Set the following conditions:
Ignition off and ignition key out of cylinder.
All doors closed except drivers door.
All doors unlocked.
Insert the ignition key into the key cylinder momentarily and remove it.
Using the switch in the drivers door, move the switch to LOCK-UNLOCK 5 times
at approximately 1 second intervals within 40 seconds.
Close the drivers door, then open it.
Again, move the switch to LOCK-UNLOCK 5 times at approximately 1 second
intervals within 40 seconds.
Insert the ignition key into the key cylinder.
Turn the ignition switch from ON-LOCK at approximately 1 second intervals
for 1-3 times according to the desired mode.
Disconnect the battery. Unplug the alternator and take the belts off. Unbolt the alternator, and bolt the new one in. Put the belts back on it. Plug it back in and reconnect the battery. Voila! You changed your own alternator!
The bulb assembly needs to be removed from the front of the vehicle. Open the hood, and you will see that the entire plastic headlight assembly is held in place by a few hex head screws. Once these are removed the entire assembly can be lifted out, giving you access to the lamp socket. Replace the lamp (bulb)and reinstall. NOTE _ Be careful not to drop the screws in between the radiator and the grill, as they are hard to retrieve and usually get stuck on the body panel below the bumper. **you can actually avoid taking out the entire headlight if you just remove anything in the way of reaching behind the assembly. on the right side, it would be the fuse box, on the left side you can probably just reach behind if your hands aren't too large. then remove the rubber seal by prying it off. there is a spring clip that holds in the bulb, remove that by sliding it out from behind the bulb, then remove the bulb and replace.
Remove wiring harnesses, unbolt it, remove from engine. Install new alternator, apply tension using bar, bolt it, hookup wiring harnesses.
The 12 guage that was my great grandpa,grandpa and my dads is dated 1922 i have one that has the dates 01' on it The company existed with that name from 1871 to 1987 and made 12 gauge shotguns from the beginning to the end.
Had this same problem for two months. Ended up being the alignment. If you can feel it in the steering wheel the problem is probably up front. If you can feel it in the seat then it's probably in back. Cost me $90 for front and rear alignment combined. Look at the interior wall of your tires, check for uneven wear. Changing the tires alone won't fix it; you'll just destroy your new tires.
Mine works off and on :(
I stumbled across these instructions on another site and they worked great for me. I had it replaced in about 15 minutes. This is for the inside door handle. 1. Remove the small screw holding the plastic trim bezel at the inside door release. Slide the trim towards the front of the car. If it is the drivers side, that would be to the right viewed from inside the car. If it is the passenger's side, it would be to left to free it from the door. 2. Disconnect the rod from the door handle and remove the handle. Before attempting to disconnect the rod, note that the retaining clip can be released from the rod and pivoted out of the way. The rod then lifts free.
Then it's a matter of putting in the new door handle\trim by inserting the rod into the hole and then pivoting the retaining clip back in place so it locks the rod. Then slide the handle/trim back in place and put the screw back in.
These instructions work for a 2001 Prizm LSI with power windows and door locks also. I would suspect the 1998-2002 would be the same, but I can not confirm that.
The only thing that disappointed me was I ordered the incorrect color trim off the Internet (bone instead of brown) but hey it works great now! Check on Ebay for door handles. Big savings over the dealer pricing.
Edit: The person who wrote these instructions is exactly correct -- it worked perfectly on my Chevy Prizm 1999. Thanks to the author.
They probably are not very good, or they need to be used for a while
Worn, loose, or broken suspension parts. Have the suspension inspected by a professional. This can be a very dangerous situation, and I suggest you attend to this ASAP.
You can hear it running. Unplug the fridge, then wait approx 1 minute and plug it back in; you should hear it kick on.
Your blower motor resister, which is a circuit card located in the bottom side of the blower housing ( just over your front passenger's toes ) is most likely partially cooked - replace it.
Loosen the distributor and rotate it.
Any auto parts store can quote you a price for a starter for your vehicle.
probably an o2 sensor go to a shop or advance and have the light checked
The 2001 prizm has a timing chain.

i have 98 prizm lsi, same problem. just pull the seat belt a little farther the warning light should go off.
Its in the fuse box, located under the hood on the right. Pull the cover off. Check your manual, but I think that it is located in the 12th slot. Its a #20 fuse.
1) DISABLE THE AIRBAGS (lock ignition, remove Bat- cable and wait 2 minutes before proceeding).
2) Remove the bezel surrounding the shifter by freeing its catches with a small screwdriver.
3) Reach through the resulting slot with a spring tool or similar hooked tool and release (from below) two of the four catches holding the status display and shifter-slot cover onto the rest of the shifter (If this is difficult, removing the rear console will give somewhat better access). Releasing both catches on either left or right side will free the cover. It will still be captive on the shifter stalk but you can rotate it to give access to the bulb.
4) Grasp the bulb gently with a rubber-padded tool and pull it free; alternatively reach down with suitable needle-nose pliers or such and engage the lamp socket; rotate it clockwise so it disengages and falls away below and then fish it out to get clear access to the bulb. If you do this you'll no doubt want to remove the rear console in order to reinsert the socket, unless your spacial perception and ingenuity are both pretty good and your hands don't shake that much.
5) Put it all back together, re-enable the airbags.
