Asked by Nov 26, 2015 at 09:04 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers


the schematics on this car are very complicated the ground is actually going through the switch however usually on this car there is a 20 wire connector on the frame under the battery that gets corrosion on it from a leaking battery or road salt most times i would just cut the connector out and hard wire the circuit together and that usually fixes the issue of no or dim lights


as i said i have head lights running lights i was told to check my sockets which i did starting from the passenger side i did find a turn signal running light buld slightly blackened but filliment was still connected so i replace it anyways and still no turn signal brake lights or four ways now what
