If nothing here worked, go into your fuse box and replace the CLSTR fuse.
Its the one thats 5 fuses down, the fourth one from the front of the car. Its a red 10.
I had the same problem after i replaced my starter, so i went fuse pulling to see if any blew.

I have a 2001 Cavalier and even though I affectionately refer to it as my Crapolier but it is a great little car. My question one question is about my dome light overhead. Sometimes when i am driving down the road my car turns into disco, disco because my dome light will start flickering on and off. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else and if so what measures they took to correct the problem. Secondly is my oil light which sometimes flickers on and off also. More times than not when I am idle. The oil levels are fine and I have regular oil changes. Any thoughts?

Probably a door switch going bad. Mine did this for about a year before I figured it out. $10 at the dealer, pop out the old one and replace in about 30 seconds! It's in the hinge area of the front door. There are you tube videos available for guidance

#161 of 163 sometimes a strange electrical issue
Dec 15, 2012 (12:27 pm)
i own a 2001 cavalier, manual,2.2l engine, loaded except for power windows and leather (i dont even know if they came with leather). sometimes when i go to start my car all the electrical systems go dead. nothing starts up. everything works fine when i open the door, all the lights come on, everything works when the key is turned to the battery position, but when i go to start it everything dies. then a few or many minutes later the car will start no problem. im half decent mechanically inclined but completely useless when it comes to electrical stuff and i dont know where to begin trouble shooting this problem. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check the grounding wire from the battery to the battery tray. I found the tray had rotted out and separated a piece that the ground wire attached to causing all kinds of intermittent starting and dahsboard problems.
I'd also look at the battery wire connection to the starter. Check for continuity (unbroken wire) and corrosion at the starter connection especially.
Please post your finding back to assist others.
