Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe
Hi there! I wanted to get a quick opinion before I check the DTC, but this morning I started my car to warm it up. Once it was warmed up I put it into reverse. This is what happened. The daytime running lights came on, flickered several times producing a "ticking" noise that you could here sitting in the car. After they blinked several times, they simply shut off and the service light came on. The engine is running the entire time this is going on, and it runs just fine. I also tested to see if it was just one particular gear, but it does the same thing in all gears, even neutral. I am thinking it might be some kind of relay malfunction, but my electrical expertise is novice at best. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!
P.S. The car is a 2002 Chevy Cavalier, Automatic Transmission, 2.2L OHV 4-cylinder. Thanks again!
This sounds like a altaitor problem

I have the same problem, my car's a 2002 Chev Cav, Standard.. when I turn the car on and the running lights come on, flash 5 times, then remain off. My service light also comes on.. I have a problem with my alternator or the alternator belt.. I think the car can't give enough power because the alternator's not working properly, so as a power conservation, the running lights don't work. I think.. This pittmanc is the first person to mention the alternator, I think he's on the right track. Too bad that's all he mentioned.
