Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

BA Falcon drivers side blinker comes on and stays on. Seems to be an issue following rain. When problem occurs left blinker operates as usual the right just stays on. We disconnect the hazard fuse when vehicle not in use to avoid battery going flat. Problem is getting worse as it used to go away following locking/unlocking car doors however today following heavy rain over the weekend the light stayed on duiring two 30km trips (in peak hour traffic). Noticed that when we disconnected the smaller electrical plug behind the drivers kick panel that the front and side light went out but the rear and cluster light stayed on. Have checked for water entering cabin incuding behind the cluster and all seems dry and dusty

    After much trial and error found that if the instrumnnmet cluster was removed while the short was occurring ie and the blinker was on - it would go out. Reconnect the instrument cluster and the short would come back. Got another cluster, problem fixed abd car has 60,000 less ks on it

Falcon troubleshooting


One or more of your tires are no good.
How to check this is : hard to explain.. but will try.. Rub your hand on top the tire... If you are on the passenger side of car rub them counterclockwise and drivers side clockwise... If the tread is bumpy, it will make that noise... If the treads are smooth, then the tire or tires ar o.k.

I HAVE A 1998 VW CABRIO with left blinker issues


Ok I fixed her light issue after investigating strange noises under the hood. The wiring harness mount holding clip between the frame and radiator fans at the hood latch broke and the wiring was rubbing against the fan, cutting 3 wires and exposing 4 others. electrical taped frays and made jumpers for the cut ones and WHALLAH! All good. The reason it evaded so long is it was about out of plain sight because of the shroud until it broke the main holding clip and dropped the cluster of wires and the big connector down it wasnt loud.

BA Falcon 'door open' light is on, can't lock


Hi I have the same problem on my BA XT Falcon
Strangely it only happens after it's rained on my car (usually overnight) I then notice that the drivers lock is up and will not lock again until a nice sunny day comes and I leave all doors wide open for hours and hours!! Then all of a sudden once closing all doors normally the little dash door light turns off, and I can again lock the doors
?
Since it rained all last night here, guess what? It happened again!
So I've checked everywhere and cleaned and you name it, but nothing, I'm positive that when a warm sunny day comes again though, all will be ok.
Most annoying issue ever.
Where is this tiny bit of water that's causing this?
And which door?? Can I just disconnect one door at a time? I don't know it's driving me crazy!!!!

Left blinker problems


That's an issue with wiring somewhere alont the line. There has to be a short somewhere. Hopefully for you the short is from the new taillight assembly being installed and it would be relatively easy to get to. Hope it helps!
