What years of 1999 Chevy Cavalier are compatible with ignition cylinder. Looking for any compatible years or models??

1995 to 2001 Cavalier & Pontiac Sunfire ignition lock cylinders are the same. Be advised that your car has an anti theft system. If you plan on installing a used cylinder from another car, you will need to have the replacement cylinder "coded" to your original key OR have a key with the same resistor value as your original key, cut for the replacement cylinder [new or used] Without doing this, the car will not start.

My factory cd player in my 2001 chevy cavalier wont read cd's so i put a factory cd player from another chevy cavalier and now the screen says locked

Most radios and cd players in cars require a code to get them operating again after they have been disconnected from the battery for an extended time. Hopefully a dealer could help you locate the code for that model.

Lost key to 2001 chevy caviler have took everything off including the steering will but cant get off the ingetion switch what do i do

Without a key you cannot remove the lock alone. You must remove the ignition housing. It is fitted with shear bolts when new, so where the bolts sheared off will look like two spherical dome. Use a small sharp chisel to start unscrewing them the first turn or so, after that, they will only be finger tight.

My ignition switch is either locked or frozen? key won't turn, steer wheel won't move,and gear shift want move

The key/ignition switch needs to be replaced. Very common in newer GM vehicles. The key either wont turn, wont go in, or the key wont release from the tumbler. Check with a local Chevy dealer to see if there has been a recall issued for this. But you will need to have it serviced regardless.

Ignition locked

It might sound really stupid and easy, but give it a try anyway - it has worked for me in the past = just turn the wheel left and right a few times. Usually it will unjam and the key will come out as long as it is in the off position.Good luck. Hope it works for you.

My chevy cavalier 2000 has a theft system light on and it wont start

Put key in ignition, turn to on (do not start) position for exactly 10 minutes. As SOON as the light turns off, start car.

This is a problem with most gm vehicles. The vault is the computer.

If it's the factory anti-theft,that's not the problem.Make sure you have gas in it. Might need to write back.
