The starter solenoid, or ignition switch is bad, and either one needs to be replaced.

I don't know about 2000, but my 98 Sunfire I had to change the DRL (Daytime Running Lights) relay. It's a little black box, 5 pins if I recall. It's in the fuse box on driver side, end of dashboard, after opening the driver side door. The fuse panel should have a legend for each fuse/relay as well. Easy as changing a fuse.

Turn the wheels all the way to the right. Look between the back of the driver side wheel and the fender. You will see the reverse light switch just above the transaxle.

Dashboard lights are used to help the driver know what is going on with the vehicle. The cars manual will have a diagram specifically for the vehicle's year, most have a oil change, gas, check engine, battery, and seat belt dash light.

your starter is on the bottom of the car in the driver side of the engine take the two bolts that holds it in place and take the wire that is connected to it out and remember how to put it back the ground wire goes on the bolt that looks gold and the power wire goes to the red bolt then hook on the wire that conects to it and put it back in place
