#17 of 166 Rear tail light fuse
May 18, 2007 (7:00 pm)
I drive a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Z22. When I turn on the headlights the "ext lamp" fuse blows and my dash board and break and signal lights go out. But when the headlights are off and I hit the breaks the same tail lights turn on and the signals will still work. I have replaced all of the bulbs that are effected and the problem still exists. If someone could provide some additional information it would be greatly appreciated.
#20 of 166 Day time driving lights on and off
Jun 24, 2007 (5:35 pm)
My day time driving lights are on half the time,. when I flick the regular headlights on at night , they shut off completely. So I usually drive with just my fog lights on, and my lights signal on my dash flick on and off. I checked the fuses, they are all good.
Any idea on what the problem could be?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm wondering if there is a way (like earlier models) to jump terminals at the ALDL connector in order to obtain MFL blink codes? Or is the diagnostic reader a must?
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks In Advance,

Can't jump Cavalier 94 and up, need code reader or scanner.
#24 of 166 2000 chevy cavalier radio quit working
Jul 04, 2007 (5:26 am)
i have a 2000 cavalier that has a am/fm/cd stock radio. it reciently quit working, ie no radio, no cd, no clock. as far as i know it isn't a theft lock system. i bought the car new and never had a code for it and it doesn't say it anywhere on the redio. the car has factory alarm system and remote door locks. also the warning chimes for the key, headlights and parking brake no longer work. the chimes play thru the drivers door speaker. i have disassembled the dash and inspected the radio. i have identified all the wires for the 4 speakers, the constant hot power for the memory (its good, the one that turns the lights on with the headlights, and the grounds. BUT i can't locate the wire that provides the power when the key is turned on. Does anyone know which wire this shoule be and what all it runs thru that might be causing it not to power the radio. i have checked every fuse i can find in the fuse box and under the hood, they are all good.

At drivers side panel the RDO/INTLP is the radio fuse. I would check the fuse with a 12 V test light, couple bucks at walmart.
#26 of 166 After stereo install.. I get battery drain
Jul 16, 2007 (9:30 am)
03 Cavalier LS Sport
I installed my stereo, amp and sub about 2 years ago WITHOUT using the $100 wiring harness. Everything worked fine.. but I had battery drain. Without being able to figure it out, I finally removed the stereo but left the amp and sub plugged in the way they were.. without being plugged into the stereo of course.
About a year has gone by, and I got some money so I got the $100 wiring harness but got confused so I just took everything to Circuit City and had them do the install. Again, everything worked fine.. until Saturday night. Car was dead. Had it jumped Sunday morning and took it back to CC. I figured I might as well buy a new deck since the old one had some issues.. .so I bought a new deck and had them install that.. asked them to see where the drain was if it wasnt the stereo. The guy said he couldnt find anything and if it was the amp, then I would have to send it back to the manufacturer.
I figured I might be able to figure this out another way. Talked to a mechanic this morning and asked if he could check out some stuff. Right now the power line from the battery to the amp is disconnected. If I get him to get a voltmeter or whatever and check the draw on the battery with the amp disconnected and then with the am hooked up that should show if there is a big difference in draw correct?
Anything else I should check? Any ideas? Really frustrating. Thanks,
