i traced problem to ground wire was off at battery it was a small black wire with the neg battery wire it was broken off why the dealer did not see it is beyond me i saw it and did not think it would matter since dealer did not fix but that was it so much for being trained as a certified machanic

I own a 1998 Chev Cavalier. The clock light doesn't light up any more. How do I get behind the dash and replace the light?

speedo if there is no grove make sure not to push in to much will cause to bind up or stick. make sure all wire connections are good. not sure will get back. let me know if u get it going and what you found . if we all try to help each other it would be a great world. TIM GEBHART

red symbol in dash with a red box, downward arrow, and a rippled line assuming it represents water? Does this mean that the radiator is low on water/antifreeze?

my 96 cavy has a red light in the dash next to the check engine light that looks like a little oil can with a drip coming out of it. it only comes on when i am stopped at a red light or slow down enough to turn. what does this mean?

katelynn thats your oil pressure light either ur pretty low on oil if ur not low try a little thicker oil 10-30 maybe and june haley that is your low coolant light just try adding to your coolant and it should go off but you might have a leak somewhere cause coolant doesnt burn away in car

Mine started doing that last year.( a 2001) ive had two re built alternators put in, in the past 2 months and a new battery about a week ago....everyone keeps telling me its the alternator (the car died completely whule driving one day. After having the warning lights go off and the gauges drop to 0- still running- for months, then it just dies) im still having this problem and now its draining the battery.
Have the voltage checked for both. That will tell you if you need to replace something. At this point, i think my problem is electrical....maybe from this crazy winter.
I hope that helps you
