Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

No door chime, radio won't turn off.

I have an aftermarket head unit in my Cavalier, along with the spiffy harness that gives me a door chime.
I had disconnected the battery when I was doing some work and I reconnected it, now I don't get a chime, and the radio won't shut off when I open the door or remove the keys from the ignition. Think I might have to get a new wiring harness? Any other ideas?

    I installed the wiring harness and the head unit a year ago... everything was working fine until now. Didn't splice anything. This problem just sprung up, after I disconnected and reconnected the battery (which I had also done before, with no problem).

Did you have to splice any wires? Also could you have been sold the wrong harness, and chime modual?

I have a 01 Chevy K2500HD, so I need the door chime wire harness to install an aftermarket head unit


We have no parts here at fixya, you either get this from a wrecking yard or try to order the harness from a GM dealer.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

My sister has a 2000 chevy cavalier b4 the door chime and the interior dome light worked now they both dont, we replaced the bulb and fuse to no avail and I have no clue what's wrong with the chime.


the chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light

Were is the fuse for door bell


Is the door chime working and you want to disable it or is there no chime at all?First off the door chime comes through the radio speaker,if you need to disable it you will need to cut the wire from the speaker to the chime.If is annoying you can spray foam on it and muffle it .I believe that it uses data bits from the head unit (radio) to function so another way to get rid of it is sort of drastic but change out your head unit.Sorry your question only asked about where the fuse is and to the best of my knowledge is that is is none.

the radio runs the door chimes as well as a number of other components. dash lights things liketha so if your stereo is not working thats why your door chimes are not either. I would start with fuses then look to getting a new stereo only thing ir a n aftermarket harness for that car runs about $150 bucks

Want to replace factory radio with aftermarket


It wont mess up the ECM but you'll most probably lose the door chime and the lights on chime. They both work through the factory radio, chiming through the left speaker.

04 silverado fm radio works but cd player dosen't or any info


Had the same problem with my 2004. Replaced the stock radio with a aftermarket pioneer unit. If you replace it make sure you by the aftermarket harness so it will plug right in and all your chimes will work.
