SOURCE: 2001 cavalier died while driving, now it wont

Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.

The ABS and traction off lights usually indicate a bad wheel speed sensor. I can't remember if the service light came on the three times mine went. The most common one to fail is the left front.

Try this cheap fix first.

Remove the left front wheel speed sensor, clean and reinstall it. They are magnetic and some times road debris will block the sensor. If that was the problem the ABS and traction lights will go off when you start the car.

Your second option is to have the shop scan the vehicle trouble codes, usually this costs an hours labor.

Hope this helps

It is not anything with the transmission itself. it is your throttle position sensor, sometimes after driving at a steady speed and then coasting it loses its mind a little. You get the trac light and then it wont shift properly unless you shut the car off and restart it then everything is ok because the computer resets. It is fairly easy to replace.

could be a p.c.m. if you can't read codes.

Engine light if giving a cooling circuit problem, senses that the fan won't come on. Trac goes on when the abs wheel speed sensors don't sense right speed (open or closed circiuit). Could be a fusible link near starter.

a/c clicking on and off, could mean charge is insufficient or too much r134a in the system.

Those are my thoughts on it.

Chevrolet customer service said the ets light means enhanced traction control (ets) check the fuses. if you do not find a fuse blown you need to take it to the nearest chevy dealer so they can run a diognostic on it to find the code and replace any electrical parts that need replaced so this light will shut off.

also you can contact them any time at

2004 chevy cavalier,possible fuel pump problem


with the 2.2 eccotec engine it sounds like the ignition module the trac of light comes on with the check engine light you are probably throwing code p0300 random missfire. the ignition module sits on top of the engine is silver with fins it is held in with three torx screws and runs about $100 dollars. running you car in this condition can severely damage your catalytic converter. hope this helps.
