Here's something to check. I have a 99 cavalier that started going haywire on my way to work one night. The gauges started jumping all over the place and I lost my headlights and it spit and sputtered all the way back home. The negative battery cable actually has 2 grounds. One on the engine and one on the battery box. Mine was rusted out on the battery box. I reattached it to the core support and it's ran fine ever since. Mine cavalier also has 210,000 miles on it
