You will have to take off the top dash pad first. its not too hard just take your time. there are several small bots/screws for the dash pad, in the glove box, and pop off the side panels on the out side of the dash, the part that the door closes against. also pop off the defroster vent and if i remember right there are a couple in there to. the dash pad will need to be poped up and lifted out. then just look around the plastic molding you will see more bolts holding that down, just take your time and make sure you get them all. i missed one and broke a small bit off of mine, but ot still went back in fine. it is a little tricky getting it from around the instrument panel and the steering wheel. but like i said its not hard just take your time.

Is there a fuse for the odometer speed sensor on a 2002 cavalier?


I doubt it is a fuse since the speedo and gas gauge get power from the same source. There are two 10amp fuses in the box under the dash. One is battery power and the other is from the key switch.
You may have done something to the connector for the cluster.
The speed sensor is mounted on the transaxle.

2002 chevy cavalier gauges not working - battery was jumped after leaving lights on- gauges quit working after


Start the car. remove the cluster fuse from the fuse panel to the left of the dash. Wait 5 seconds and reinsert the fuse. It should be fine until you replace the battery again.

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.

Replacing a heater core


YOU DO NOT NEED TO REMOVE THE DASH BOARD. IT WILL BE BEHIND THE GLOVE BOX. LOOK UNDERNEATH THE DASH AND YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE A PANEL TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE HEATER CORE. THE PANEL WILL BE ABOVE THE PASSENGERS FEET ON THE FIREWALL.

2002 chevy cavalier ac fan does not work on high,only on bi level


Most probable cause is a bad BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR (BMR). This part is located underneath the right side of the dash mounted into the blower motor housing. The BMR has a circuit board that is suseptible to corrosion and moisture damage because it is in an enclosed area with much condensation. After replacing it a couple of times, the 3rd time I dipped the circuit board in TOOL DIP - the stuff you rubber coat screw drivers with - have not had a problem since (3 years).
