The courtesy lights are controlled by the BCM/body control module, it can be tested for faults as well as active tests of the systems it controls, which is just about everything except the eng and trans.

Dome light won't cut off after door is shut


Adjust the dome light switch by moving the switch lever to a different position. If this does not work, either the dome light switch is defective or wires inside the dome light came loose and caused a short across the switch itself.

There are two jam switches located on the latch assymbly. One on top and one at the bottom. They can become dirty and not function properly causing the dome light to stay on until it "times" out. They can be removed and cleaned so they don't stick. Once I found them, it took me about an hour to completely remove the door panel, latch assymbly, and to reinstall everything back.

Where can i find a dome wiring diagram for a 1998 chevy cavalier ?


Do your dash lights work? Check the dash light switch to see if it rotates to control the dome light, it may be turned off completely or the dome light ground wire may be loose. If not the wiring will run from the back of the fuse block through the body post to the dome light Good Luck

Oil light comes on upon braking goes out when accelerate oil level is fine on 97 cavalier


You have a faulty oil sending unit. The oil sending unit senses how much oil pressure is in the car's engine, and when it is faulty, Will trigger the light. When you hit the brakes the oil in the engine will go forward/backward and that causes a fluctuation in the pressure, which causes the faulty oil sending switch to trigger the oil light. Replace the oil sending unit switch and you will be fine.

POWER LOCKS,WINDOWS NOT WORKING.DIMMER LIGHT SWITCH IN ANY POSITION BRINGS CABIN LIGHT ON AND STAYS ON....FOREVER!


That sounds to me like your door trigger wire or trigger is bad. Look for some kind of button that gets pressed inside when the door closes. Often times door driggers only have 1 wire which may rest at power OR ground and sends the opposite signal when the door closes in turn causing your dome light to turn on/chime to ring. I'm making the assumption that the lock wont work because the vehicle thinks the door is open. Just my electrical theory.
