This is an easy fix. open the hood, drivers side toward the firewall. There is a plug with a single wire that screws into the tranny. you'll need a large deep well socket to get it out.

got buy the part at a part store and it will be obvious once you see it. Took me all of 10 minutes to replace.

Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier?

the above answer that a manual transmission has no dipstick may not be entirely accurate. many manual transmissions (including that in my 1993 cavalier VL 5sp.) do have a dipstick for checking the manual transmission fluid. jack the car up and check the rear end of the transmission, just below the level of the CV axles. look for a plastic cap with an "L" shape to it hanging over the back end of a plateau on the transmission casing. that will be the fill cap for your manual transmission, and should have a small dipstick attached to the end of it for measuring the amount of fluid in the transaxle. it is true that some transmissions are completely sealed and will not have this plug.

Manual switch is about $10.00. Hope you have a manual it is a lot cheaper.
