Sources of owners manual are Dealer, Salvage Yard, Ebay, and many on-line sites. Check Engine light will come on when the computer has detected a fault in the emissions system. Scanning the computer will list a fault code that will help to narrow down the problem. EST is, Electronic Spark Timing. I have a 97' Chevy Cavalier, and my check engine light comes on every once and a while. When it does come on the ETS OFF light also comes on...did you mean the ETS OFF light? or the EST OFF light? ETS OFF means the Enhanced Traction System. I took my car to Autozone and had them read the computer and it had something to do with a misfiring sparkplug, I replaced the sparkplugs and now everything is fine.

Check the fuses in your 97 Cavalier first. The dome light and the sunroof probably have a common power source.

It means the electronic traction control system is off. The button to turn it on should be on the side of the shifter. It is to help you from spinning your tires.

The ABS light coming on means that the abs is not working. When braking hard the car could lock up the tires and slide.

When there is a failure that sets the check engine light, the vehicle responds by going into a limp mode. This means traction control and ETS are automatically turned off for safety and to prevent further problems with the vehicle.

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.

The steering and ignition will become locked on a 97 Chevy Cavalier if the key is not inserted into the ignition and turned. This helps to prevent theft.

My car has the same issue. The ETS light and the check engine light will come on intermitenly and stay on for weeks at a time, then turn off. It is a common problem with the PROM chip in your computer. You can drive the car with these lights on, but you will not have the traction system working. You can take your car to a mechanic and have the computer reset, which is a temporary fix. Or you can replace the PROM chip in your computer.

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.

It needs adjusting or tightening.
