Chevrolet cavalier problems

During the summer my car needed a jump and someone put some kind of box to charge it instead of cables. the computer was shot and it was replaced with a used one. since then the interior lights went out the radio stopped and the fuel gage no longer works. what could be the problem because now she won't crank.

Look for which one of your gauges that are not working. You may need to take it to the dealer to find out exactly why. Could be a bad sensor somewhere.

I got a 1996 chevy cavalier bought new battery and alternator but when u take the jump box off it dies its acting like its not charging battery lights on and dies immediately.


Make dure you installed the alternator cortectly. If do, you were probably sold a bad alternator. Take the alternator to the parts store you bought it at. The will.test it and refund your money, or replace it.

I have 05 kia rio. jump started dead battery but the cables were crossed and killed it instead. purchased new battery. car stuck in park. worked when screwdriver in override button but still won'


There is a large maxi-fuse between the battery and alternator. Its at least 100 amp or more. It may be in the cable at the battery, or in one of the fuse boxes.
You may also have damaged the key switch or the brake circuit.
You may have to get a book to get the wiring diagrams to check everything involved.

Hi I have Chevy cavalier 1995 it was running OK in the summer now when the cold siesan started when I live it for while or over night it takes me while to start it, what may cos that? thank you.


try by changing the coolant temperature sensor, this may be your problem. Coolant sensor problems will manifest themselves during cold starts and during the warm up period, such as hard starting, erratic idle, smoke, stalling, etc, good-day !

You can drive the car during the summer, your radiator cools the engine. Today's cars are not air-cooled engines, they are water-cooled.

1999 Ford Ranger - Has a BATTERY LIGHT on at idle, GAUGE shows charging ALL the time, CONTINUITY between positive & negative battery cables (battery disconnected), SMOKE from negative battery post...


There is a diode in most older alternators that when working properly put out the light u speak of. The guage has some age so - take ur truck to advance auto - auto zone or one of them - have them check the battery - if u had to get a jump and had a problem it might be time for a new battery. You don't say how old the battery or alternator is so have them looked at.
If the problem leaves you stranded again then you will know it soon enough. To avoid being stranded - buy a GOOD or BETTER jump box - in the winter u need this - -also you can for a short time - remove your battery and CAREFULLY hook your cables to your jump box - wrapping the POSITIVE cable in some kind of old rag [t shirt is good] put a little tape around it or otherwise secure it so it doesn't hit metal while your using it as a battery and this will get you home or to a shop.

WHAT TYPE OIL DO I PUT IN 96 CHEVY CAVALIER


I grew up in wisconsin myself and it does make a big difference to what type of oil you use. in your vehicle 5w-30 is recommended however during the summer i use a 10w30 and in winter SAE30 this is in my experience the best way to maintain the performanced of your vehicle and keep the wear and tear to a minimum

1997 Chevrolet Cavalier


your radiator could be getting stopped up. also water pump could be weak. during summer though you have electric fans that should be working. need to check. you can purchase some stuff called water wetter by redline racing oil that will drop water temp 20 degrees which is substantial when a thermostat is usually 180 to 190 and boiling is 212.
