I had the same thing happen on my 1996 cavalier. The tail light socket was corroded really bad, so I cleaned it and tried replacing the bulb. That didn't work, so II went to the dealer and bought the factory replacement bulb and it still didn't work. I ended up taking the car into the dealer and they replaced the whole tail light socket that the bulb plugs into for about $40.00. I haven't had any problems with it since.

Use a test light or a volt meter and make sure that there is power going to the brake light... Then check your ground for the same

Right blinker blinking fast and then now sound or light on either right or left and brake light does not work now.


when you have a fast blinking light the front or rear turn signal is probably blown and for your brake light check your fuse.

LEFT REAR TURN SIGNAL IS NOT BLINKING. WHEN I PUT THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL ON IT LIGHTS UP BUT DOES NOT BLINK. ALSO MIGHT NOW BE RELATED BUT MY LEFT WINDOW WONT ROLL DOWN AND LEFT SIDE WONT POWER LOCK.


I doubt it is related. The blinker problem is most likely a bad bulb on that side. The window and lock problem may be a bad connection in the wiring harness in the door. Check the fuses as well.

Left blinker is fast front blinker light working left rear blinker light not working.


When a turn signal bulb is blinking fast, it is an indicator that a bulb is bad in the system. Replace the left rear turn signal bulb, then see if the left front blinker has gone back to normal. This is most likely your problem. Let me know if it is still a problem and i will help you fix it. Good luck

Left and right rear brake lights are out. center brake light comes on. rear blinkers are out too. front blinkers blink fast like a blown bulb but they arent blown. fuses are good.


it sounds like you need to replace the turn signal switch ( also known as a multifunction switch). The brake lights also go through that switch; You will have to remove the cover from around the lower part of the steering column to gain access to the switch.Hope this helps. Please leave comment.

1998 Chevy Cavalier Z24 left rear brake/turn lamps will not work


Sometimes even a new bulb will not work. If you have a Digital Multi Meter you can check that you have power going to the rear. I know that sometimes when a vehicle loses a bulb in one end that it can make the other end stop working. With that said, I suggest that you double check to see that the front works. I used to own a 98 Cavalier RS with the 2.2 liter motor and I know that there are fuses under the hood and behind a little door on the drivers side in the car. Might check fuses under the hood also.

Chevy Cavalier 2001 turn signal blinks fast


If new bulbs don't work, it is probably the harness that holds the bulb. I had to replace both on my car after fighting with the problem for over a year and not knowing.

Chev Cavalier 2003 only one rear turn/brake/hazard light


I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.
