I'm so sorry i can't be of help to you. I had a hole in my brake line, (that's what i found out after taking it for service)...so sorry I know the feeling of challenge with having no brakes, please get it fixed NOW....don't put yourself at risk.
To the above poster, I don't know why but it seems most mechanics don't get the serpentine belt on right (size), on the Cavaliers, my bet it the shaking is from that.

Check your brake fluid level.If its ok then your master cylinder is bad. If the fluid level is low or out,those lights will go on.

Thanks. Do I have to replace the entire master cylinder? Or is there anything I could do or check to fix mine? I hear those cylinders could cost $400.

You could get one at a junk yard,that would cost less.Some brake places will rebuilt them. In most cases the auto stores wiil sell you a rebuilt one.$400.00 I beleave is the cost of a new one.

i am trying to figure out how to back the rear brakes off of this cavalier. i cant get the rotors off and have not yet come across a problem like this. there is no access hole behind the back to get at the adjuster to back them down. also there is no adjuster on the cable that i can find. any help would be great

Hi I have been trying to find this answer out online for a few days now and i can't seem to find the correct answer. So my break light is out on my rear spoiler, well one of them is (bulb) when i tried to unsrew the light assembly it won't come out. I am not sure if i have to take off the spoiler or is the plastic break light just hard to get off. any help on this would be great because i don't want to break the lamp
