replace the head light switch
The ground ciruit for the headlights is by way of the headlight switch , the lights always have power
It is possible that both of the fuses are bad for the low beam headlights and the cruise control. A loose ground wire could cause the fuses to blow.
If the check engine light is on in a 1997 Cavalier, there can be many different things wrong besides the EGR Valve. There could be bad oxygen sensors, low oil pressure, or even low spark.
1979? 1982 is first year. Answer I a '97 Cavalier.. It probably sounds like loose lumber. That will be the UPPER rear shock MOUNT.
The switch or the relay, check the cheapest, or simplest thing first, which could be the relay, but the symptom points more to the switch.
low fluid would cause this or the pump could be going out
Bad/shorted battery? (doesn't not hold a charge)
Check the lines for the transmission fluid that run to and from the radiator. It could also be a bad gasket.
first check to make sure #1 you have the proper bulbs #2 the bulb is in the socket correctly.either of these could cause the circuit to back feed
There are several sending units (AKA Sensors) in that vehicle. Which one did you have in mind?
your headlights will burn out faster and could possibly blow a fuse, but you would go through headlights and a drastically increased rate if you use headlights when they are unneeded.
