2003 chevy cavalier speedometer stopped working, and jumps around some times. I have changed the VSS, no change. What now. No codes on the computer

You might want to check and see if you have a speed-o cable that is worn out on the ends- or what the cable goes into is usually plastic. Listen to hear if you can hear a clicking noise first.

I installed a new brake light switch on a 1999 Chevy Cavalier. Changed the bulbs, and checked the fuses. My brake lights still dont work.

You might need to adjust the switch so that when the brake pedal is fully off, the brake switch is disengaged. You should be able to adjust it by screwing it either in or out. Make sure you have connected the wires and that they are fully seated.
If it still doesn't work chances are it is faulty.

Sounds like your speedometer/odometer cable is broken. Try a transmission shop like AAMCO or Midas.

Speedometer acting erratic on 99 chevy cavalier

Check the VVS (vehical velocity sensor) "speed sensor", The vss controls shifting and cruise control as well as speedometer. If the Cavalier shift's fine and cruise control work, the it's going to be a good chance that the speedometer n the instrument panel may have a bad connection or the stepper motor needs to be replaced. Get a service book and attempted to check for voltage going to speedo cluster( at dash), to determine if your stepper motor is bad and replace the motor or the whole instrument panel.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working

That Cluster will work But, You will have to get an Installation kit if you want the Tach to work. Everything else will hook up the Same. You have a Distribution Box (Fuse Box) Under the Hood on the Drivers Side, There is a Fuse in it for the Speedo. Inside the Cover to the Box is the Fuse Diagram or in the Back of the Owners Manual.
