2001 Cavalier Gauge Problem




What do you think about this video?

UrbanRetreatYT: Sounds like you have a bad ground. I had the same issue when I bought my 99 z24 and had to make a makeshift ground wire and it fixed everything except my gas gauge which no longer works after I fixed the ground issue.

All2skitzd: I've had the same thing happen, the first time it was a blown fuse because I shorted out the trunk light. The second time it was a issue with the aftermarket radio retain power acc. and chime box.

Bruce Everett: ok sounds like you got a bad speedometer head.. we had this problem happen to us.. so we replaced it and that fixed it.. you can sometimes find a used one at a salvage yard in which case we did that .. was cheaper than having to buy a new speedometer cluster set

steven baker: This would be the body control module.... sir 

Tony Flick: Mine didnt have the same issue.. but i tryed fixing the bulbs myself to leds and totally messed it up.. the best thing to do is just go to a junk yard and get 1 from 10 to 30 bucks... better then paying 300 for a new 1..

04holmes1: I mean did not post this @04holmes1

Mathieu Caron: same here

avcomext: HI I HAVE A SUNFIRE 99 WITH THE SAME PROBLEM SINCE 2 YEARS. DID YOU GET A SOLUTION THAT YOU CAN SHARE TO ME?

Scott Kearley: Its Diffenitly an Electrical Problem I Had A 99 Cavalier That Ad A Diode Gone In The RPM Gauge And All The Other Gauges Got A Malfunction In There Lead Power Source The Car Got Confused Sometimes The Other Gauges Would Go Out .. I Took The Car To A AC Delco Mechanic He Said That One Gauge Can Make Your Other Items On The Instrument panel Go Wacky Because They Think That The Car Is In ACC mode Even Though Your Car Was Powered On The Gauges Think Your Shutting The car Off And On Before It Reponds

Scott Kearley: that only works if you have lead problems or contact not electrical....and if your car had no ground it wouldn't work..... i got a 03 Pontiac Grand Prix In My Backyard And The Grounding Unit Fell Off Somewhere Because The Car Is A freaking Piece Of crap And Rusty In Order To Get The Car To Start Or Do Anything I Have To Get A Ground Manifold

nicknaggriff: did you ever figure this out? my 03 cavalier is doing the same exact thing!

norm: All my lights are on. Just started today I did my blogs change my oil. And that's what I get for doing that I don't get it. Men don't know how to fix it. I'm a little agitated. My car doesn't have to be on for the lights to come on. Strange does anyone have any ideas

04holmes1: Sorry I did boot post this earlier, but to solve the problem I replaced the body control module (bcm). I got a new one cheap on Amazon and had the dealership flash the code for my key fob. In total it was a 10 min replacement and about $125.

Frank Guerra: i had a prblem with my 2002 and it was a bad cell in the battery and ruiend my alternator also

Jose Barrera: i just fixed my 03 cavalier it was doing the same thing i solve it by runing a wire from the negative pole on the battery to a bolt on the firewall also make sure the ground on your negative cable is bolted to the battery tray... this problem is caused due to bad ground....
