Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

1998 Cavalier 2.2l..

Burnt wire smell when heater is on. No rear defrost and no heater sound after removing dash and replacing the heater button unit... reattached all wires accordingly and even replaced the resistor and nothing now. when connecting to direct power the fan blows, but also still blows when ignition is off. Any ideas or even a wiring diagram for this vehicle? Or ideas on what can be done to get this working again.

Have you checked the 30amp BLO fuse in the engine compartment fuse box? Might want to replace the blower relay too. Did you find the part or wire that melted? The wiring diagram is available at http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html

SOURCE: 1998 cavalier, ignition wire to selonoid is not getting power

on your starter solenoid , looking at the schematics , you have a purple wire going to the "S" terminal (hot only in the start position) , and on the bigger stud/lug "B" terminal , you have a big red cable going straight to the battery and also on that same big stud/lug you have another smaller wire that is a fusible link to the altenator , so when you say the red wire to starter in not getting any power , are we talking about the big battery cable or the smaller purple wire ? if the purple wire is not hot in the start position , it goes from the starter "S" to the nuetral saftey switch and then to the ignition switch . we didn't put the fusible link wire on the "S" terminal and the purple on the "B" terminal did we ? this is getting long so i will stop here and wait for comment.

Smell smoke only when defrost is on


This could be a serious problem if the smoke smells like plastic or has a metallic hint ( I.E. You have a metallic taste in your mouth after smelling the smoke).
Remember the old adage " Where there's smoke, there's fire".
If you don't know how to disassemble the dash to find the problem, take it to a shop A.S.A.P. - You could burn up your vehicle by using either the heater or defroster, as they are parts of the same system.
Now for the rear defrost light;
If the light is out but the defroster works, you possibly have a burnt bulb. You'll need to remove the panel the switch is mounted in to gain access to the switch. You'll probably have to replace the switch to repair that bulb.If neither work, then you likely have several electrical issues that need to be repaired.
Sorry to bring bad - ish news!!

Rear defroster inop


sounds like a broken area on the defrost grid on the window. Check this. Most auto parts places sell repair kits for these repairs.

1998 Expedition: 2000 Ford Expedition I smell antifreeze with heate...


If you smell antifreeze it may be 3 possibilities: 1. you may have a leaking hose/hose connector , or water pump. 2. your heater core is bad and needs replaced. Unless you know what you are doing I would highly suggest taking to dealer for heater core replacement. The dash and steering colum has to be removed to get to the heater core. This is not an easy job believe me (about-900-1200 job). If you have your heater core replaced then also replace the climate control door. This is good preventative maintenance and also a a dollar saver. I would have a pressure check run on your radiator as a first thought. All you may have is a bad hose and that can easily be replaced.

Of glass defroster rear of my car chevrolet cavalier 2004, is not working I checked the fuse box and are well need help to fix this.


Check the bigger metal leads that connect up to the thin rear defroster grid. Often there are crack lines that result in no electrical conductivity. There are repair kits available to remedy this or you can try to carefully re-solder the bigger leads but you may need the kit for the thin lines.
