1997 Chevrolet Cavalier Lighting Problems

We just bought a 97 cavalier used and it seems to be having an electrical problem. When you turn the headlights on all interior lights turn off. also the interior light doesn't work with the door opened or with dimmer.
We have checked all fuses and nothing is burnt out. We've also changed the light bulb for the overhead light and still nothing works (glove box light aswell is not working).
Does anyone have an idea??
we have also called in any recalls and GM says that the vin number doesn't match any recalls. HELP!

Would a 97 cavalier fuel pump fit in a 2002 cavalier?


No. If you look up the part numbers on those 2 vehicles, you will find that the fuel pump part numbers are completely different. The 2002 Cavalier is most likely equipped with an EcoTec engine which did not exist in 1997. - Totally different specifications.

My '97 Cavalier seems to be having clutch problems. All of the sudden the clutch pedal has started sticking when I push it down and I can hear a grinding kind of noise. Can this just be an adjustment...


It sounds like you have a clutch slave cylinder leak. I just replaced mine about two months ago and only payed about 80$ for a new slave cylinder.

Only way it would work is to do the 01 conversion by switching the whole doghouse (fenders, hood, bumper, lights, etc.) It can be done though.
