Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

98 Cavalier I have a battery light on with an arrow down on it. It would come on periodically for a year which is how long I have had the car. Just this week the battery light with the + and - sign came on, and the battery quit working. So I replaced the battery yesterday, and the battery lights still stay on.

If you have a multimeter, check the voltage on the battery with the car running. You should have 13.5 to 14.5 volts dc. If you only have 12 volts, then your alternator is not charging, and you probably bought a battery for nothing.

Low on fuel warning light not coming on


My experience is with a 98 and a 99 cavalier but I don't think the changes from 97-98 included the cluster, so here's my experience. There is no designated warning light for the fuel gauge. When the gauge gets to almost empty(just a millimeter or so above empty) the red "check gauges" light will illuminate. I don't know whether you have had the tank this empty or not, but periodic checking of the cluster should make you notice if the level is this low. Hope this helps, it's all I can say with the info posted.

Can a coroded battery end make the battery light turn on a 98 cavalier


yes it can because the cars computer is not sensing a fully charged battery & it may lead you to an undercharged battery because it is not getting it from the alternator. it takes good clean terminals on both battery & connector cables to have a healthy electrical system in your car. it's the heart feeding the veins. catch ya later.

My Daughter's 1998 Chevy Cavalier had an indicator light come on. She thinks it's an Oil Light. (Has an Arrow Pointing Down?)


It's the Coolant. I have the same car, same year and had the same indicator light come on - it was my Coolant.

DRL-1998 Cavalier Z24


Check your DRL relay that is located in the fuse box. Also check the connector under the battery box for corrosion. (Not a smart place to put a connector) GM really messed up with the wiring on the 98-00 cavaliers headlights.
