It's not the fuse. You need to jump start the diagnostic cable. First you need a battery of 9v and short the + and - terminal to the diagnostic cable. Then you will see smoke. After that it should work fine.

Well, try having the car hooked up to a diagnostic machine. The abs light usually comes on with the cavaliers. my wife has a 96, and the same thing happens with the abs. As for the etf light, I dont know what etf is. Is that suppsed to be atf? That would be tranny fluid if it is.

I have 1999 chevy cavalier. My ABS light is oh.


Drive it. Then have the rear abs brake sensors checked because they seem to be the first to go in a system like that. Someone with a scan tool should be able to read out any trouble codes in the abs system

Are you using a gel based battery?
Sounds like an overload on the charging system screwing the whole electronics of the car.
If not - get it diagnosed at a dealership.
