My daughter has the same problem with her Cavalier and yes it is the a blower motor resistor. Not sure where it is, I think some where near the blower motor. Go to the library and get a repair manual and look it up. Or go to the dealer's parts department and tell them what you want and have them show you where the thing goes, they have all the diagrams. My dealer has been helpful to me in this way.

Nov 18, 2005 (12:46 pm)
i have a 2000 LS w/ 96000 miles and I just got it back from the dealer. They told me that the problem with my gas gauge is that the float in the tank was not working properly. They told me that the entire fuel sender and pump assembly had to be replace. They wanted $800 to do the work. I found the part at Autozone for $200. has anyone made this swap them self and how hard is it? I also have a problem with the ABS / Trac Control. I also had the dealer check it. they told me the hydrolic pump needed to be replace, that was gonna cost $1200. has anyone made the repair?

Check ImpalaHQ.com, look in the how-to section. The procedure is there to show you how to change it out. The difficulty factor is how well you feel about working around gasoline. It is not too difficult to change out. If you work on your own car you should not have any problems doing it. Just follow common sense rules concerning working around gasoline.
Before you change it out consider using a fuel injector cleaner, if you have not done so. The float could just be hung up because of it sticking in one position. I was ready to replace mine also, but tried the injector solution and it worked. But not before I had already bought the sender unit. If you find that you really need to change out the sender, let me know I have the unit you need, but it won't cost you $200, closer to half new in the box. Good luck.

I just changed the resistor for my 2002 Impala blower motor Reply 1284 was very helpful, but I found if you remove blower motor and harness bracket that you have a easier time replacing resistor only five more screws,a secondpair of hands is helpful inputting blower motor back.

It mostprobably is thermostat it is hung open and not allowing coolant to reach temp. Take to aindependent repair shop check with someone you know. Should not cost $200.00

If it is your thermostat, replacing it yourself would cost you $6-$12, depending on the thermostat you choose. It's not difficult and in a position readily accesible. So, if you're handy, you can a lot of money.
