How to fix car brake jam due to not used in rainy days & humid environment.


Sounds as if you have a sticking wheel caliper, or the brake pedal itself is not returning all the way. Try pulling up on brake pedal. If this works, lube all pedal movement points. Otherwise, jack up front of car and see which wheel won't turn, and fix caliper.

2001 Chevy Cavalier no brake lights but turn signals/hazards/backups work just fine. any ideas?


WHEN YOU APPLY BRAKE PEDAL, do you see brake lights come on ? if no then the switch is not working fine ! switch turns lights on when you depress the pedal, releasing the plunger, lights go out when you release the pedal. this switch has a fuse @ fuse block. check it ! if ok, and brake lights do
not come on replace switch, & mount properly in bracket.

Locate brake switch under dash, brake light stays on when off.1992 chevy cavalier


Should be on brake pedal under dash, could be brake switch is sticking or bad try pulling up on your brake pedal, if tail lights go off that's what it is, if not your switch is staying stuck in.

Cruise control not engaging


Hi there,

As you have not stated the Model of Chev, nor the Year of Manufacture, I will give you some general possibilities:

* Blown fuse
* Short or open in Cruise Control circuit
* Faulty brake switch
* Leaking vaccuum circuit
* Faulty cruise control switch
* Faulty stepper motor
* Faulty transducer
* Faulty speed sensor
* Faulty cruise control module

As with all electrical circuits, you should first check the FUSE.

However, from experience, the most common cause of inoperative Cruise control are:

Brake pedal switch: check that tail lights illuminate when depressing the brake pedal. If not, then replace the brake pedal switch (located up on the brake pedal assembly).

Brake pressure switch: depending on which model Chev you have, there is an electrical switch (look for wires) screwed into the brake cylinder (attached to the brake booster). This switch is a cruise system backup from the pedal switch and measures brake fluid pressure, to disengage the cruise control. When this switch fails, the Cruise Control will not engage. If you have a multimetre, you can test the resistance on the switch terminals (ask Chev for the correct resistance spec) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.

Cruise control release valve: this is the alternative to the brake pressure switch and is also mounted on the brake pedal, above the brake switch. This switch is designed to disengage the cruise control, just like the pressure switch. If you have a multimetre, you can test the spec of this switch (ask Chev for the correct test procedure & specs) - if not to specification, then replace the switch.


NOTE: depending on the year of your vehicle, your local Chev Dealership will be able extract the Cruise Control fault codes, stored in the Cruise Control Computer. This is always the fastest (and cheapest) way to identify the suspected component and will eliminate unnecessary "trial and error" labor costs. This test cannot be done by your typical garage and must be entrusted to your Chev approved service agent only, who will have the correct Scan Tool.

97 chev cavalier. When I'm driving along, an I hit the brakes, the pedal immediately starts pulsing hard. The slower I get, the worse the pulsing gets. Can someone help me out?


The pulsing is likely caused by a malfunction in the ABS (Anit-Lock Braking System) ?

Best bet is to have it serviced at a shop.

Break light bulb replacement


The brake light bulb is accessed from inside the trunk. There are 2 plastic wing nuts that release part of it. Then you pull back the covering just a bit and there are 2 more. That should release the entire Light housing. A small turn and the bulb holder removes from housing. Hope this helps and have a good day.

Can't get parking brake to release, does this car have a release


FROM LUSTY KID:

Some cars release the emergency brake when you put them in drive, provided you have your foot on the brake first. naturally.

The other possibility, your brake cable is rusted or corroded inside the sleeve and is jammed so it will not release. You might need to replace the whole emergency cable.

1996 chev cavalier brakes


Did u replace all the brake lines, front and back brakes replaced? Make sure u did the following:
1. make sure master cylinder is topped off (full)
2. go to the bleeder the greatest distance from the master cylinder, Have someone pump the brake pedal 3 times, each time about half way down w/ pedal, on 3rd pump, they should depress the pedal half way and hold it there while u open the bleeder. When air or fluid comes out and it begins to slow, gently snug the bleeder valve shut before the pedal is released. Continue to do this until only clear, clean fluid is flowing. Keep checking the master cyl. level, if u let it go down too much u will **** air into the line and have to start all over. Go to the next bleeder that is farthest away, etc. til u do the closest bleeder. Car should be running doing this, and you MUST use safety stands so u don't have the car falling on u while u work under it. Also make sure all your new brake line connections are tight, or it will allow air into the lines. Let me know how this works for u. good luck countrycurt0

Chev Cavalier 2003 only one rear turn/brake/hazard light


I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.
